I am an educator with a strong interest in business and finance. I am also the owner of a blog called themoneytrack. My goal is to provide honest, easy to understand information that will help people make smarter decisions with their money.
There will always be some success stories out there. After all, these vending machines wouldn't exist if they weren't making money. Just be sure to do your research before risking a lot of your hard earned capital.
That's a great question and a great idea. If there ever has been a need for "lifestyle management," the time is now. It's tough a tell if you have a valid business idea though. I would imagine your toughest part will be getting into the industry because I think all of your clients will be wealthier. Once you get in, your success can travel by word of mouth if you are providing a good service.
It sounds like you are right on track. However, tax laws do vary from state to state. I would ask around similar companies just to get a feel for what they are doing, or ask a lawyer/accountant that is familiar with tax laws in your state. They would likely be willing to answer a simple question like that for no charge.
When you are social you need to be sure to build a true community feel. In the long run that is where you will find the most success. If you are just going out there trying to get people to click your link, but you don't provide them with something that they want, you most likely will not see them again.
