Walking Dogs in Baltimore, Year Two!

27 Jun

Though it took some time to gain our footing in a new locale, Just Walk's Baltimore branch is now well into its second year. Growth has been steady and has proven to accelerate exponentially over time. Right now, we're in the process of bringing on yet another collective member and we really couldn't be more excited.

All of us were dogwalkers well before Just Walk came into the world, so it's very likely that we would all be working our same jobs no matter what the circumstance. The fact that we have been able to turn simple jobs into meaningful careers as part of real project with political ramifications means that all the sweat and insomnia have been made with their while.

The last year hasn't simply centered itself around expanding our client base and paying ourselves a bit more each month, but also around constantly refining our model, so that the project becomes not only a sustainable source of income for all of our collective members, but also an enduring example of the benefits of worker self-management.

Even in the few short years that Just Walk has been in existence, we have worked tirelessly to find and weed out weaknesses in our model, while also putting to use and expanding upon every small success. Even the easiest part of the job, the part where we actually get to walk the dogs, is one that we're constantly trying to find ways to improve.

From animal CPR certification, to expanding our formal training skills, all the way to our pie-in-the-sky dreams about what the project might someday be, we are constantly trying to make our services, our jobs and our lives better and better.

As we now wade into Spring, one that promises to be filled with new challenges for all of us, both as workers and activists, we hope that the work we love continues to sustain us in new and fascinating ways. This new website and blog that you're reading right now are hopefully the first steps in that direction. If nothing else, you can certainly count on the reliable service that we pride ourselves on. But, with so much change (social, political, economic) on the horizon, we think it's a safe bet that we'll be evolving more than ever before. We hope you'll join us as we walk down roads old and new.

    Dieting will be the nastiest word inside the world of, well, dieting.
    Because there is absolutely no scientific proof that it will help
    burn off your fat, you must be the judge of regardless of whether the
    truth is any actual advantages from employing this natural
    remedy. Even further analysis brings forth one more conclusion the
    way to obtain benefits lies within the additional nutrients and vitamins which can be
    consumed in raw foods, instead of the enzymes or plants at all.

    The Vi - Salus is not in the run ofpublicity like the other health products that excites the people and ready togo,
     but that die away in few weeks because they are physically very difficult tokeep up.

    What does this growing trend represent to the average person, and how does it relate to the current state of the economy.

    and delivers some wonderful results.
