Amanda – ASSURED HOME AND PET CARE
WHAT DO YOU MAKE/SELL? TELL US ABOUT YO’ SELF.
We are an in-home pet sitting agency – providing pet sitters to Calgary, Cochrane and the Bow Valley!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
Since May 2010
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I was taking care of pets for lots of friends and family members, and decided, hey! I can make a business out of this! Since then, we have grown to a team of over 20 pet sitters.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
I am inspired by all the awesome animals we get to care for and by all of their super loving parents!
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
My dream would be to spread our agency of pet sitters beyond our local area; and to include a wide variety of pet services, such as dog walkers, groomers, accessory-makers, etc.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?
My favourite platform is Instagram because I get to spend time every day just looking at all of our city’s super cute pets and pet products! I also love to share pictures of our clients’ pets with the insta world!
HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
When things go wrong and I take a breath, say a few curse words to myself (or to my husband!), and then figure out how to solve the problem.
WHAT’S ONE THING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU? GIVE US AN INTERESTING FACT!
I am currently running the business from a van while I travel around North America on my year-long honeymoon! #vanlife
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
To fly. I like the idea of the freedom of flight and getting to see our beautiful world from a totally different perspective!
