My business skills

Are non existent. The economy stinks right now, so what do I do? Hand two dogs I walk 4 days a week over to a friend who's getting back into dog walking after a year long hiatus. Smart huh?

But still, I feel good about the decision. These dogs had a really rigid schedule and they prevented me from taking on new clients, they were seriously limiting how much time I could spend with my "little dog" group, which my dogs are part of! and my friend needs the work much more than I do.

It's been two weeks and I can tell my dogs are happier, I'm not getting that *look* at the end of the walk, that "that's it?!" look. I'm happier because my day is less frantic, their rigid time schedule was starting to rule my whole day...like the dogs would turn into pumpkins if they weren't walked exactly between 2:00-3:00.

I just hope I don't start losing clients with this economy.

It is tough out there but the one thing I have not cut back on at all is my pugs! Hopefully it will be the same for your clients. :)

I haven't been effected much at this point. One cut back from 5 days/week to 3, because she's adopting a baby and another went from 2 days down to 1...so not much. I just worry if things get worse.....

I may be expanding my business into some other areas of the city, with Bill as my part time helper. We're going to run this city!!
