I posted this in the work/employment section but thought I would post it here as well.........

I am looking to start an errand/concierge business to target the busy working people as well as the retired and elderly that need help.
Do you know anyone that already does this type of work?
or have you used a service like this?

Thanks!

I have heard of a few people that do this in Minnesota. I would think in a larger city that it would be well received. I think you would be smart to get involved in a business networking group of some kind to get your name out there-as well as networking with busy professionals that would probably use your service.

That's a good idea, especially being I don't really know anyone where I currently live, I have 2 groups in mind that I could join. Luckily I think the population in my city should be big enough to support this type of business but like you said it's just getting your name out there.
