I was just thinking that if I were inclined to be a total con artist, being a “pet psychic” would be an awesome gig. I know enough about animal handling and behavior to give some solid advice, I’m a decent enough writer to develop some extemporaneous fiction on the animal’s history based on known facts about current circumstances and behavior, and people will apparently shuck out stupid amounts of money over this business.
I just did a vendor event where one of my neighbors was a “pet psychic” who charged $60 for a thirty minute session. She was busy all day long!
So, Dopers, what shystery business do you have the skills for, had you a handful fewer scruples?
