Even the best optimists have to admit that life can be hard. Work and family obligations leave us little time to take care of the necessary details in life – bills, appointments, birthday presents, phone calls, etc. If only personal assistants weren’t just for the rich and famous…
Well, I’ve got news for you: it is possible to have a personal assistant without being a glamorous movie star. Recently, I learned about a company, AskSunday, that offers various online personal assistant packages starting as low as $37 per month. What can a virtual secretary accomplish for you? Turns out, plenty! Tasks include:
- Booking appointments (doctors, salons) and reservations (restaurants, hotels)
- Coordinating travel plans
- Making calls (clients, vendors, your mama ;))
- Doing online research and reading emails
- Entering and analyzing data
- Ordering flowers, books, and gifts
With the 24/7 Service, you can have an assistant at your beck and call, day and night (hmmm, wonder if it’s possible to request a lullaby over the phone during those nights of insomnia). Another service, Dedicated Assistants, allows you email or phone access to an assistant from 10:30AM EST to 7:30PM EST, Monday thru Friday. With this kind of help, you might actually have some leisure time to dedicate to just YOU.
It’s very exciting that AskSunday has made personal assistants affordable to the masses. But what will blow your mind is that they’re actually giving away a 3-month personal assistant package – absolutely free! All you have to do is tell us why YOU (boohoo, poor you) would benefit from a little help from an AskSunday virtual secretary. Submit your entry via Boingo’s Facebook or Twitter page.
