Historical Summary:During the founders career in management, the last thing she wanted to do after work was tackle her personal to-do list. She wished for a service to help everyday working people take care of life’s many details, so that home could be her place to relax.
To meet this need she created the company to provide personal assistance and concierge services for the everyday person. Their goal is to reduce their members' stress and increase their resiliency.
It’s not that their clients are helpless. It’s that they are busy and deserve a break.
Today’s technology means more information to sort through. They filter it to meet members’ precise needs, providing information on infinite topics including decorative plant selections, the best vacuum cleaner, lowest air fare, and how to appeal a postal insurance claim denial.
Corporate clients offer the companies services in their benefits package as part of their overall strategy to offer work/life balance and become an employer of choice. Errand running services are most popular with corporate clients. Who wouldn’t enjoy collecting their groceries, dry cleaning, prescriptions and more on their way out of the office, rather than driving all over town after work?
