This isn’t a very serious post, but just intrigued to hear your thoughts!
I’m a remote worker and single petsitter (full-time with Airbnb stays in between) - new to THS, but I’ve done plenty of housesits using other websites and word of mouth.
When I began petsitting, I reduced my working hours as I realised how much time it takes to organise sits/travel as well as the time spent caring for pets and homes. That’s not to say I never had longer working days with a cute sleepy pet by my side, but I’m certainly not working the same full-time hours I did when I was renting.
A friend called this ‘part-time’ and lazy. Eek! As someone who’s always been a hard worker, it made me feel a bit strange haha. I don’t have big savings, so I always make sure I work enough to keep my bank account stable or growing, but the animals come first for me. Plus I don’t want to get burnt out - especially as a single person without any additional support.
So it made me wonder… are other petsitters working full-time (40+hrs pw)? Or is it normal for petsitters to work reduced hours in their remote job?
If you’re a remote working petsitter, I’d love to hear what your ‘work week’ looks like.
