How to Keep Revenue Flowing Even When You Can’t do the Work
I’m starting a new series where I answer questions directly from our Pet Nanny Coach community members. Today’s question comes from Norma, who would like to discuss how to maintain a pet care service when one has family members who need caregiving.
So in Norma’s specific situation, she has elderly parents that she needs to care for, and therefore she can’t be in two places at once, and thus her income stream from her pet sitting business dries up when she cannot do the work for her clients.
And the answer is very simple. You need to build a team to turn on an income stream in your pet sitting business without you having to do the work. It’s as simple as that. I wish I had a better answer for you.
Many of you are not interested in the team-building model, which is fine, but I always get this question. How do I make money without having to do the work? And if you don’t want to delegate the work to a team member, that revenue stream will turn off.
But the good news is you don’t have to have a large team to make a substantial income in the industry or enjoy more freedom in your life. Two to three people tops can help you be able to maintain sanity, make more money, and to be able to focus on the things that are important to you.
And in Norma’s case, that would be to be able to care for her parents and still make some money. Her second question was about other ways to make money in the pet care industry but from home.
This would be a product-based business you can look into, Norma. Some companies do what they call drop shipping. So you would sell their products, and then when people place the order, the product is shipped from the manufacturer directly to the customer. Therefore you don’t have to hold any inventory at your home or office.
If you want to create another revenue stream without having to trade hours for dollars or provide more services, look into creating a product-based business with companies offering drop shipping services. That would be my suggestion.
