Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in pet care but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Anna Zege, co-founder of GROOMIT, located in New York, NY, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are a platform similar to Uber that connects dog groomers and dog owners. All the groomers are fully vetted.

Tell us about yourself

I am absolutely in love with animals and passionate about making their lives better. It’s so much less stressful for them to be groomed in their own environment.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Knowing I’m making a difference and adding value for dog groomers ( higher wages), pets( convenience and ease), and pet parents (also convenience and reliability, and consistency).

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The different unpredictable obstacles you can never imagine. From balancing customers and groomers to hiring new quality groomers.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Make sure you’re doing it because you’re passionate and add value, not just for the money!

Where can people find you and your business?
