In your own words what do you do?
Years ago, I launched rottweilerlife.com website, to work from home with the help of 10 remote freelancers writers. Every day, I woke up and scavenged the Internet for compelling material to introduce to the websites. What started as an educational project is now bringing income, thanks to Google AdSense.
What led you to your current business?
I am a dog addict since I was 8 years old. During the first time when I began to use Facebook, I started to consider about making a fan page for people who loves Rottweiler and create a place where we could all engage in a sharing experience. I created the page and in less than 3 months the page reach to 200k fans. At this time I started to think about creating the website which I soon did. Soon the popularity for the website exceeded my expectations and it saw immense growth.
Could you walk us through your process of developing your business?
At first, it was a hobby. I had learned every things about dogs and soon had many people were asking me how to raise their dogs and changing their dogs’ behavior. So I started sharing my ideas with fans. And getting results. One day I decided to formalize the approach. I created a website that would ease them into giving them a chance to really get to know dogs and to understand their relationship with dogs. The first website went so well, that we decided to launch a business around it. The rest, so far, is history.
