Become A Butler
Startup Cost:

Income Potential:

Tens of thousands of wealthy families employ their own live-in butlers to handle day-to-day tasks such as preparing and serving dinner, running errands, cleaning, and watching over the household. Most professional butlers usually choose to attend a butler school where particular tasks such as serving wine and proper business etiquette are practiced. In order to be a butler you need to have a desire to serve someone else above your own needs. The pay is usually fair, though potential is very limited. Although some families will place one butler in charge of several other butlers, there is not much room for advancement beyond this. Your flexibility is also extremely limited in that your services are dependent on you physically being present in your employer's household on a daily basis.

Do you have a desire to serve the needs of someone else before your own? This is an important element, as if you have a problem being a servant to someone else, it will cause dissention between you and your employer.

Make sure you take pride in remaining well-groomed and well-mannered. Consider attending a butler school in order to learn the neccessary skills most employers will be looking for.

Be sure you have a clean background free of any criminal activity. An employer is not going to want to hire someone who is untrustworthy to watch over their family and personal belongings.
