Now, meet TODAY’S guest:

When Julie Bartkus was in college she needed a part-time job and that’s when she found the child care industry. After school, she began working in the retail world, loved it, and was soon promoted to manager. That’s when she had a rude awakening, and learned employees can do some crazy things.

But she learned to persevere and found her way back to working with the child care industry, where her heart was as a college student.

For 20 years, Julie Bartkus has worked as a productivity and performance expert and the creator of The Staff Motivation and Retention System. She helps child care leaders create the positive, productive workplaces that they desire and deserve. Through her workshops, courses, coaching programs, keynote presentations, staff motivation retreats, and products, Julie shows her clients how to eliminate the destructive communication patterns (such as workplace gossip) and mindsets that keep their teams stuck.

Julie Bartkus is an internationally known Child Care Business Success mentor, speaker and is also the best-selling author of Child Care Business Success. For her book, she interviewed several child care business owners who stand out above and beyond all others in their communities because of one thing. This one thing is THE thing that Julie is so very passionate about sharing with child care owners worldwide. It has the power to transform child care programs, including filling enrollments in record time, attracting and retaining DREAMY staff and clients, and sustaining a motivated and dynamic team; this allows child care owners to experience the time, freedom and profits that they desire and most importantly deserve.
