How Hiring a Personal Assistant Can Empower You to Strengthen Household Relationships


If you feel like there are never enough hours in a day, it can be difficult enough to tackle your entire to-do list — let alone find uninterrupted time to spend with loved ones. Though we’d all love to achieve the perfect work-life balance, it’s not always possible, and this can put unnecessary strain on our relationships. Even when your career or household duties reach capacity, there’s no need to compromise your valued personal connections. No matter your living situation, here’s how hiring a personal assistant can give you back precious quality time, relieve loads of stress, and ultimately empower you to strengthen your most treasured relationships.

How a Personal Assistant Can Help Married or Live-In Couples

Are you dreaming of less arguing over household task delegation and more time to devote to date nights? When was the last time you and your partner enjoyed some quality time with one another after work? Between family, friends, career, pets, home life, and keeping the romance alive, power couples have a lot on their shared and individual plates. Your trusted personal assistant can take over any number of chores each week, allowing you and your significant other to get out of the house or enjoy a relaxed night in. Got a task both you and your partner have been avoiding, such as organizing the pantry? Allow your personal assistant to take care of it and create more space in your life (both literally and figuratively).

How a Personal Assistant Can Help Families

Your personal assistant can cover to-do list items you’re not able to tackle during the day, freeing you up to spend time taking the kids to the movies, enjoying some time at the park, or having a family game night. While you’re at work, we can grocery shop, prep family meals, cut up healthy fruit and veggies for after-school snacking, and stock workspaces for homework time. No time to cook in the evenings? We’ll set up your crockpot with all the ingredients for your favorite dinner, ready to go once you walk in the door. 

How a Personal Assistant Can Help Other Households

More: Perhaps you live in a full household of busy young professionals and are searching for a solution to chores that tend to go unfinished. Or maybe you and your family have opened your home to an elderly parent. Regardless, we’ll help your home run smoothly by doing dishes, prepping meals, running errands (prescription pickup, grocery shopping, mailing packages, and more), folding clothes, and scheduling appointments. Wherever you need someone to pick up the slack, your personal assistant is there to help.

Pepper’s Personal Assistant Reviews

See what it’s really like to work with a Pepper’s personal assistant!

Stress-Free Travel

“One of the massive benefits of having a PA is during travel disruptions. When flights are delayed, the kids are upset, and you’re stuck in customs, coming home to a stocked fridge and a prepared meal eliminates the need for a late-night milk run. You don’t realize the stress these tasks add until you have someone to handle them for you.”


Deep Gratitude!

“The first week with Vincent has gone exceptionally well! I have no questions or concerns, only deep, deep gratitude for the difference he has already made.”



“My PA is incredible—an 11 out of 10—really thoughtful, thorough, intuitive. She is professional but friendly; she has just been great. A couple of times because of things going on with her calendar, Kandis has been flexible—coming 15 minutes later to drop the dog off at puppy play. She has been really great.”


Thoughtful and Detail-Oriented

“My PA is a thoughtful and discerning assistant. She pays attention to details in our home and makes great suggestions for how to improve and optimize our lives. We trust her judgment, and she communicates proactively and frequently. She is always on-site on time and patient with my unpredictable schedule. We communicate frequently, but she’s also very efficient in how we communicate. Great work!”


Super Happy!

“[I] really do think Kandis is setting the bar! Having a new person come into your house can go either way. [I’m] very grateful for the time and energy and people that Pepper’s has. It’s a big step; no suggestions around onboarding. [I’m] really happy that we were able to board Kandis quickly; super happy for the West Seattle support.”


Organizing Superhero

“My PA is really good at organizing; it’s one of her superpowers. Some of the simple reorganizing things that she has done have made a big impact. She organized all the cat stuff in the garage and took the initiative on her own. She’s bright and cheery—no moaning, whining. Very great.”


One of the Best Decisions I’ve Made

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how much I have appreciated working with all of the Pepper’s staff. My assistant is so generous and thoughtful — she brings value to every interaction. I can’t remember a time when I’ve hired anyone with such a professional and high standard of customer service. Working with you all has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a very long time!”


10/10 for Sure!

“Missa is a 10/10 for sure! She has been wonderful, and we check in regularly. I’m comfortable communicating with her about questions or requests, and she’s always been very responsive and also seems comfortable checking in if she has any questions for me. [The] biggest help remains pet care and household chores support, plus the help with one-off projects that come up. Missa has all kinds of skills she brings, (e.g., she’s currently putting together a ‘cat highway’ for the living room rafters).”


My Quality of Life Has Improved

“I used to spend every weekend and every evening doing chores and running errands. Now, I’m able to spend the time that I need to on my business, and then I get to enjoy my home and my life and the precious unstructured time that I have. The truth is, my quality of life has improved by having a Pepper’s household assistant here.”


Takes Initiative

“I want to mention what a fantastic personal assistant Billie is to me. We were on vacation last week, and she managed my household and vendors flawlessly. I even had her redecorate my office, and I gave her very little direction other than just to make it nice and functional, and, my goodness, did she ever! She takes initiative in my house in so many other ways but does not overstep or overspend. To strike that balance is really something unique and special. I feel really lucky to have her.”


I’m Blown Away

“[I’m] blown away by how much better the house looks already :)”


Kind, Caring, and Proactive

“My PA is a very caring person. I was incredibly ill last year, and my PA connected the dots that the washing machine had a lot of mold and thought the black specs on my clothes were from that. On her own time, my PA sent me an article about the impact of mold/washing machines. It was so kind of her.”


Goes Above and Beyond

“My PA has gone above and beyond. She’s organized my laundry room while keeping on top of laundry, which made it much easier to stay on top of stuff. She’s always ready to jump in and tackle items. It made this holiday season way less stressful.”
