    Jiggy It's Official I own a mobile grooming business

    My long story of filling in for a mobile groomer who has to retire now and now the sale of the business is closed. I have not lost so far a single customer. It helped that I have groomed their pets mostly all of them for a few months. It was so surreal to bring the van home to my place and know it is mine. I know it is probably nothing for all the pros here, but this is my first business, it sounds weird to say I am an owner.

    I am also tired!!! Lots of paperwork transferring ownership and opening banks, setting up my desk but I am so jazzed I don't care. It was worth it. My advice is to hold on to your dream. Get your grooming experience in order. I worked 3 years for someone else and then covered a business that I bought. In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be mobile. I worked at a great shop and will miss some of them for sure. But behind the wheel each day on my own business is awesome. It is what I was supposed to do and had no idea.

    Yes that is exactly how I am feeling. The hours are not bothering me. I know you have family like kids and hubbie. I don't have either yet, I admire you for handling that demand.
