Alright, I did it. I made the big announcement on my Facebook page that I am looking for funding to get the pet store open and running. I have all of the paperwork, it's just a matter of picking a location and getting stuff on the shelves now. Making this announcement is pretty big for me. I don't know how all of my friends and family will take this. I hope they're supportive. I'm really afraid of a backlash for asking for money to start, but I know there are plenty of businesses that start off crowdfunding websites, so here goes to another new adventure.
Beyond Pets also has a Facebook page here. Please feel free to like and share! Tweet about it, Pinterest it and help me to get the word out. There are some really neat rewards for donations of set amounts, but quantities are limited.
