eople always say they don't have enough hours in the day to do all that they
need to. This is especially so if the have highly demanding jobs that require
their attention for most of the day. That hardly leaves time for their family
let alone all the everyday errands that need to be done like taking the collecting
the dry cleaning, paying the bills, going to the post office and a thousand
and one other things. People like these either need more time... or a couple
more hands and legs. That's where you (or maybe your hands and legs!) come in.

Running an errands service means you will do all the 'other' stuff for your
busy clients. This job doesn't need much investment and experience, just time.
It's a great money maker for retired folk or students who need extra cash. If
you've only got one or two clients, it may be easy going but if you've got more
clients, then you've got to have good time management. If your clients have
errands that clash (time-wise) you'll need to prioritize and do your 'magic'!
That may involve running cross town from point A to point B in a flash. You
may find that driving a car may not be the best way to get around while doing
your job. The last thing you want is to get stuck in a jam while your client
is waiting impatiently for their dry-cleaning to arrive! A motorbike or bicycle
may be a better way to get around. It helps save costs too. You'll find clients
tend to give you repeat business when you're quick, efficient and honest. Good
customer service goes a long way to helping you make money in this business.
