Pet Sitter

Bell Curve

1
5%

Your pet sitting business exists in name only. You only have one or two weekly appointments, and you must work three part-time jobs to keep gas in the car. Even the fluffy kittens you spend time with can't put a smile on your face.

Your small regular clientele (and their pets) simply love you. You're not raking in the dough, but you've got enough business to quit two of your part-time jobs. As God is your witness, you'll never shine another shoe again.

50%

Your business runs like a well-oiled machine. You negotiate at least 10 new contracts weekly, and your two assistants handle the daily doo-doo duties. You've purchased a nicer home and are completing your animal behaviorist degree.

75%

You receive pet sitting referral work from five vet practices. This means you must hire more assistants. Your animal behavior consulting business has grown exponentially after your interview on a nationally syndicated pet talk show, What are We Barking About?

You're making so much money your head spins. You've franchised your pet sitting concept, and are signing up between 10 and 20 new franchisees each month. You're considering an international expansion strategy, but you must evaluate it while you relax on your private Caribbean island. Of course, your four high-end dogs go along for the fun.
