At Pepper’s Personal Assistants we believe in finding the perfect assistant for your specific needs, one that will help make your life easier. We also believe in communication—learning from feedback and sharing our success stories.

Read on to discover how a personal assistant (PA) from Pepper’s helped one professional woman reduce her mental load and focus on what’s important: being present with her family.

Client’s Challenges 

Our client, similar to a lot of us, was used to taking everything on herself. 

Part of a professional family with one parent traveling a lot for work, she was in charge of managing their multiple households, parenting the children (all attending different schools), being involved in her community, and battling an ever-growing to-do-list. Our client was overwhelmed and exhausted, and constantly spent her time on tasks that prevented her from being present, relaxed, and confident as a woman and mother.

While adding extra hours to the day wasn’t an option, Pepper’s was.

Pepper’s Process

At Pepper’s Personal Assistants, we believe that support isn’t a luxury—it’s a necessity. We know firsthand what it feels like to try to do it all, and worse yet, fall short of your expectations. 

As experts in home management, we were able to help this client get countless hours back in her day by taking care of the unexpected and managing the everyday tasks that pile up. Our client’s personal assistant continues to be thoughtful, dedicated, cheerful, and always one-step ahead of the family’s needs. 

“We are grateful to have found Peppers and our personal assistant…things are better in our family and home because of you all.”

Expecting the Unexpected

Beyond being there for everyday support, our client’s PA has jumped right in to support her through performing the following duties:

  • Managed a backyard remodel project
  • Helped the client set up their second home 
  • Planned themed parties for the kids and helped out onsite
  • Assisted in helping to plan trips for for unexpected family events
  • Put together gift bags for an event the client was hosting
