So you could think of your assistant in a number of ways. They can be your worker bee (helping you get things done and taking care of the things you don’t want to do), your lifestyle concierge (helping you create the life you want), or your secretary (helping you manage your work and life). We think the term ‘personal assistant’ sums it up best because, really, we can help you with any random task you have – personal or professional – that doesn’t require our physical presence.”
