Totally OT...My New Petfood Store

Recommended Posts

Well, my wife was made redundant last November, after 35 years as a Business Advisor, and so we decided to go in with a colleague, and open an online (and real brick and mortar) Petfood store!

 

We've been open for two weeks, and it's been quite a lot of work to get to this point..hence, why I have been not posting much.

 

I think I have found my own personal Niche!...As you probably know...I am NUTS about our four-legged friends..when not playing OFF or Skyrim, I am with my two Collies all the time!...In fact, Sophie is by my feet as I type..... This way, when I'm in my little Shop, I can talk all day about Dogs, and Cats and Horses...which is fabulous!!! :grin:

 

2012 has started really well, and I am feeling very much more content with life, than I have for a couple of years!

 

This was our first customer..a Lovely Border Collie called Jack...who had a great time helping himself to some free samples!!

 

 

 

 

This is our website (not trying to sell anything...just to show you) :grin:

Please wish us luck in our new venture :drinks:

That's great, Widowmaker! I'm truly happy for you. I've had precious few times in my life when I was excited about going to work even most of the time, let alone every day. I hope your business grows and fulfills all your dreams.:good::drinks:

Simon, if ever a business fitted well - congrats, my friend, it looks like you have found the right thing to do!

And if you should ever feel like expanding, you could open another shop called "The Angler"

:drinks:

 

As a self-employed man, I give you some very serious advice (painfully learnt!) : keep all eyes on the books;

don't spend income like winnings - the taxmen often react late to a new business, but then they want all

money backwards for the last years. Collect all bills for any spendings which COULD have been business-

spendings - even for stamps and pencils.

 

I wish you all the good luck you may need in these tight days, Simon - all the best! :good:

Seek your bliss, that's what I've heard, anyway. It's nice to actually hear about someone who has been able to find exactly that! Congrats, WM!

 

I've noticed that our 4-legged friends seem to be much more appreciative of us than many of our 2-legged ones!

Best of luck with your enterprise! It's so good to hear something positive like this for a change. Our declining Western world desperately needs more small businesses like yours and less those damn blood-sucking big corporations. :drinks:

Just an after thought here.

As you are now the proprietor on a soon-to-be-prosperous petfood store, does this mean that Newcastle airport is no longer secure?
