Meet Jeanie Berman of GroomingdalesExpress

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeanie Berman.

Jeanie, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
In 1998 I was a pioneer for the mobile grooming business. I flew to Arizona to purchase a 1973 grooming van. When driving it to O.C. I put a rod through the engine. I had the van towed and I then spent the night in Palm Springs. The next morning, I rented a flatbed truck and brought the van to O.C. I put a new engine in the van. I then started working I would make enough to continue to upgrade the van and my equipment all so had the van painted the van white. (it was orange) I had one small stand up dryer at that time. I continued to ad equipment. I delivered flyers door to door every week while building my business. A lot of things happened along the way. I never gave up! Today I have a beautiful van I’m booked a year ahead still grooming for some of the same clients I started with on their second and third sets of pets. I never gave up. I believe you can do anything if you put your mind to it and want it bad enough.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Running out of funds I took a job at 4 A.M. washing dogs at a boarding kennel for 8 A.M. pickup then would start grooming for my business after that each day.

I had many van issues over the years.

Today I own my beautiful 90 thousand dollar van and all the equipment.
