    Review for "The Dog Walker's Startup Guide"

    Excellent book that is a fast read, and an easy to follow 12 step approach to cover all basis to get your dog walking business started.
    At the end of each chapter there are action items to do. This is very helpful to keep you focused on each step and by the time you are finished with the book, the steps, and action items, you will have a solid plan. Formulas are provided to help you meet your financial goals, how to create web pages, and other marketing items too. Great story at the beginning about how the author decided to get out of current job and get into a new career.

    Great Book = Great Job and Income

    Someone purchased this book for me as a gift for my birthday. I had never thought of the possibility of walking dogs for a living but I love dogs and have two wonderful pups. My friend thought I could use a little push in the right direction (I was complaining a lot about my job I guess). It turns out that it was just what I didn't know I was missing! After reading the first few chapters I was like, HEY I CAN DO THIS! I grabbed a notebook and starting planning the business using the authors action plan. It's been three months since I started reading it and I already have six clients and more are calling every day. It didn't happen without a lot of work and I'm still working on the website but it's almost done. I've been working hard but it's finally for me, and for something I love and believe in. If you're on the fence about starting a business or becoming a dog walker, just dare to dream and be prepared to do the work and success is sure to follow. This book sure motivated me, and it was a huge help in starting my business.
