I’m Esta, owner of Furry Godmother and I have been an entrepreneur since I was in 1st grade. It started with Girl Scout cookies, then on to top-grossing lemonade stands to pay for family trips to Kings Island, becoming one of the original “bloggers,” writing summaries with my best friend about the latest Soap Opera news and selling them door to door to our neighbors. And this was before 4th grade. I guess you can say I was born to be an entrepreneur.
In 2010, in addition to my other work, I started helping friends with their pets when they traveled. I enjoyed time with their furry friends and they saved some cash. Fast forward to my ‘mini empire’, as I like to call it. So many people have been supportive of me and my journey as Furry Godmother, countless referrals and tons of positive feedback. It truly has been exciting to watch my dream grow into a reality over the past 12 years. It has not been an easy path, but I am proud of how hard work has actually paid off.
I am a total quote lover! I read them until I believe them, and it works. I would bet the proverbial farm on myself any day of the week. I have sacrificed a lot to get to where I am but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It brings me joy knowing that my company helps so many people each and everyday. I am most thankful that I have been able to be an example to my teenage daughter, as to what a strong and independent woman can accomplish.
I’m so grateful to my award winning team that supports me each day in the field. Without them, Furry Godmother could not continue to grow and provide love and service to our wonderful clients each day. It is quite remarkable to think how far we have come. I shed tears of gratitude weekly that I am able to make a living doing something I love. I do not take any of this for granted. I am constantly working on Furry Godmother, so that my team and I can continue to provide our clients with the pet services they love, trust, and rely on each and everyday.
