Dave’s story shows that really, you can make a business out of anything.
Dave started a dog waste clean-up service, in 2004 when he decided he was burned out on his career. He read a story about a woman who’d done a similar thing, and the idea clicked. It combined three things that he loved: dogs, the outdoors, and working on his own.
While his friends originally gave him a hard time about his new line of work, Dave says that they eventually came around.
Business is good and it helped Dave to step away from a career that he said was becoming too stressful. He’s found that he can relax more when he acts as his own employer, performing a task others aren’t very willing to do themselves.
Self-employment carries all kinds of benefits, and if Dave can pick up dog feces for a living, then there’s certainly something out there for you. There are all kinds of tasks and chores that others may not enjoy doing, but need to be done.
