Reasons To Consider Hiring A Personal Assistant In 2019

Do you need a PA? With the madness of Christmas over and a new year fresh on the horizon now is the perfect time to make resolutions for the year ahead. But while many people are contemplating what to give up, we’re putting the focus on what, or who, you can add to your life to make 2019 your best, and less stressed, year yet. We all complain about not having enough time, it’s our most precious resource and this year wouldn’t it be wonderful to just have a bit more of it?

Save time

The biggest advantage to having a private assistant is that he or she can free up your time. By handing over tasks such as filing e-mails, scheduling meetings and running errands to your personal assistant, you’ll have more time to devote to business, your homes, family, leisure and hobbies. Once you get to know each other better a good PA will be able to make decisions on your behalf and, if needed, take charge of your calendar. Thereby not only freeing you from having to complete tasks but taking away the mental stress of having to plan and remember everything as well.

Reduce Stress

Because this extra free time can help you relax more, you’ll be more likely to perform better at work and home, enjoy better physical and mental health and have better relationships with others.

Combined skills

Having an extra pair of hands also means having an extra skill set and resource of knowledge. We’ll match you with a private PA that suits the kind of work that you need them to do, for example you might book a lot of travel and therefore need someone who has extensive knowledge of the best deals and travel companies to use. Or perhaps you own multiple properties and need help managing them. Whatever your requirements we’ll find someone with a skill set to match.

Trusted eyes and ears

When you hire a personal assistant, you have a second set of eyes and ears at your disposal. This is ideal if you need proof reading, fact-checking or simply want a second opinion. Having someone perform these tasks will do more than just free up your time, it will give you peace of mind that because of your PA’s trusted eyes, your work and homelife will likely be of a consistently higher quality.

Whilst having a private PA may seem like an extravagance, in fact having someone to help with the day to day chores of modern life is a far more common occurrence than many people imagine; and for countless individuals a private PA can be a total life transformer. A study recently published in the US stated that people who spent money to buy themselves time were happier than those who saved the money to spend on material possessions*, and from personal experience we couldn’t agree more. When chosen correctly a good private PA is like having a second set of eyes and ears, they’ll take care of the jobs you never have the time (or inclination) to deal with and free up your own time and mental space to deal with the jobs and life events that really need your attention.
