Meet Kevin! A former IT Tech major turned successful business owner. After realizing Silicon Valley was a road to burnout and frustration, Kevin turned to the two things he loves the most: Fitness and Dogs. I met him midway through a major transition in his life of cleaning up roomates’ non payment of rent and a troubled relationship he vowed never to experience again. After working with him, I realized how much he loved business & measuring goals. But, without a solid woman in his life, he craved the feminine nuturing and nesting qualities.
We shopped for storage furniture and bins to house the various leashes, dog bowls and puppy gear. We talked about how to upsell and improve the quality of the care he was giving. I’m a Stay-At-Home Puppy mom with super high standards, and I got the opportunity to shine and share. Taking over some of the bookkeeping, I was shocked and pleased on the amount of money he was making a month. Averaging $4,700 a month for walking, pet sitting and bathing animals! We took a hard look at the numbers, saw where he was spending more than he was making on books, seminars and trainings. Kevin chose this business because it keeps him active, gives him the freedom to workout and network with great people.
The agency Kevin worked super hard for started to collapse. They started downsizing the platform and he found himself going from making $ 4,700 to a “Mystery” paycheck, which could have smashed someone else’s dreams. But Kevin’s vision was bigger, more creative and he grew past the leads magnet by networking and holding on the the clients who trusted him. He never panicked, just rallied. And brought me along for the ride. We tackled his first logo and he was squared up with a name for his business.
The proud owner of a new LLC, Kevin wasted no time and hit the networking scene by joining the local chamber of commerce and BNI group. He found his people! With the help of some of the people in his BNI group, he located a big space and home in the Marietta, Georgia to start his own Puppy Day Care! I see big things in his future and many opportunities for the right caregivers to work for him. And the best part, he controls the game by being the owner.
