Many retirees enjoy the freedom of retirement, the control over their own schedule and life. But some would like to still make some money. But then again, they want something that’s flexible, and something where maybe they could be their own boss. And they’d also like to make good money too. Is there such a career? There is. A courier service. Simply put, it’s the perfect retirement business.
Couriers perform a much-needed service for any community. They keep businesses and other companies running smoothly. So what does a courier do? A courier gets packages and other items from one place to another. Those flowers that need to be delivered to Mrs. Vitt. That legal document that needs to be signed and returned quickly. A courier makes those things happen. It’s an important service that everyone will need to use several times, if not on a regular basis. Many of us run errands everyday. We’re often in our cars, driving around town, picking up and dropping off items. That’s more or less what a courier does, but in a courier’s case, they get paid to do it. Good money too.
So how much money can you make when you start a courier service? The current national average is $36 an hour. So, say you only want to work eight hours a week. How much money could you make? $288. 15 hours a week? $540.
And did you know that as a courier you have total control over your schedule. You can work as little or as much as you’d like. Maybe you want to take Fridays off to play golf or catch up on reading. Maybe you prefer to only work in the morning. Great! Work when you want. You’ll certainly have the most luck if you can work between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., but really, it’s up to you. You’re the boss. You’re in charge.
Being a courier is perfect for someone that is determined, hardworking and great with people. Satisfied customers will call you time and time again to get their packages to where they need to be, on time and in perfect condition. You could be the all-star courier in your town before you know it.
Your new courier service business is your chance to enjoy your retirement, while still making some extra money. Put in as many hours as you want, and enjoy the benefits and freedom that come from owning your own courier business. Simply put, it’s the perfect retirement business.
