We had the good fortune of connecting with Teyana Benson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Teyana, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my brand is passion. When you have a passion for what you do, you cant be defected. When you start a brand, there will be many trying times, but me knowing this is my passion I always have faith that it will be successful.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I call myself a Dog Bath Specialist, I specialize in keeping dog skin and coat healthy. I’ve always been known as the dog lady. I have a passion for animals other cant compete with!

I’m most proud of building and running a successful small business that’s convenient for pet owner. Being able to provide a service that helps pet owners keep their fur babies skin healthy and clean has been such a joy.

I landed myself as an insurance adjuster for six years. I was working this job to make ends meet but always had in mind that my passion was to work with animals. I applied for several jobs in the veterinary field but never received calls back. During 2019 Pandemic is when I realized my passion will lead me to my dream career. I stepped out on faith and started my own Doggy Mobile Bath company.

Transitioning from a 9-5 to an entrepreneur is an eye-opening transition. There will be many obstacles to face, it is not easy to build a successful brand. I’ve always look at the positive side of every downfall and keep faith, consistency, and determination on my mind.

I have learned many lessons along the way. Two of my most important lessons is to stay consistent and never let anything make you quit.
