pay your pet sitting employeesWhen it comes to growing your pet sitting business with staff, there are many questions that you need answered.

Subjects like “Where can I find sitters to hire?” and “Should I use ICs or Employees” are popular.

One question that I received recently was “Can I pay pet sitting employees a percentage per job, or must it be an hourly rate?

Who better to answer the question directly than Bella Vasta?

Bella, of Bella’s House & Pet Sitting and Jump Consulting, has a team of employees and took some time to discuss the exact way she pays her employees (and the answer may surprise you).

  • The 3 possible choices you have when it comes to paying your employees.
  • The pros and cons of each choice of paying your employees.
  • How to keep your employees happy and motivated with your pay structure.

    at first glance.

  2. Great information Josh and Bella! Thank you. This info solidifies my decision to go from ICs to employees. Thanks for the great ideas on incentives I can give them to earn more money as well.
