Have you ever thought about offering concierge services? This couple started with lawn care and found a niche with concierge services.

What's your view on this sort of business?

The struggle to juggle (http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/life/story/4093835p-4691915c.html) - The 37-year-old founder of Minding Your Manors Home Services and Concierge also once drove all the way to Fargo, N.D., to pick up a dog a client was adopting from a rescue organization.

That's a long way from the house-sitting and lawn-care services he provided when he and his wife launched the business in 2002. They currently have around 60 regular clients, aged 30 to 80.

"Nowadays, I more or less call myself a home-support service person, and what that means is different for each person," says Reape, a former corrections officer.
