It started at Chantilly Pet Expo when the Pawpons folks approached my booth and asked if I wanted to be a merchant on their new site. Pawpons is like Groupon, but specifically for the pet lover community. If you haven’t noticed, deals have proliferated all over the internet and landed with a bang in my email box. Over and over, deal after deal. But as my whole world pretty much revolves around dogs, there’s not much else I need to be happy. That’s not really true, but it sounds nice and helps me make my point. Which is….Pawpons is going to be the best thing to hit the pet community….offering daily deals AND giving back to animal rescue organizations. So, I was super excited to be a new merchant once the site is launched any week now, and we decided to meet at my home office to work together on some projects. Next thing I knew, it was like the CIA had taken space at my kitchen table. Carrie, our IT expert, Marie, the brainchild of Pawpons and rescue afficionado, and Linda, the event and merchant organizer among many other things. After a fast session of figuring out how we could work together on numerous events and planning some marketing together, we stood to have lunch. Why would you want to sit for lunch, after sitting and working all day? My 3 new friends shared part of each of their huge turkey sandwiches and informed me of the quote, “things always taste better when shared.”
Working together on Sunday at the March for the Animals and venturing into events almost every weekend together, I want to say that things seem to work better when shared too. Check out my new friends at www.pawpons.com and see for yourself.
