For over 20 years I’ve worked for other people, marketing a diverse array of products and services for a diverse group of companies such as publishing, equipment leasing, insurance, durable goods, and healthcare. I had my share of successes, but I wasn’t very happy with my so-called career. Simply, I wanted my own business and I wanted to be my own boss.
Eventually, I had more than enough of the nonsense we all face everyday in Corporate America. So, I made a promise to myself and my family that I would start a small business – not caring much what it was as long as it was mine.
Within the year (1993), I started my own small business headquartered from home, which subsequently turned the table on a company downsizing. During this business-building phase, I kept explicit, comprehensive notes on my experiences starting and operating this business, and from this “blueprint,” I decided to write a “How-To” manual.
By 1996 I completed “How To Start And Operate An Errand Service,” which, thankfully, was well-received and became the premier guidebook on this subject – helping women and men, young and not so young – start a full or part-time errand business. This How-To book was profiled: in national business magazines… on TV… on numerous web sites… and by other small business book authors. It eventually led to a revised 2nd edition in 2001, and other popular How-To guidebooks and manuals.
After many years of trying, I was finally doing what I wanted. I was running a successful small business from home (an errand business), and writing How-To books showing others how they can do the same.
