This very week, Rover-Tim turns two months old and much like a new parent, I couldn’t be more in love or feel more joy than I do right now for this accomplishment. I have my moments where I feel guilt for not appreciating every minute in my fast-moving day and I am continuously recognizing how much there still is to learn but then a new day starts – suddenly it’s 4 a.m. and my eyes pop open, I jump out of bed, and I’m excited to start it all over again. Something must be going right. I might have officially left the “safe job” and begun my “dream job.”
I’m not just walking or watching dogs these days (which is my expertise and easily the best part of my job). I’m officially wearing multiple small business hats. I titled this entry Self-Management Ninja… because at any given time I’m juggling thoughts or tasks related to customer satisfaction, professional development, marketing or advertising, accounting, my business plan, market research, technology advancement, or social media. It’s blissful craziness, so I won’t complain one bit.
Now what will you gain from reading this? You’ll get to learn more about me. You will for sure hear more about this journey I’m now on to provide a great boutique style of service to people who love their dogs. And you’ll get an idea of what a day (or night) at Rover-Time is like. My newsletter and blog are all about growing a personal relationship with Rover-Time, so you can build an understanding of who we are and what we care about. It will be an honest approach to my experience beginning a start-up with the help of family, some great friends, and a few brand new partnerships.
This brings me to Rover-Time’s blog, where most of the newsletter content will live. Consider following us there! I will for sure be soliciting your feedback, suggestions, expertise, and know-how. And if you’re enjoying what you’re reading, please Like us on Facebook, and tell your friends all about us. Until next time… thank you, sincerely, for your support and love. You’re all making me feel like one happy gal.
