One of the many blessings resulting from a free-enterprise-based economy is that it allows a person to find ways to add value to people’s lives and be rewarded for it. And, because of this incentive, people will find remarkably creative ways to create that value. And, the consumer will benefit greatly.
Often, the incentive is personal; inspired by an unhappy experience that results in feeling “Hey, I don’t want anyone else to have to go through it.” Combine that with an ability to provide value in that area and you have the makings of an excellent business.
This is what Becci Hall did in founding Our Financial Concierge, a Des Moines, Iowa company that handles a host of financial details for those people who are either too busy, or unknowledgeable in this particular area.
Her story is really quite touching and – to me – inspiring. There are certainly plenty of ways to serve others and be well compensated for that service. We just need to keep our eyes and ears open for them.
Who do you know (perhaps, you?) who has found creative ways to provide value, “a la Becci”?
