Get into the Concierge Biz*
by Ginger S. Eiden, Arizona Woman
The concierge business is not for wimps, warns Patricia Dreiseszun,
owner of Phoenix-based World Class Concierge Services. But it can be a
nice way to earn a living. A Concierge’s income varies widely with
volume and clientele, but the starting salary for a busy concierge is
about $50,000 per year, according to industry data.
A member of Les Clefs d’Or and the National Concierge Association and a
founder of Valley of the Sun Concierge Network Association (currently 90
members strong), Dreiseszun has been in the business for 26 years and
offers Concierge-in-a-Box: everything you need to know to get started in
the concierge business. The $350 kit comes with a manual filled with
marketing tips, budget advise and customer service training, plus one
hour of telephone support from Dreiseszun to answer the many questions
that can come up along the way.
“I’ve had a wonderful career in this business, says Dreiseszun, whose
own concierge services to clients begin at $29.95. For more information,
call (602) 340-1166.

level of professionalism, even in a home office. Dreiseszun advises:
