Have you seen the commercials for Care.com? Well I have about 100 times. I finally decided to check it out. And what do you know it's actually pretty cool! I have received a few jobs through the website. There are actually many websites out there just for people looking for child care. At first I thought this might be a little weird, you know having strangers watch your kids. And there was one who didn't even need to meet me before I babysat their kids....I was a little nervous about what the family would be like. But it all turned out ok!
I want to increase my client base if you will. I really want to have something planned for every weekend. Weekend babysitting is super easy since usually half the time the kids are sleeping! And it's nice quick money. Most importantly I am a big fan of having my job be to play with kids. I am kicking around the idea of printing business cards that I could hand out to people I regularly work for. This would be something tangible they could give to friends and possibly result in more business then just word of mouth. I'm not sure if people would think it was dumb and not really use it though.
I know not too many people read this but if you do...what do you think of a babysitting business card...be honest!
