If you’ve been catching my past few blog posts, you now know that practically ANYTHING is possible! Having built a $300,000 a year pet sitting business, I’m living proof!
But trust me, when I first told people about my idea, they thought I was pretty crazy.
I had to listen to more jokes about picking up dog poop than I care to remember. But you know what? I was the one with the last laugh. (Insert evil grin!) 😉
Today I’m sharing the ONE thing I did that increased my revenue 4X over from my first year to the next!
Here’s how it went…
After advertising my business, I got my first call.
And more calls.
Pretty soon I built a small (but solid) client base. And let me tell you, the people at the dog park talk! Word of mouth is the best advertising and better yet… it’s free! But now I had a problem. And it’s a great problem to have – more business than I could handle!
I knew if I wanted to continue growing, it meant getting help. (Gulp! A scary, yet exciting prospect.)
I was terrified at the thought of hiring people. But I also knew it was the one thing that would allow me to increase my revenue. (Not to mention the fact that I was 8 months pregnant at the time, and my belly was getting in the way more and more!)
By finally pushing past my fears and getting help, I was able to take my business to the next level.
I was able to stop pet sitting all together, stay at home with my new baby, and work on my business completely from home. (And as impossible as it sounds, I moved to Florida for a few years, even though 100% of my business was in Boston.) Talk about freedom!
So, I’ll tell you again… ANYTHING is possible!
Now my big announcement: I am SUPER excited to be rolling out my new program, The Quick Start Guide To Starting A Pet Sitting Business.
And to kick things off, I’m setting aside some slots on my calendar for FREE coaching calls for my pet loving friends out there! We’ll chat about how you can take your love of animals and turn it into a profitable business.
When I started my business, I had to learn on my own through trial and error. I WISH there was something like this when I first started.
So take your own dog out to do his business if you need to, and then go to my calendar to book your free call.
I’m looking forward to talking with you soon!
