Desire for Flexibility Drove Entrepreneur to Start Her Own Errand Business

Brooke Hopkins Tateossian started The Suburban Concierge to help people run errands, wrap presents, purge closets and more. "It's easier to explain what I don't do than what I do," the mother of three said of the home-based business she started six months ago. "I will not drive and I will not clean. I tell my clients they can do anything but not everything." She always tells her clients that everyone needs help and no one should feel bad about asking for it.

Brooke Hopkins Tateossian of Ramsey is a professional errand-runner.
People today juggle multiple community roles in addition to a job, spouse and children and they don't want to give anything up, she said.
"I love making their everything happen for them."
She has clients on monthly retainers that have their Amazon presents shipped directly to her home. "I wrap the gifts, buy cards and drop them off," she said. She also tries to anticipate her clients' needs. "I'm a good listener." She works on a monthly retainer or by the job and also offers packages on her website. "I try to be flexible. Clients are surprised by what I'll do." It was a desire for flexibility that drove Tateossian to start her own business. With three children 8-14, she was ready to leave her recruitment career and wanted more control over her daily life.

Her in-laws were the inspiration behind starting a business offering concierge services. "They drop off dinner twice a week, babysit. People were always jealous. It made me realize how much easier my life is because of them," she said.

Her clients are busy moms and executives. Lately, people have said they're planning to buy her services as a gift for people who are elderly or sick. "I love it and I get excited about it every morning when I get up. This is the best thing that's happened to me career-wise in a long time," she said.

Businesswoman Leaves Corporate World to Start Luxury Concierge Company

If you had the chance to start a luxury concierge service, would you take it? When this question was posed to Kara Candler, the answer was, at first, a reluctant "Yes." Now, as the owner of the successful Tick Tock Concierge, Kara knows that was absolutely the right thing to do.

But taking the jump was not easy...she had to overcome her fear of starting a business. With every startup, there is risk involved. Her biggest concern was leaving her corporate job that offered security and a steady paycheck. Determined not to give up on her desire to be self-employed, Kara recalled her grandfather's experience as an entrepreneur for a little extra encouragement.

"My grandfather was a big part of why I wanted to start my own company, carrying on his legacy is important."

Four years later, Kara's concierge business is still thriving and expanding, catering to businesses and individuals. More importantly, she's still doing exactly what she enjoys doing. A strong reminder that, in life, the biggest risks we face are often times the ones most worth taking!
