Make Extra Money by Offering Dog Walking Services For your Neighbors
Getting fit can be fun and it can be profitable too! I'm not talking about mega-bucks here, but, if you could add a few dollars to your pocket every day wouldn't that take the pressure off your limited budget? I'm sure it would.
When I first started out in my working life I wanted to work at a job that would take care of my fitness needs at the same time. I figured that if I could do that I wouldn't have to pay money out of pocket to go to the gym. And, I wouldn't have to take time out of my day to do it. I tried to get on as a Letter Carrier at the local Post Office, but alas. that was not meant to be. I do have a job now that, if I'm lucky, I walk for most of the shift but that doesn't happen every day.
I still think that the Post Office should do a public service and hire overweight people who want to get fit. Ask the applicant why they want to work for the Post Office as a Letter Carrier and if they answer "to lose weight" - hire them! You probably wouldn't get a more dedicated employee. You know what they say about us well-proportioned people. If you need to get directions just ask an overweight person - we're eager to please.
Now that we're older and getting ready to retire - or maybe we're already retired - we think about how to make some extra cash to make up for the shortfall in our incomes. After all, we're going to have all this extra time on our hands.
It's a perfect time to start a business. And, we're the perfect people to do this service. We have many good qualities that make us the perfect candidates for walking your neighbors pets for money:
- We are older. People trust us more for some reason. We've got roots in the community and are not about to leave it any time soon.
- We have the time. More people are too busy making a living to properly take care of their dogs' exercise needs. Just look at all the services offered to busy working people today. We probably wouldn't want to clean houses but we are quite capable of taking Fido for his exercise.
- We're probably going to be cheaper than those who do this for a living. We don't need to walk 12 dogs to earn a living. We're just making coffee money for our Starbucks fix. It is more lucrative than picking up pop cans and less stigmatising than dumpster-diving!
- The work is steady. That means steady pocket money and you'll get regular exercise.
