What a Personal Assistant Will Do for You and Why You Need One
As more and more delivery and errand service companies open up, you may have started wondering if you really need a private personal assistant or if you should just outsource your tasks as needed. And while the later may seem like the best idea, we are here to tell you that having a personal assistant will always be better than hiring a contract task runner through an app.
It’s a bold statement, and we stick by it because we know the benefits of having your personal assistant, and we are going to share those benefits with you.
Benefits of Having a Personal Assistant
Better Work/Life Balance
We can all agree that there aren’t enough hours in the day. But a personal assistant can help you create a better work/life balance by handling the tasks you don’t have time for. You’ll have several free evenings and weekends in your future.
One Step Ahead
Your personal assistant is trained to anticipate your needs, and while you may not notice it, they are always thinking one step ahead to make sure you don’t miss deadlines, forget important dates, or run out of needed items.
Your app tasker may not have any training. And while proper training may not seem important at first, you will see a big difference between the two types of service. A trained personal assistant anticipates your needs, communicates properly, and will take the initiative to handle tasks you don’t ask them to do. Your app tasker will do the task at hand.
Peace of Mind
You’ll instantly feel a weight is lifted off of your shoulders when you know that someone you trust is going to handle the tasks you don’t have time for. You won’t spend your day worrying about how you will manage to do it all.
Not only will you have more time to do the things you love, but you will also be able to be in two places at once. Well, not technically, but your personal assistant can take your car to service appointments, attend meetings, take your pet to appointments, and more on your behalf.
When you use an app tasker you probably won’t ever have the same person working for you again. Hiring a personal assistant guarantees those tasks you need completed are done with consistency and to your standards. They are also a trusted confidant and can be a sounding board for you.
Keep You and Your Family on Schedule
As much as a personal assistant helps you save time, they also keep you on time. They will remind you about calendar events, holidays, birthdays, weddings, and more. They will even make sure you have gifts as needed.
When you use contract delivery and errand services, you can’t really stop someone from taking pictures of your home and posting Instagram Stories on who they just delivered to. With a LifeSquire personal assistant, your privacy is as important to us as it is you. Our assistants all have up-to-date, non-disclosure agreements.
