This post is insanely important for two specific reasons.
1 – It’s the first official announcement that our 2014 Scholarship Program is open for applicants (that’s you).
This simply means we will be awarding one qualified pet care professional a fully paid trip to attend our upcoming pet sitting live event in Las Vegas this October 19 – 22, 2014, including fully paid round trip air fare, 3-night hotel stay at the Tropicana, and a registration ticket to the 3 day event.
2 – The deeper purpose of this blog post is to get you thinking deeper about everything you do day in and day out as a professional pet sitter.
And why is that so important? Keep reading and you’ll quickly learn what I mean.

Let’s start with that self evaluation, if you will.
I titled this post “Why did you really become a professional pet sitter” with emphasis on the word “really.” If we were talking, and I asked you simply “Why did you become a professional pet sitter” you could easily list a handful of reasons, covering everything from “I was tired of my old career” and “I wanted to work for myself” to “I absolutely love animals and this is the perfect way to spend time with them.”
And each of those replies would be more than relevant, sufficient and accurate.
However, see what happens when we insert the word ‘really’ into the middle of the question:
“Why did you REALLY become a professional pet sitter?”
It forces you into a state of true and personal reflection.
