The Chicago Tribune had a profile on a suburban man who got laid off after 25 years in the telecommunications industry.
He then tapped into the booming market for pet-related services by starting his own business for cleaning dog poop from people's yards.
Spring is his busiest time, because all the melting snow reveals months of poop.
His business is booming and he works as many as 85 hours a week and is thinking of hiring an assistant.
He made almost $75,000 last year.
