Could hiring a PA help you find extra time in your day?

Could hiring a PA help you find extra time in your day?

In today’s busy world it is very easy to fall behind in what you want to achieve in your professional, home and personal life. Life is busy and no matter how organised you are there is only so much you can achieve yourself.

Trying to be everything to everyone can lead you to feeling burnt out and if we are being honest, totally fed up because you are not giving your best to any area of your life.
It’s at times like this when our clients look to employ more household staff such as Nannies, Gardeners and Housekeepers but sometimes it is the more personal side of your life that you want help with to become more efficient and productive. We often ask our clients to consider just how different their lives could be if they hired a skilled and experienced Personal Assistant (PA) to assist with the running of their everyday lives.

Finding the right PA, with skills well suited to your needs really is a game changer and the difference it makes can be quite astounding. The good news is the role is flexible and it can be tailored to offer the support you and your family need by combining several different roles.

Typical duties associated with a PA role can include:

  • Event organisation and planning
  • Calendar scheduling for the whole family
  • Managing budgets and personal finances
  • Attending business meetings
  • Office and project management
  • Running errands
  • Making travel arrangements
  • Dealing with invoices and handling bill payments
  • Filing, emailing, bookkeeping
  • Scheduling household maintenance
  • Pet care
  • Grocery shopping
  • Laundry
  • Occasional meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping

It really is possible to hire a PA who can combine childcare with administration duties and instead of running yourself into the ground trying to accomplish everything yourself each day, your PA will relieve you of your burden of doing everything yourself making you feel less stressed and overwhelmed. Once you no longer have to take care of everything yourself, you will have far more time to spend focussing on the things that matter most to you, confident that you have the peace of mind that everything is running smoothly and just as you like it.
