Make Money With Your Cell Phone

Ok, folks, let's get this gravy train rolling! Why is this a cheap startup business? Because we are going to start by making money from your cell phone and work from home! So, What is this business I'm talking about? Roadside Assistance of course! I know your thinking "how in the hell am I going to make money from my phone doing Roadside? I don't even know how to change a tire!" Well, the truth is you don't have to do any physical labor at all to be successful in this field and I'm going to show you how! The business plan I'm about to lay out for you is very versatile as well. You really have three options on how you want to run it because you are your own boss and you call the shots.
- You are a stay at home mom or dad and need your freedom and run the business from home without getting your hands dirty. ( I will get into more detail on this in my next post )
- You are hands-on and run every call yourself and are in the field every day busting your butt
- You pick and choose which jobs you take and the jobs you cant get to you subcontract them out to someone else and you take a small cut from each job they complete. ( this was the route I took)
So now your thinking " how is this a low-cost start-up business if I have to buy a tow truck and pay for expensive tools and hire people?!? " Well when I first started out I had a choice of the services I wanted to offer and I can tell you that towing vehicles all day was not something I wanted to tackle. I like to keep things simple around here, so I chose to strictly do soft services only. Which is, light-duty tire changes, fuel deliveries, jump starts and vehicle lockouts. I also didn't want to pay a lot for gas running around in a truck so I ran roadside calls out of a honda civic and all my tools were in the trunk! Now the beauty of this is you don't have to get out in the field at all if you don't want to. There are plenty of days when I don't feel like getting out there so instead I choose to sit at home and dispatch my drivers while I eat pizza and watch T.V.
Now that I have your hamster wheel turning a little bit, stay tuned in to my blog and we will go over the following: Dispatching the jobs, tools needed (not required to succeed), the true cost of the startup, insurance, training on being an emergency locksmith for home and auto, and subcontracting well qualified 1099 workers to keep your new business ruining smoothly while you enjoy your sons t-ball game.
