Let’s say you wanted to start a business, but you didn’t know what type of small business to start. You realize that our economy is in a recession, and things just aren’t doing too well. You also realize that even though you have some job skills, the chances of you getting a good job as an employee somewhere are next to nil. So maybe you should start your own business, and if you do I have a little advice for you; try to find something you can do that you have passion for. Try to find something to do that you like to do. Why not ask yourself; “what do I like to do?” And then go from there.
The other day, I was at Starbucks I asked someone what their favorite thing to do was. They told me they like to help save people money. And that they love that show on TV with a lady that tells everyone how to reduce their expenses and get out of debt, ditch their credit cards, and start saving money. You have probably heard of the Suzy Orman show. They said they might like to do something like that. Now then, after they left, I wonder what type of business they could start. In thinking about this I came up with;
Insurance Marketing Consultant
What they could do would be to give seminars on how to save money on insurance. The average American is spending 35% on insurance more than they need to. Consider if you will people have homeowners insurance, car insurance, healthcare insurance, and a myriad of other types of insurances depending on what they do for a living, and what sorts of activities they are involved in, in their own personal human endeavors. Generally, they are paying too much, but they don’t even know it.
It would be easy to give group instruction to folks like this, and then refer them to those insurance companies which specialized or marketed those insurance products. They might even find themselves putting on these seminars for specific insurance agencies, as long as they follow the rules and regulations within the industry. In other words, they would be getting paid by the customer for their consulting, and perhaps they might get paid by insurance agents for helping them do marketing and getting sales leads.
Not all states allow these things, because it is a heavily regulated industry, but there are all sorts of things people can do to make money in this venue. And if you like to save people money, this might be something to look into. And once you start there, you might be able to save people money with all sorts of other things such as buying a car, getting a home loan, starting a business, and what have you.
Please consider all this if you’re thinking about starting your own small business and if you like to save other people money. Making money by saving people money, now that’s a great idea.
