Start Your Own Senior Services Business Review Feb 23, 2007
I felt that this book contained valuable basic information that would get you on the road to starting a senior services business. This book gave a number of ideas; such as daycare, concierge, and relocation services, and explained them in detail.
I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to gain a basic understanding of the types of senior-oriented businesses and what is entailed when trying to start one up.
Vague but informative Feb 13, 2007
The book was full of a lot of good senior business ideas. However it was kind of vague on the (how-to) business information.
Highly recommended for anyone considering setting up in the field. Dec 9, 2006
Sponsored by Entrepreneur Magazine, Start Your Own Senior Services Business: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Success is a no-nonsense source of ideas and practical strategies for getting a potentially lucrative business up and running, especially in the modern era of aging baby boomers. In addition to general advice for serving seniors, running a senior care service and developing one's plan, chapters look in-depth at operating an adult day-care service, relocation service, home care and home health-care service, concierge service, transportation service, and travel service. The final portion of Start Your Own Senior Services Business is packed heavily with tips, tricks, techniques, and vital tidbits for everything from how to set up a dependable team to financial matters to when things go wrong. Perhaps the most valuable piece of advice is the warning not to take every job offered, especially not ones that are beyond one's technical skills or expertise - better to refer those to another, who may well return the favor in the future. Highly recommended for anyone considering setting up in the field.
