Did I achieve what I originally set out to make? Sort of. I had planned to do more walks but things don’t always turn out as planned. But I did make a dog walking business which I think is still a pretty good effort considering how long I’ve wanted to do it for.
A challenge I experienced was getting business because no matter how many flyers we printed out, people weren’t getting the message. Also most of the houses in my are have a ‘No advertising’ sticker on their letter box. A success was getting my first walk. It was relief to know something was happening and that effort hadn’t been wasted.
Overcoming challenges is hard. Especially with a business, even if it’s a school project small business, it’s hard to overcome. This is because you can’t take money out of peoples pockets and do work for them without consent. Because that’s stealing. So I honestly don’t know how I overcame those challenges.
If I was to continue with this project I would do more and be more organised. Being more organised would to buy printer ink and to make sure that the flyers would print properly because I nearly had a mental breakdown with my printers issues. And by do more I mean I would promote more and get out more.
