Supermom’s Secret: How Personal Assistants Can Help Parents


Personal assistants aren’t just for CEOs. The Seattle area is full of families with working parents who need an extra set of hands. Believe it or not, personal assistants can do more than just get coffee, take phone calls, and remember to send anniversary presents.

Whether you’re a single working mom, a stay-at-home dad, or simply a couple that’s doing their best, it can be difficult to parent your children, run a household, and still have time for yourself. The 2023 State of Motherhood Survey reports that over 60% of moms get less than an hour to themselves each day. 

It’s sadly understandable. With work, meetings, school, after-school activities, helping with homework, going grocery shopping, and prepping for the next day it’s a wonder parents get any free time at all.

This is why hiring a personal assistant can be so beneficial for busy parents.

Asking for Help Is Okay

We know asking for help can be difficult. It’s almost ingrained in us to try to take care of everything ourselves, and to view reaching out for assistance as a sign of weakness. We’re here to tell you that asking for help is okay — even encouraged!

Outsourcing tasks to a personal assistant can help you focus on and be engaged with what truly matters, time for yourself and your family. 

Imagine Your Life With a Pepper’s Personal Assistant

Pepper’s Personal Assistants can help you get some time back by taking care of that pesky to-do list and streamlining otherwise chaotic tasks and organizational duties. 

For example…

While you’re at the office working, your personal assistant can be taking care tidying up around the house.

When you’re in meetings, they could strip the beds, run a few loads of laundry, and fold everything neatly. 

While you’re sending emails, they could load the dishwasher, take out the trash, or make lunches for the kids. 

You don’t have to take time out of your day to run a pet to the vet or take your car to the shop because your assistant can do it for you. 

When you come home in the evening, your dog is happy and relaxed because your assistant took her for a walk. And forget about the pet smells! Your kitty litter is freshly changed. 

Your home is clean and tidy, and the fridge is full of groceries. 

Instead of returning to a long to-do list, you’re coming home to a place where you feel comfortable. Now you can relax and focus on the things you want to do, not the things you have to do.

Personal Assistants Can Relieve Stress and Improve Your Happiness 

Having a personal assistant is about more than just getting all the chores done. The peace of mind we bring can be a huge stress reliever. 

When you’re dreading going home to all the dishes, it impacts your productivity and happiness. Instead, leave your home in the hands of someone professional, trustworthy, and eager to help. Life is too short to fight about who’s going to do the laundry.
