019: 1-800 Pet Meds Founder Interview with Lynda Mariano – Part 2 -

Welcome back to part two of an amazing interview. Once again, the incomparable Wendy Stevens has gotten Linda Mariano, a founder of the brilliant company 1-800-petmeds, to take time out of her busy schedule and dig even deeper into her past and into the founding of this great company. Linda takes us back to growing up in a small town, and explains how she left the farm life to create her very own company. She felt she never fit into the farm life, and always wanted more- and that’s exactly what she got. She moved to the very southern tip of Florida, and realized that she had to make something happen.

Linda is the epitome of a mover and shaker. She is a great example to look at and realize, you can’t sit around and wait for something to happen to you. She left home, had a brilliant idea, and started her own company. Her dogs were her inspiration for her company, when she realized she didn’t want to have to lug them into the veterinarian’s office, every time they needed their medication. There was a clear need in the marketplace for convenient, affordable pet medication and she filled that need.
