How to Start a Concierge Business
Starting your own business in any industry is never as simple as it seems. Launching a concierge service is no exception. Little things as simple as defining the service to answering service calls appear to be easy, almost effortless. Unfortunately, many startups have come and gone because they held that perspective…that this business is as “easy as 1-2-3.” Startups that would have flourished had they taken just a little more precaution and time for preparation were retired prematurely.
The ebook Keys to Starting and Operating a Successful Concierge Service helps concierge and errand service owners map out a plan to provide and enhance services. Entrepreneurs in search of a sound, home-based business idea will find ways to create unique opportunities in this thriving industry.

Former Snapchat Exec Launches Concierge Service
Emily White, the former No. 2 exec at Snapchat and Instagram, has a new startup in Los Angeles aimed at providing high-end "concierge" services for busy families, according to Fortune's Dan Primack.
The startup, called Mave, was described by a source to Fortune as serving as the "chief of staff for your household."
Little else is known about Mave right now. The company has a website, but the site says it's currently an invite-only beta, and that there's a waitlist.
The new service would mark an intriguing new chapter for White, following her sudden departure from Snapchat in 2015 after only 16 months at the company. White is among the internet industry's most respected executives, having worked closely with Sheryl Sandberg and later overseeing Instagram's effort to build an advertising business.
