When you’re tired of being on craigslist, get a pet
Posted June 05, 2018 05:24:21 When you can’t wait to put a little time in, take advantage of the online pet marketplace.
And that’s where Wendy Peters comes in.
She started working at Craigslist a few years ago and has become one of the city’s most popular and well-known pet sellers.
She says the marketplace has been the biggest help she’s had during her time at the business.
“It’s been an amazing experience,” she said.
Peters has been selling pets since 2013.
She began selling on Craigslist as an online pet buyer and seller.
She says her passion for pets has taken her from the couch to her bedroom.
“I like to think of myself as a really compassionate person,” she says.
“I’m very much a work in progress.
I just started in the pet industry.”
She said when she first started her online business she was very young and naive about how things work online.
“The first few months I wasn’t paying much attention,” she recalled.
“Then I started working on the site and I was working really hard.
And I started to see how easy it was to sell my stuff.
It was a pretty big jump.
I think it’s something that I have to do for myself.”
She says she’s happy to see that now that she’s an established online pet seller, she’s able to continue to grow her business.
She estimates she’s sold more than $1 million worth of pet items online since opening up in 2013.
But it’s not all roses.
While Peters says she has a strong reputation for her work, there are still things she would like to improve on.
“The most important thing is that I really do want people to feel comfortable and that I take them seriously,” she explained.
“There are still some things that I would like for it to be more professional, like the way that I deal with my customers.
I’m not always comfortable with that.”
Peters says she wants to create a safe and inviting environment for customers to shop.
“If you’re not a dog person, there is a lot of stuff you can do,” she added.
“Just take a little bit of time to make sure that you are respectful and professional and that you make your money back.”
