Well, I am starting my own business. I will be grooming pets and having a spa just for them. It is only going to be part-time at first considering I hs the children. I'm taking an ISP online and will be able to complete it in 6 months. DH is really excited. I know we pay 40 bucks a pet for our small dogs to get groomed. A typical groomer will take in 6-8 pets a day. Most groomers work 6 days a week. I don't plan on doing that until I feel comfortable with my time with schooling my children. I am amazed on how much $$ Groomers make. The good thing about it is, I will not have overhead costs. Well, maybe a bit but nothing compared to running a restaurant or any other small business. I'm really excited about it and comfortable that it may take up to a whole year to get established. Since there are so many senior centers here, I won't have a problem with getting my experience by offering free grooming. I need to be able to groom pets of all types of breeds. This would be a perfect opportunity to get experience. I've decided not to return back to the Supply Chain field. It stinks that I invested so much money and time. I worked in that field for almost a decade. I even went as far as getting certified in APICS, which is like getting easy access to any job in that field. It's really a man's club and I'm just not interested in :banghead: with the arrogance of man thinking they know more. Some men just can't handle that a women can do it better. No more Coporate America. No more worries about downsizing and losing everything you got...well materialistic things. I still have my wonderful family who does stress me out sometimes. This is it. This will be my career along with raising and schooling my children. Another good thing is... there are so many pets here in FL and it normally takes three weeks to get appts with other groomers. It will definitely be profitable. Who knows my dh may not have to work. We'll see.
