Glorified Pooper-Scooper. Salary: $15,000 or less
Your pet sitting business basically exists in name only. You only have one or two weekly appointments, and you must work three part-time jobs to keep gas in the car. If only time spent with fluffy kittens could pay the bills.
Definitely Not a Shoe Shiner. Salary: $39,400
Your small regular clientele (and their pets) simply love you. You're not raking in the dough, but you have enough business to quit two of your part-time jobs. You'll never shine another shoe again.
Pet Sitter. Salary: $48,635
Your business runs like a well-oiled machine. You negotiate at least ten new contracts weekly, and your two assistants handle the daily doo-doo duties. You've purchased a nicer home and are completing a degree in animal behaviorism.
Pet Sitting Entrepreneur. Salary: $58,400
You receive pet sitting referral work from five vet practices. This means you must hire more assistants. Your animal behavior consulting business has grown exponentially after your interview on a nationally syndicated pet talk show, What are We Barking About?
International Emperor of Pets. Salary: $99,000
You're making so much money it makes your head spin. You've franchised your pet sitting concept and are now the head of several different locations. Running a business is hard work, but no more poop duty ever. Life's good.
