Default Gone to the dogs

Hello Everyone,

I found this forum this morning and think it is a great resource for small business owners.

I started Greyt Inspirations 1 year ago this month. I started with a few pet related products but soon found that the dog collars were my best seller. I now concentrate on the dog collars primarily but I do have plans to diversify in the near future.
I specialize in personalized dog collars, but I create a variety of other designer collars too.

When I started the business, I was working out of the home 3-days per week. We have since moved to a new location due to my husbands job, and now I am able to concentrate more on growing my business. To supplement my husbands income, since my business does not generate any real income yet, I work from home doing contract/freelance work such as web content writing, proofreading, search engine optimization for websites, upgrading websites, and building websites. I enjoy the fact that I am able to keep "my hand" in with web work.

I live with my husband, our youngest son (our oldest son chose to stay in our previous location when we moved), our 5 dogs and canary.
Our dogs were and remain my inspiration for the business, and I love the fact that I am finally able to stay at home and spend more time with our son and the dogs.

Hi Robert, I have 3 greyhounds (ex-racers from Florida), and 2 poodles. The poodles are the oldest, 16 and 11; and the greyhounds are 9, 8, and 5 years old.
