Businesses That Help Others: 4 Sought-after Services To Offer

Beyond the desire to run a successful business that provides for our families and sets us up for a brighter future, many of us prioritize opportunities that also improve the lives of our customers and communities. Here are some industries and business models that do just that.



The services a trusted handyman provides are worth their weight in gold for homeowners from various backgrounds. Companies that focus on establishing and maintaining ongoing relationships with their customers will be able to build their business through repeat revenue and client referrals.


Home Repair Technician

Many homeowners lack the time, tools,  or know-how required to perform electrical work, drywall repair, plumbing fixes, and other regular maintenance tasks around the house, so  they seek assistance from reputable local businesses. Serving as a one-stop resource for customers’ home repair needs by providing a wide variety of handyman services positions you as a vital business no matter the time of year.



There is almost no better feeling than a clean and tidy home. Entrusting the cleanliness of  your home to well-trained and trustworthy professionals is more important than ever to keep your families safe and healthy considering the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies that provide high-quality, customizable cleaning services are positioned to benefit from both repeat business and lasting relationships with the families they serve.



More than 82 percent of seniors own their own homes and would prefer to remain there for as long as possible. The longer we own our homes, the more upkeep they are likely to require. he longer seniors remain in their homes, the more help they will need with routine maintenance . While one-off handyman visits may provide occasional relief, finding a company that focuses on a well-rounded, long-term solution is ideal for home management and peace of mind for seniors and their families.

Age In Place Bathroom Improvements

The population of Americans aged 65 and over is projected to more than double by 2060 which will lead to an increased demand for senior service businesses. Companies that serve this growing segment of our communities have a unique opportunity to tap into this growing demand allowing them to improve the day-to-day lives of others while also running a successful and profitable business.
