@ Home Pet Care.

Since I can remember I have always loved animals. I can even remember the first time I was bit by my dog" Chocolate", a Chocolate Lab lol.

I remember it hurting my feelings and of course it hurt physically too, but I was not phased, even then I was convinced animals had their own psychology and was curious as to "why" the dog bit me.

It has been a hobby interest ever since. In high school I attended a 2 year vocational course in Animal Care that introduced me to the entire Animal Care Field. I loved it and got As all across.
In high school even I had a time where someone not so fascinated with animals would have left.

The first time ever walking a dog the dog got loose! it was sooo sad, long story short, the dog died on his venture trying to track down his vacationing human mom and dad.

I though for sure I failed my class, but my teacher and the school saw something else, they saw determination. I kept going to school even though my heart was broken. I excelled in all areas, even wildlife rehabilitation. Other cane to me to get help!

I got a full scholarship and college funds for this toughness. I was so happy!

So naturally you probably see where that took me. Yes, I started a pet care business. It was very rewarding teaching people about animal health and how to preserve it with @ home pet care.

Fact is people just don't understand what they are doing to their pets when they leave them to board somewhere, even if its a vets office.

I made my own schedule, I charged whatever I want(affordable of course, I love animals), and I gave lots of love to my pet clients! It was very therapeutic and felt great to be helping someones health bill stay lower.

Since I had worked in pet care for a while I already had a ton of supplies and so the start up was not costly for me.

There are a ton of other things to do with pets from your home or on your own schedule, scroll below to get a full guide on how to start your own pet business!

Do you have questions for me about my experiences? Contact me, I'm so happy to share!

Mystery Shopping.

First thing I want to say and this should be on EVERY mystery shopping site you may find! If you are being sent a check for cashing to do a mystery shop DON'T CASH IT!, It is a fake check that if you cash will get you in trouble with the law!!! When is the last time you went to work on your first day(regular job) and got paid for the whole week, job or project? NEVER.

OK so now that that is said I want to share my love for mystery shopping. I love it, love it, love it! I have seen my work improve a lot of services, have people keep their jobs, people get fired etc...Mystery shopping works! The companies that use mystery shoppers are companies that provide services to  consumers like me and you.

The pay is anywhere from $5 to even over $100 per job/project. The length of the jobs or projects can be anywhere from a few minutes to hours.

A good organized person with good writing and communication can make a decent income. Many times you will get reimbursed for what you buy which means its free!

The biggest reward I found in mystery shopping is making shopping for future customer a better experience.

Daycare @ Home

When I first married my husband  I was avid about staying home. I felt no one else had the privilege of the first word, first step, all the firsts our son would have.

If Daddy missed it I understood, but for Mommy it was not OK to miss. At the time my husband was a full time student, working part time receivIng his GI Bill. It covered a lot of the bills and we had the ability to buy and acquire a ton of toys and needs not only for our son but for s someone else's child too.

It took me a little while, but I ended up signing up to give care with the local Child Development Center. I also got approved to take care  of children whos parents were in training or working and receiving some type of help from the welfare system.

I loved it and it worked out great for me for a little while. But it was not something my son liked. He was a jealous little man and did not like sharing mommy. Needles to say that ended my Daycare @ Home days a year and a half later.

It was very nice though while we had it. If your children can handle you loving on other children go for it! My child happened to be a friends son, so it was hard not to give him just as much love.
