This New Yorker makes Rs 1 million from "dog walking"; details
New Delhi: As a "dog walker," 34-year-old Michael Joseph of Brooklyn, New York, earns a staggering Rs 1 crore annually. He used to make Rs 30 lakh a year as a full-time teacher, which is interesting. But now that he is doing what he loves, he not only makes a solid living but also bought a home in Middletown, New Jersey, a vehicle, and a vacation to Disneyland for his family. He has also saved Rs 16 lakh for his 18-year-old child.
Michael said in an interview that he felt fortunate to have this position. He said that he began dog walking as a side job in 2019 to make some additional money. He used to walk his black Labrador, Willy, around Prospect Park, and other dog owners would remark on how well-behaved his canine companion was. He was sometimes asked whether he was willing to work as a dog trainer, and he never objected.
He launched his own company, Parkside Pups, in July 2019. He had earned Rs. 28.56 lakh towards the end of the year. He received enough customers after setting a $20 price for a 30-minute stroll. He began off with a profit of Rs 1 crore in little over a year.
Michael claims he couldn't be happier to run his own company. In fact, he has now even created an app for his company via which he wants to expand and recruit more staff.
