As my domestic status has changed over the past year, this idea no longer would applies to me, but here is another business idea I would have paid for.
Home Maker Inc – A service that would mimic many of the offerings of the good homemaker, solely in the care and maintenance of the home and retirement planning. There would be no actual in-person services rendered by the Homemaker Inc (heretoafter called HMI) just financial and long-term home matters. The business would largely be by mail, phone, and internet. The retirement and financial planning would be largely limited to enforcing Ramit Sethi’s I will Teach You To Be Rich book (which covers about 80% of what you need).
The home maintenance would consist of:
- Paying all utility bills (though the customer’s account), and notifying them of any deals (like on natural gas or the like) that come around. The customer would be given a monthly statement of the expenses.
- HMI would hold all warranties in a central and findable location, and handle all home repair services. HMI would also hold all insurance policies.
- HMI would schedule and arrange all home maintenance tasks (like annual servicing of appliances) that never actually get done.
That way the house could be maintained at limited expense, and things would actually get done. Just a thought.
