I have over thirty years in the pet-sitting business and I have loved every minute of it. For nine of those years I had over twenty people working for me; my service covered the entire metropolitan and suburban areas of a major midwest city. The experiences and encounters we all had made each day a challenge and a thrill. This can be you if you choose or you can have a business that just involves you and the limited clients you select. Each day will bring you experiences that you will laugh about and moments of utter joy because of the bonds you will develop with the animals under your care and with their owners.
Besides the fun you will have and the friends you will make, the biggest benefit of a professional pet-sitting business is the money you will earn as you build your business and increase your clientele. The opportunity will be there to build a business that you can grow and enjoy owning. The only thing that will limit your income is the amount of time you want to spend at a part-time or full-time career. I promise this business will bring you joy and fulfillment if you follow the steps I provide in the following chapters. Hold onto your hats and get ready for the ride of your life. Soon you too will be telling stories of your exploits to all of your friends such as the one I tell about the Amazon Blue parrot that bit me on the arm and then looked right at me and said, “I’m a bad boy!”
There are additional opportunities to grow your business into other areas if you decide you want to develop into a full-time professional pet-sitting business. You need to get going right now so you have some clients before the next holiday. You might not have realized it before today but every holiday is a busy season for good pet-sitters, and also a great opportunity for happy clients to tell their friends about your business. Don’t wait and miss out on the chance to grow your clientele with the next holiday. Each season and holiday brings with it new people who will recommend you to their friends and acquaintances to add to your list of clients and to your income.
For those who love animals pet-sitting is the ideal profession. You spend the day with your animal friends and they give you unconditional love. They are happy to see you when you come through their door and they make you feel like a million dollars. I can tell you this is how I have felt for the last thirty years when I open that door. All this and you are getting paid for it as well, how lucky can you be! Come along with me for the journey of a lifetime filled with hours of unconditional love caring for the best clients on earth!
