Ben Fidden, a former training manager, had dreamt of setting up his own business for years. A business that would take him away from the corporate world and indulge his love of pets, gardening and home.

Returning from a recent holiday he found his cat highly stressed, so he began to look for an alternative to leaving his cat at a friend’s place. He googled his problem, trying to find another way for his cat to be looked after, and came across My Home Watch. 

His one search solved two problems, when he found that not only could My Home Watch look after his cat, but could also give him the business opportunity he dreamed of. His own business as a My Home Watch franchise owner. The die was cast and rest is history.

My Home Watch provides home checks, property services, in-home pet visits, boat watch services, mail collection, indoor and outdoor garden watering, commercial watering, grocery services, key hold services, lawns and gardeners, cleaners, pool maintenance, open house day service, open house ready service, moving / end of lease service, property checks and other household services for:-

• Holidaymakers
• Frequent Travelers
• Business Travelers

• Boat Owners
• Pet Owners
• Real Estate Agents
• Property Managers
• Airbnb, Holiday Home Care
• Investment Properties
• Commercial Properties

All  business owners are trained & trusted professionals and hold national Police Clearances, are licensed and are fully insured.

So if you’re away for a weekend, for business or on the trip of a lifetime, or have an Airbnb property or you’re selling your home, Home Watch can assist you, without you having to rely on family, friends or neighbours.

Ben’s decision has paid off. He now has flexible hours and more opportunity to fit in personal events, and he’s also doing what he loves providing a Home Care service in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. 

It’s a dream come true and as Ben says “What stands out is it is a challenge, and that’s why I wanted to have my own business. It’s very different to most careers. You can choose how to do it, and it’s very rewarding.”
