Start Your Own Personal Services Business (seminar notes), $19
Andrea Reynolds, owner of multiple personal service businesses

Personal Service: a chore, errand or task that people want or wish to delegate to someone who can do it better, faster, or less expensively; because of limited time, energy or know-how.

I taught this class at the Learning Annex after realizing I'd started dozens of personal services businesses in my life. In college, for extra money I cut hair and did garment mending and alterations for my dorm-mates. In addition to this service, I have owned a bed and breakfast, crisis advice service and a speaker promotion service which I started in a second bedroom. I currently own a personal concierge service and home staging service.

Some of the information I provide in my Personal Services Business seminar notes:
• List of ideas for personal services you could provide
