Back in 1987, Matthew Osborn was working two jobs and making less than $6 an hr at each. He was desperate for money because his family was growing. When he learned that in his surrounding neighborhoods no more than 15 miles away from his home there were about 100,000 dogs he started the pooper-scooper business in his hometown of Colombus, Ohio. Slowly but surely it took off and eventually he hired other employees and was serving about 700 regular customers. Years later after becoming a millionaire, he simply runs a directory of dog waste removal service around the country and has even written a manual on how to start your own pooper scooper business.
