Bob Lavendusky was a loan officer before he started his courier service over 20 years ago. Getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to him.

He hated being stuck inside, chained to his desk. He had always dreamed of starting his own business and leaving the cubicle behind, but he had no idea what to do or where to start.

When he got laid off, he realized that he had nothing to lose by starting his own business.

After searching for inexpensive business ideas, he discovered that he already had everything he needed to start a private courier business and work for himself.

Over 20 years later, Bob’s courier service handles the daily logistics for over a dozen local businesses. His five drivers handle daily deliveries to multiple cities.

Bob realized that his experience could help others avoid costly pitfalls, and reach personal and financial independence.

Sam Knowlton was struggling to get a foothold as a real estate agent when the real estate market collapsed in 2007. Becoming a part-time courier allowed him to support himself while working just a few hours a day. As the economic recession deepened, the outlook for the real estate industry continued to deteriorate and Sam left the industry to build his own company.

Being a private courier gave Sam the freedom to explore new business opportunities while receiving a stable income. He only needed to work a few hours per day to earn enough to provide for himself.

Sam realized, like Bob, that many could benefit from starting a home-based private courier business and working for themselves.

Whether you dream of starting your own business or simply to have more time and flexibility, we want to help you fulfill your dreams! You can be a CourierPro too.
