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.
