Life is for living and enjoying every single moment. So when it comes to work it makes sense to do something you are passionate about, a career that inspires you and has you bounding out of bed eager to begin your day and provides you with the income and lifestyle you desire.
That is how our Aussie Pooch Mobile operators feel. In 2014 at our annual awards, we celebrated the success of our operators. Here are three of their stories.
Jayne Collinson – Gold Coast QLD
Jayne is fun, energetic, passionate and motivated in life and with the dogs she cares for. A smile never leaves her face. Commencing with Aussie Pooch Mobile in 2005, she has enjoyed washing and caring for 100’s and 1000’s of dogs. This is the sixth year in a row Jayne has taken out the award for most dogs washed. After nearly 10 years Jayne is well experienced in how to take extra special care of her customers and their dogs.
You may ask how?
Jayne says, “it’s ensuring that you care for your customers on a regular 1 – 4 weekly basis to meet the needs of their dogs and in how you organise your day. My customers understand that I treat their dog as if it was my own. I tell them, they are all my babies they just live with other people.
My business is not just a job, it is part of who I am. Becoming part of The Aussie Pooch Mobile family is the best decision I have ever made.” Says Jayne.
Carey Mustow – Nowra NSW
Before purchasing a new franchise on the NSW South Coast, Carey owned and operated a smash repair business in Nowra. Carey, commenced in July 2013 with Aussie Pooch and has become one of the fastest growing start-up franchises in Aussie Pooch Mobile history!
Carey said “I had always heard the analogy… ‘If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life’, I never believed this could be true, until… I joined Aussie Pooch. Every day just gets better. I love being out and about working with dogs and seeing and being part of the world, instead of being stuck in a workshop and office.”
Emily Slevin – Scarborough WA
Emily worked in tourism taking backpackers around Australia, before looking for something to do that would allow her a more balanced lifestyle. In 2010 Emily joined Aussie Pooch. Along the way Emily has built up and split off a piece of her territory to allow another passionate dog lover to join the team and in 2012 Emily took on a representative to allow her to take some time out to spend with her new baby, Charli.
Emily says, “I chose Aussie Pooch as I really related to the companies values and work ethic ‘we care’ and loved the way the business was run. I also felt very comfortable and happy with the support and help I received when I started and still receive now well down the track.
I love that I have a successful business that gets me hanging out with gorgeous doggies all day, which also gives me the lifestyle balance I want, so I can spend more time with my family”.
Jayne, Carey and Emily all agree, “It is such a great feeling to be recognised for your success and to know that you’re running a successful business. The awards give us a great feeling of achievement”.
