The lucky children in Mrs. Hassenger’s 4th grade class at Brown Elementary in St. Joseph, Michigan, have no idea what a superstar entrepreneur their teacher is.
Sarah Hassenger launched her home-based business, Four Black Paws, in 2010, working after school and on weekends to hand-sew the doggie bow ties and related accessories.
Since host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart first spoke with Sarah in April 2016, her line has expanded dramatically to include an organic collection; dog treats, toys and shampoo; and even t-shirts, hats, headbands, and scrunchies for her loyal two-legged followers.
Sarah Hassenger continues to demonstrate that solopreneurs can succeed even in a dog-eat-dog world.
While Dean is on book leave, we hope you’ll enjoy this Best of Monday Morning Radio re-airing.
