Have you ever wondered about owning your own business, or are you unemployed and can’t find anyone to hire you?

Are you retired but still too young and still too active to resign yourself to a life of inactivity?

Do you want to start a successful business on a shoestring?

If any of these questions resonate with you I want you to think about starting and operating a Dog Walking and Pet Sitting business.

Listen to this Introduction of “Starting and Running a Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Business” and decide for yourself whether this is the business for you. Also listen to the 2nd session which takes you further into the evaluation process of whether you’d make a good Dog Walking and Pet Sitting business owner.

With Session 3, we get going and organize your business.
