    Don’t forget getting 8 dogs a day every day at $60 is a fantasy. That $80k profit with zero rent is a bit of a fantasy. But hey at least you’re the boss that’s worth a lot

    I’m starting a mobile grooming business and all of your videos have helped so much! Thank you for this content:)

    Completely skipped over the taxes here… Its the taxes that’ll slay you

    That’s a little deceiving. No groomer can do one dog an hour for 8 hours. You should have rounded it down to every 2 hours.

    Thank you for the quick down and dirty! I truly believe that in 9 mins, you highlighted the important pieces in stoking the flames for future entrepreneurs. Keep up the great drive!

    Many thoughts on this, it seems optimistic. Grooming from your home is a huge tax on your personal and family life. Hard to keep it clean as part of your home (my mom is a dog groomer). Ideally you want a small storefront for quality of life. But that’s going to eat into those numbers. 8 dogs a day with people coming to your home is going to be insane as you’d have as much traffic as a hair salon in your driveway.

    One model is to wash and then cut each dog, but you’re better off hiring washer(s) while you just do the grooming. But that’s a cost as well. Plus insurance, and chemicals and such are way more a year than $1000. As others have said the 8 dogs every day is an aggressive number too.

    Good 101 concept, but I’d argue you’re going to make closer to 50-60k per year working from your own home – and that taking its toll on your home. With a store front you probably need employees and be able to do 10-20 dogs a day for it to be profitable

    This video is purely a fantasy. I been grooming since 2007 and have my own grooming business. Not every client tips $10 and not every groomer grooms 8 dogs a day .. if they do,,,,, it’s a accident waiting to happen or qualify is in jeopardy.. So this is purely a FANTASY
