Kristin - MUSINGSKristin’s Musings:

Paul Mann is wonderful. I contacted him a few months ago about speaking at the conference, and he suggested we discuss it in person since we live in same county. I agreed, so we met at a nearby coffee shop a few days later. I was really impressed with him: Paul is a rare blend of super smart, silly, and playful. I encouraged many of the speakers to make funny faces at me prior to recording their interviews, so we could loosen up, laugh, and relax a bit before going “on air.” I have to say: Paul’s faces were the most outrageous! (Too bad they aren’t on this video.) The reason I chose him for this particular segment is because I’ve worked with a lot of his franchisees who had great things to say about the Fetch! Pet Care franchise.

    Hi pet business owners,

    Have you been thinking about franchising your business or perhaps about buying into a dog service franchise (becoming a franchisee)? What insights did you get about that as a result of watching today’s speaker Paul Mann? I’d love to know. Post down here and let me know.

    Hi Paul,
    We have been running a pet sitting business in Canada for twelve years.; do you offer franchises in Canada. If so, what kind of an investment are we looking at?
