It might seem odd to hire a personal assistant simply because you like to take vacations with your family. However, it's anything but strange. While personal assistants were once hired only by the wealthy, people from all walks of life are finding ways to use these important workers.
Here are three reasons why you should hire one before taking an extended trip:
1. They allow you to relax
Let's face it, without a personal assistant, you're going to have the itch to check work emails at least once in a while on vacation. But isn't the point of vacation to relax? Instead of checking mail from clients or colleagues who will need your immediate attention, let your personal assistant take care of the matter. They can declutter your email and even send that important presentation you failed to mail over to your boss because you forgot to hit the "send" button.
2. They can help you arrange your family vacation
Not only can you enjoy being on vacation because a personal assistant takes care of work obligations, they can also take the stress out of planning a getaway. Let them arrange travel and lodging. You can also ask them to jot down great restaurants in the area or things for you and your family to do.
3. They can take care of your home
A personal assistant shouldn't be involved with heavy indoor or outdoor cleaning, but they can do light house work. For example, they can bring in your mail and watch over your residence while you're away. If you have a pet that needs to be fed and walked, your personal assistant can help take care of it.
