How’s business? Never been better.
One thing I wish everyone knew about this business: We do crate for the safety of the dog but we do hand dry based on the owners’ request.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: We are open six days a week and work with the client to ensure the best groom possible.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Practice, practice, practice.
My first job: Cleaning office buildings for JKL Cleaning Company.
Your role model (in business or in life generally): My mom. She always does the right thing even if it isn’t in her best interest.
The key to a successful business: Be here for your clients. Let them get to know you and get to know your clients.
