There are several advantages and perks to owning your own concierge business or errand service. Here are just a few reasons:
Make Your Own Lane – The personal and professional satisfaction of being your own boss.
Most entrepreneurs would agree that being self-employed and running a small business is consuming, risky and sometimes pretty stressful. But there’s nothing like creating your own lane and building your own enterprise from scratch. We are energized by our growth, independence and self-reliance! It’s a good feeling, isn’t it? Even when there is risk involved and anxiety surfaces, an entrepreneur understands the value of overcoming setbacks and obstacles along the way. Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur?

Running your own errand service kicks your creative engine into high gear.
Every day presents a new challenge with the unique requests you receive from your clients. Ever been asked to arrange for an 18-wheeler to be converted into a wedding chapel? It happens! Believe me, in this line of work, you discover your creativity, resourcefulness and talent in finding different ways to meet the needs and desires of your clients.
And if you’re the kind of creative who is stimulated by a challenge, this is the right business for you. In every type of business, there is always that one customer or client who pushes the envelope just to see what you can do. Concierges always come charged up and prepared to battle any obstacle!
You create bigger opportunities for yourself.
By nature of the business, you attract many people of different backgrounds and professions, whether they are customers or vendors you contract with to help you coordinate and provide services (i.e. car detailer or event planner). This broadens your database of resources, contacts, and clientele, which eventually also refer more clients back to you.
Owning a personal concierge / errand service can offer more advantages than increased income. For starters, you enhance your resume portfolio easily by 70%. How? By demonstrating your problem-solving talents to service your customers, you prove your value as a major asset to any employer.
Through your business, you provide a vast array of services to benefit your clients. Most of the time, you wear many hats – coordinator, manager, customer service, executive assistant, administrator and ambassador, just to name a few. But remember that each time you switch hats, you prove your ability to excel at multiple types of tasks. Potential employers place a premium on candidates who can switch gears at sudden notice, and do so gracefully. So, the next time you’re updating your resume, do not hesitate to include the abundant responsibility you carry not only as a business owner, but also as a pet caregiver or travel advisor and coordinator, or miracle worker!
You get paid to do what you love.
If you enjoy helping people reduce stress of modern daily living in and be more productive in their personal and professional lives, then you are making the right choice in owning or starting a concierge business. I can’t even tell you the countless times my clients have expressed sincere gratitude and appreciation for the simple luxury of saving them time! You really do make a difference in their lives. In time, you become an extension of your clientele’s personal and professional network – occasionally, even an addition to the family! It has been a truly rewarding experience for me. I feel so fortunate to have found a way to build personal and financial wealth doing something I enjoy.
Owning a Concierge Business or Errand Service or Lifestyle Management Company is never boring.
Many personal concierge businesses and lifestyle management companies are contracted by affluent individuals or families to provide first class world-class service on their estate. Often times the client will have the personal concierge travel with them to luxurious places around the world. You get to experience a lifestyle that you may not be able to afford on your own. And even better, get paid a handsome salary at the same time!
