According to Forbes, 70% of people hate their jobs. And ironically, 70% of Americans would prefer to be self-employed. The question is, “what type of business should someone start?” Many want to start a business that helps others.

If you take a step back and look at the American society and economy you can see that a lot of help is needed for Americans today. It’s true that the unemployment rate has fallen steadily since 2010. And, generally, the economy is in better shape. But the following is also true:

  • The median amount of retirement savings in the U.S. is $5,000
  • 35% of adults have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts
  • 34% have no savings and half have no retirement savings
  • Fewer than half of American families are saving for college
  • Of those that are saving for college, the average amount is just over $10,000 while the cost of in-state public school is nearly $10,000 per year not including room and board

Start a Business That Offers 3 Things That Americans Need

So, we’ve uncovered a few different ways to start a business that helps others. The most obvious is to educate and help the average American family understand the importance of saving for the future.

But in most cases, it’s not just education regarding the need to save. Most families that don’t save will say they don’t have enough money. So, they must understand budgeting and debt reduction.

In addition, 68 million Americans have poor credit scores. This may cost them the most. With a low credit score, they are spending far more than needed on interest payments on cars, homes, and credit cards. By increasing their credit score the average person can save up to $200,000 and more by paying lower interest rates.

Start a Business That Helps Others

These are areas of need that can be fulfilled by someone that wants to start a business to help others.

You may surmise that the underlying reason all of the above is happening is that the average American family isn’t making enough money. What if you could start a business that helps others by also showing them how to start their own home-based business helping others?

Think about it. You could have a business that helps others by offering services that educate them on how to save more of the money they earn. And, for those that want to earn more, you could show them how to start a business that helps others as well. And earn income from their business.

This is what we have been doing since 2012. We have helped nearly 1,000 families get into a better financial situation. We’ve helped hundreds more start their own business to earn more income. And, we get paid for the production of those businesses.

We have changed our own financial situation dramatically. We also receive the gratification of knowing that we help others every single day.
