It sounds like the perfect plan. You become a qualified pet sitter in your area, get business cards printed up and are ready to get some referrals from your local vet, groomer or pet store.
How ideal. You’re a savvy business owner and see the power in partnerships. Naturally, every person walking in and out of any of those places has a pet and is a potential client.
You start making the rounds with business cards in hand and quickly realize not everyone is as excited as you are about leaving your cards on the counter. You are told no and sent on your way.
You walk away confused and defeated. Not to worry, we’re going to get you back on your feet while showing you how to stop wasting your time and actually get your cards displayed on those counters.
