What a crazy place to find myself.
I would have never thought to have got into the poop scooping business if it hadn’t been for that one – crazy – out of the blue thought – and a little too much time on my hands – day. Suddenly, I found myself registering a business and getting an ABN and before I knew it I was proud owner of Scoop Scoop le Poop!
A number of chance coincidences saw me make several unscheduled media appearances – where I was completely unprepared but willing to give my little business the exposure it deserved.
It turns out I love my little scooping business and take the job of scooping the poop quite seriously. There is no time for looking about when I am scooping. It is head down, trowel at the ready and concentration on – I don’t really want to step in it! But if that is the worst consequence of my day – I am a pretty lucky person.
Why now, why become a poop scooper at 37? Well it was pretty simple. I do have another job which is super – but it requires me to sit at a desk. You see, I love being outdoors and working for myself has been fantastic so it provides the balance I seek. I also love all the thinking I get to do while searching for the land mines – amazing what ideas pop into my head.
I have often thought about what questions I would be asked in an interview (let’s say for Business Insider) and what answers I would give. Next post, I will explore some of those great Q’s and A’s with you all.
Til then, try not to step in it – if you, want someone to pick it up for you, get in contact.
