Home Secretarial Services (HSS) is an organization of home-based secretaries, serving many communities and was established in 1985. Each secretary works independently offering different services at different prices. As an independent contractor, each secretary works as his or her own boss, in their own business.

Upon membership to our team, and filling out our membership profile (for
customer/secretary compatibility) we will send to you, via telephone, referred customers. These referrals are a direct response to our advertising, so we cannot guarantee the amount of calls. Also, because of our networking team you will receive calls, not just from Home Secretarial Services, but from the other secretaries on the team.

Why join our team? You need to get your name out there and we are a foundation to marketing your company. Yes, you can advertise on your own, but it can be very expensive. By joining our team, you are joining a network of other secretaries, just like you, who want to share referrals with you, along with the expense of advertising. You must agree that advertising with us is a great place to promote your company, a savings to your marketing expense.
