Forbes Magazine lists a Personal Concierge as one of seven easy-to-start businesses. They’re being paid for tasks like doing laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning your home. That’s where the Bryan based business, Bizzy Bees, comes in.

It’s dry cleaning day for John Echols and like the rest of us, his to-do list is long.

“I’m going to the post office, the bank, the cleaners and I need to do a little grocery shopping,” said the College Station resident.

Bria Jackson’s day is also full of errands, at least she hopes. Jackson’s Bizzy Bees errand service has only been running for a month and at twenty-dollars an hour she’ll run your errands for you.

“I usually just spend most of the day in the car,” said Jackson, “Just anything that you need done, I can basically do it.”

She said she’s doing more than just shortening your to-do list.

“I’m basically adding hours to their day,” said Jackson.

A service her clients said is priceless.

“Time is worth more than anything and I’d rather be doing anything else in the world than working on old files,” said Bizzy Bees client Joan Christian.

Christian may be pleased but If you were to ask the retired 75-year-old Echols, fewer errands isn’t a good thing.

“Heck no, takes all the fun out of life,” said Echols, “That’s where I meet all of my friends.”

Whether you have no time or all the time in the world, if you need a helping hand Jackson will gladly give you hers.

“I love helping people. I love when I feel like I’m lifting something off of their shoulders,” said Jackson.

She still has a night job but her days are filling up quickly for what some see as chores, Jackson sees as an opportunity to make a living.
