Personal Service (definition): 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 in Toronto 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 have owned HandyAnde.com as my own personal concierge service and am about to change it to promote other women who want to earn income by providing personal services to their client.

Some of the information I provide in my Personal Services Business seminar notes:

  • A list of ideas for personal services you could provide
  • Forms of business
  • Owner benefits: what do you want this business to do for you?
  • Define your services
  • Starting Up
  • Tools of the trade: What will you need?
  • Methods: What problems will you solve?
  • Pricing: How will you price your services?
  • Payment: How will you collect payment?
  • Clients: Who will your clients be?
  • Competition: Who's doing what you do?
  • Promotion: How will people learn about your service?
  • Performing your service: What happens?
  • Keeping clients: How do you keep them coming back?
  • Hiring staff: How do you find the people to be "you"?
  • Spinoffs: What's next?
  • Ethics and issues: What's important?
