…in my opinion, I think it can be easier for someone who has no aquarium experience to learn this business – than it is for someone who already has their own aquarium.
Why? I sometimes have to change their way of thinking concerning aquariums. They may already have their favorite fish or cleaning methods, but it can be a little different when you’re maintaining aquariums as a business. At least to do it efficiently.
If you’re worried that you can’t do this because you have never owned an aquarium before…
rest assured that you can!
Plus, you’ll gain a new hobby in the process.
How did I get started in this business?
I had an aquarium for a couple of years in the early 90’s before I started working for a friend who had just began an aquarium maintenance business. We both worked for Walmart and we would clean aquariums during our lunch break. We only had 4 or 5 accounts back then but it would bring in a few hundred dollars each month. I ended up buying the business from him a year later but it didn’t really go anywhere because I didn’t have much business experience. I ended up just using it to fuel my aquarium hobby.
No one was there to teach me anything about it. The internet was still just a novelty, so there was not any resources to learn from. If fact, it took EIGHT years before I realized the potential of this business and learned how to grow it.
I did all of this by trial and error! But I did it! I figured out some of the most profitable ways to operate this business and come to find out…they’re also some of the simplest! My business has grossed well over a million dollars* since then and has provided a good income for me and my family, plus I got to quit my job and spend a lot more time with them than if I would have stayed at my 9-5.
I understand what it’s like to be unsure about a new venture, but you can have confidence that this course will help you get started and give you the basic tools to succeed.
Whether you’re looking to just make a few extra dollars on the side or even grow it into a full time career, an Aquarium Maintenance Business can be a fun and interesting way to do just that!
