While taking this time to reflect upon 2019 to remember where we were a year ago and where we want to be in the future, several recurring patterns emerged and they seemed to revolve around questions. For anyone that knows me, they know I ask a lot of questions! Seeing that pattern, I wanted to take the time to share with my followers the top 5 questions we were asked about lifestyle management throughout 2019.
Question No 1: So, what exactly is a lifestyle manager? That is a question we are often asked and one I love to answer! Simply put, a lifestyle manager is a dedicated personal assistant. Imagine being able to hand over your “to-do” which could include picking up dry-cleaning, overseeing home projects like waiting for utility companies and construction projects, delivering client gifts, having someone take your car for routine maintenance, research vacation rentals and party locations, document drafting, letter writing, home organization, document filing, purchase and wrap gifts for loved one, the list could go on and on!
Lifestyle managers are able to assist with many different aspects in life which go above and beyond a traditional assistant. We are there to help you think through projects or be able to simply take a task off your hands with ease so you are worry free.
Question No 2: Are your services affordable? You would be surprised! Common misconceptions of hiring a lifestyle manager include being unaffordable and considered an extravagant luxury. Despite popular belief, our services are priced to appeal to a wide variety of clients which range from businesses to busy families, executives and super moms and dads throughout the Gate City. Remember, we are in the business of helping people!
Question No 3: What makes your services different than any of the larger, nationwide companies? My best reply to this question is to proceed with caution. We believe in building trusted relationships with our clients while the national companies believe in their bottom line by building numbers. By knowing our clients, we are better able to help our clients live a more meaningful and less stressed life and we want them to have trust and confidence in our services.
Question No 4: You offer grocery shopping/delivery services. Wouldn’t it be cheaper for me to use the services provided at the individual stores? Yes, you certainly can use those services. Many stores in the Greensboro area offer shopping for quick and easy pickup and we have several clients that prefer to utilize this service. However, for our clients with high standards, they trust in knowing we will carefully select and choose the items on their lists with the greatest attention to detail.
Question No 5: Is there a need for your services in Greensboro? Yes, and we are hoping 2020 will be our best year yet! Our services have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response which makes our hearts swell with pride! Greensboro is known for many things, such as businesses, colleges and lots of busy people!
Question No. 6: What can you do for me? My best answer? It’s better for me to say what we can’t do, rather than what we can do. As long as it’s legal, moral and ethical, doesn’t require transportation of humans and pets (sorry, my insurance company says no), it’s fair game! Busy mom’s looking to have an organized kitchen (including a clean fridge) with healthy meals available? We can do it. Sourcing hard to find items for a company party? Yep, we can do it! Need a clean car? No problem, we’ll handle it. No matter the size of the job, big or small, we can do it all!
