How Far Would You Go To Have Your Own Business?

I found this article this morning on Yahoo! News about John Darrigo, owner and operator of the Dog-Gone-It Pet Waste Removal Service in New Hampshire.

Doing a search on Google you find a ton of businesses just like this with names like DoGPiLe Patrol, PoopButler, and MineSweepers.

I’m not sure this is a business that I would want to be in (my solution would be to not have a dog if I had the voting power), but after thinking about it for a bit, I see two big strengths about this line of business. The first is that it is definitely a job that not many people enjoy doing, and therefore if you find customers like me, you could make a killing. Secondly, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of clever names you could come up with for a company which performs these activities.

Luckily, I’ve found this article so that I can point our kids over to it. Now we can just say that picking up the yard is prep for their future rather than just having to throw out a “because I said so”.
