A Personal Concierge is so much more than a human word processor. Sure, being able to type up documents for you may be high on your list of job requirements, but it pays to consider what other tasks you can delegate.
The first thing you need to do is compile a comprehensive to-do-list. List tasks in priority order and include a due date. You can work through the list together or delegate particular jobs. Your Personal Concierge may have an area that she specialises in, having qualifications or experience that she can bring with her. Make sure that you find out what she likes to do and is good at before setting her the work.
Important birthdays and anniversaries are a good thing to delegate. Give your Personal Concierge a calendar of events. a budget and suggested interest for each person you need to buy for. They can buy and wrap gifts for you, buy cards and arrange postage if required.
A Personal Concierge can research information and pricing on products that are hard to get, too. Don’t waste your time trying to track down that one-off item when your Personal Concierge can do it for you. She can arrange quotes and even carry out purchases for you when you have made your choice. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have someone who can go shopping for particular items while you work and save you the stressful last minute dash around?
If you are thinking of travelling, your concierge can seek out the best value flights, hire cars, book accommodation and fill out a comprehensive itinerary for you. How much easier is that than trying to do it yourself?
A Personal Concierge can source any other required services for you, book appointments and restaurants and tickets to entertainment events. The list of possibilities is only limited by your ability to delegate!
Call me – delegating is not painful you know – you’ll end up wondering how you have gone so long without doing it!

Running out of Time to Buy that Present?
I know a science professor who has commented that in the past, if her young son was invited to a birthday party, the present had to be bought from Safeway or 7eleven or it just didn't happen.
