Who Am I?
Hi! My name is Danielle “Bella” Vasta and I am the dynamic personality behind Jump Consulting. I am based out of beautiful Scottsdale, AZ and have owned and operated Bella’s House and Pet Sitting since 2002. I am a proud graduate of Arizona State University with a Human Communications degree that I put into use every day.
Jump Consulting is a unique business consulting service because we know that starting a business or expanding one is really like jumping out of an airplane. How do you free fall? What obstacles are in your path? How do you pull the chute? How long can you soar through the air? How do you land safely without breaking your leg or the bank? Through building three businesses I have had many successes and learned countless lessons along the way. I have a lot of success in the pet industry and have proven to be a leader in this niche market. People began to seek me out for advice and to help coach their businesses to higher heights, thus a new passion and a new business was born.
I have a talent and a passion for helping others and truly enjoy being a great motivator in people’s lives, both personally and professionally. Just watch my sky diving video below! Not only do I talk the talk, but I also walk the walk with Bella’s House and Pet Sitting. Here are a few of my many successes I have enjoyed:
National Pet Sitting Business Of The Year, 2002.
Guest Speaker on SIRIUS satellite radio.
Guest Speaker on NPR’s Dog Talk.
Recipient of the Member in Action Award, NAPPS.
Guest writer in McCormick Ranch Lifestyles.
Guest writer in TrailTalk.
Guest writer in Scottsdale Airpark Magazine.
Interviewed as a pet sitting expert for the FabJob Guide to Becoming A Pet Sitter.
Increased business sales 300% from 2005-2006.
Organizer of the local pet sitting business owner’s networking group.
Created an online community for pet sitters, both nationally and internationally.
By helping YOU I achieve my life goal of motivating, inspiring, and challenging others in life. I get a natural high and do get very vested in everyone I help. While I admit I ran out of sugar a long time ago (no sugar coating), I do give you a dose of tough love and a Bella Butt Kickin’ to get you going when you need it.
My style isn’t for everyone… but it changes the right people’s lives and businesses when our lives collide! I have helped pet sitters in Canada, Australia, and all over the United States from NYC to the back farm towns of Idaho. I have coached people in Detroit when the economy tanked, and in the most affluent areas of California, Arizona, and Florida. I have the thumb on the pulse of the pet industry and I can help you. YOU just have to do the work.
Will you trust me to take the jump with you?
”Hi! My name is Lara Evans. I am the owner of Doggie-Smyle (a dog-walking, dog-sitting service in the Acradia/Bitmore area) Bella called me up one day and welcomed me to the world of Pet-Sitting. She was very welcoming and friendly and invited me happy hour with other fellow pet sitters around the Valley. She introduced me to everyone, and made sure we all got know a little bit about one another. It was wonderful to talk “shop”, and to be able to refer some of my clients to other sitters, if I was not available to sit for their pets.
Bella is very passionate about net-working and is a marketing monster! Her enthusiasm and business sense is amazing! She and I would often meet up for lunch or coffee to chit-chat about the business and she always was giving me encouraging words of wisdom and wise business advice. When I heard she was doing business consulting, I jumped at the chance for her to come in and view my “systems” to offer helpful and knowledgeable advice. She is a natural born leader with energy and enthusiasm that is both contagious and inspiring! I would recommend Bella to anyone who is really serious about taking their business to the next level!”
“I specifically wanted to work with Bella because of her experience and expertise in the pet sitting business. Her ideas and knowledge were beneficial to me and her energy is certainly motivating! I would recommend Bella if you are a just starting out, or if you are feeling stuck and need a push to move to the next level in your business”.

“Bella and Jump Consulting is the BEST!! Her attention to detail, knowledge of the pet industry, and marketing results are second to none. I’d recommend her and her consulting packages to any business owner looking to grow their business”.

“I was pet sitting for 6 years and was stuck in a rut. Bella helped me advance my business to the next level. Her sound advice, tips and assessment of my business was excellent. As I use the tools Bella gave me, I am gaining more business from better clients. I was a little intimidated to start the process. Bella is a big person..not in stature, but in attitude, personality, and in business. My first impression was different than the Bella I got to know. She is easy to talk to and very encouraging and motivating. The value is really in the financial bottom line. Even though I’ve just finished my consultations with Bella, I’ve earned back the fees through gaining new clients by using the tools Bella taught me. I recommend people truly interested in growing their businesses to work with Bella. Those ready to take action and step out of their comfort zone at times to take their business to the next level. Those desiring to become true professionals and leaders in their field will love working with Bella.

“My first contact with Bella was an incredible one! We were reviewing a great marketing book with several pet sitting companies and she was so DYNAMIC, I HAD to meet her! I have heard her speak several times and each networking/marketing idea is more incredible than the last! Anyone who is lucky enough to come in contact with Bella will be in the very best of hands!
