Oct 27, 2023

This weeks guest is the marvellous Mary Oquendo, who is helping to raise standards in the pet industry through her Pawsitive Educational Training platform. 

Mary was born and grew up in Yonkers with her three brothers. She went to high school, dropped out of college got pregnant and married at a very young age. 

She was a stay at home mom for a long time, until she started working as a bather at a local Petco. 2 days into the role, she had the opportunity to train to be a groomer, which she grabbed with both hands. 

18 months later Mary was ready to branch out on her own and started her Pawsitively Pretty Mobile Grooming business. 

Mary set herself up for success by investing in business coaches from day one. This led to fast growth of her business, and she had a full diary within 6 months. One year in she was firing bad clients and building a business she loved, and Mary shares some awesome advice about how she trained her clients to fit in with HER work schedule. 

This business ran until around 4 years ago, and since then she's been running Pawsitive Educational Training, an online training platform that provides online resources that help groomers and other pet services providors.
