I`m thinking of starting a home watching business in the city in which I live. The location is perfect since I would be servicing a high end resort market with many seasonal guests. There is also definitely room to grow since the area is growing very rapidly. My main concern involves the security issue of visiting a potential clients home in order to sell my service. Also, a walk through of the home would be required. I`m a woman and have reservations about being in a home with strangers. Most folks are decent but there`s always another Ted Bundy out there. I don`t know if there is a way to reduce the risk factor although not eliminating it entirely. I don`t have a partner and am new to town so I don`t have anyone to go along with me. In thinking of other service businesses all require you to either go to the clients home or the client to yours. You can`t meet folks in a parking lot. Any thoughts on this issue? Would this be an issue with anyone on this forum? Your comments will be appreciated.
