Why I Decided to Become a Process Server

2 Min. Read / Updated on March 5th, 2021

I had no contacts. No experience. And I was going to school full-time. In fact, school was my biggest reason to become a process server; I needed a source of income with a flexible schedule.

But even more than that, I just don’t like being tied to a job. Giving one person, one organization, that much control over my life is frustrating.

Maybe you know how I feel?

I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and process serving offered low start-up expenses and the opportunity to grow a business part-time. When I found out Colorado doesn’t require a process server license, I decided to jump in.

I didn’t know much about the industry, but I wasn’t going to let that slow me down. I knew that if I could find just one client, I’d grow the business from there.

So I registered a limited liability company, set up a cheap office number that forwarded to my cell phone, and printed up a couple hundred business cards.

I handed those cards out to everyone I knew, and a couple weeks later I got my first call. A guy wanted me to serve his wife with divorce papers. It went off without a hitch. Finally, I had become a process server.

But the work didn’t stop there. I built a website, asked for referrals, and eventually landed a suburban municipality as a client.

I didn’t have a “Cousin Frankie” to introduce me to all the old-timers in the business. I didn’t have a big start-up budget (I did it for less than a couple hundred dollars). And I didn’t have any references.

The point I’m making is that anyone—including you—can make a go of this business regardless of experience or background.
