Congratulations to our first prize winner, Briana Gallagher. She will receive $250 for her innovative business plan. When faced with creating a business idea, Briana looked around for needs in her community. What she found were seniors who needed people to run errands. Because there are more than 40 million senior citizens in the U.S. alone (with that number expected to double by 2030), she knew she had stumbled upon a good idea. That’s when she decided to create a business plan for Errand Angels Senior Services, where workers would provide errand and personal service assistance to seniors. “I didn’t expect to win, but it was a nice surprise. Really, I was trying to create something that did good. And it is always good to help the elderly. I could probably start this company with little money,” Briana said. “I was working for a company that does theater for seniors when I stumbled upon the idea.” Briana plans to build her business based on price, exceptional customer service, and what she calls durability. With durability, she says that relationships with seniors will bring ongoing business and demand.

She took the initiative and figured out all of her costs, including liability insurance, gas, and more: “After my expenses, I estimate I can make up to $4,000 a month before taxes. That’s $36,000 a year if I work full time.” Errand Angels Senior Services Briana Gallagher Continued from page 1 Errand Angels Senior Services And the winners are… 1st place Briana Gallagher - $250 Errand Angels Senior Services Top 10 Break-Up Songs 2nd place Jordan Todd - $150 BeYOUtiful spa party service 3rd place - $50 Caitlyn LaBarron Junkyard Jewelry Watch for another business competition © 2013 CUANM.

Then shop consignment or thrift stores and you might even make a couple of dollars. Thrift stores sell donated clothing but don’t buy your items or take trades. There are sweet bargains for the avid shopper. Consignment stores split profits with people who bring in items and won’t accept damaged pieces. So prices are higher – still far below retail - but so is quality. Check out consignment stores like Plato’s Closet or Buffalo Exchange because the ever-changing inventory is heavily stocked with trendy, vintage, and popular brand-name clothing and accessories. Trade in your own gently used clothing for store credit or cash too.
