In the past, these businesses have focused on people who are just too busy to do their own shopping and/or errands, but a whole new market has developed of people who are incapable of doing these things themselves or just find it a whole lot easier to have someone else do them. There's a growing need for these services by seniors and shut-ins.
As for shopping, the holiday/Christmas season can be a real moneymaker for you who wouldn't like to turn over their gift list and just have it magically turned into presents by someone else?
Pros: If you love to shop, this home based business could be a dream come true for you.
Cons: You might end up spending a lot of time sitting in traffic; you'll definitely be spending a lot of time driving. That's a pro or a con depending on your point of view.
What You Need to Get Started With This Home Based Business Idea:
- A good - excellent vehicle.
- Excellent local knowledge (of routes, shops, etc.)
