“I want to show my kids that hard work pays off.”
Having groomed dogs for more than 13 years, Alicia Jeffreys opened Shampooches Dog Grooming in October 2015. In 2017, after a veterinarian moved offices, Alicia jumped at the chance to have her own, larger location. Working 60-plus hours a week and rarely taking a salary, Alicia is seeking work/life balance, so she can see her daughters and spend more time with family.
Since she isn’t paying herself – but feels like she’s working herself to the bone – Alicia decided to apply for Small Business Revolution to get more recognition, find a way to take time off and finally start making money. Alicia Jeffreys’ doggie clients at Shampooches have definitely elevated the cuteness factor in this year’s cast.
