Working with a Personal Concierge & The ‘Trust’ Factor

The job of a personal concierge is to make your life simpler.

They do this by completing those annoying, time-consuming tasks you just can’t seem to find the time for, by ticking items off your to-do-list and essentially, whatever they can do to destress and better organise your life!

Nov 30, 2017 0 comments

Don’t let December be a stressful month, take the time to enjoy the fun things life has on offer even if they are only small. This time of the year is usually pretty crazy as we are all trying to get organised for Christmas and the New Year but don’t forget your local concierge is here to help with all those hard jobs (nothing is too hard for us). Let us help with your Christmas/End of Year functions, organise Christmas gifts (did you know we can buy in bulk which in turn can save you money!), arrange school holiday placements or even obtain and book flights and accommodation plus find pet sitting services. Its not too late but don’t leave it too the last minute. With all this craziness sometimes, we forget to look after ourselves! SO make December your month to do something FUN each day. Here is 24+ fun and thoughtful ideas for the month of December. Buy two boxes of wine to get you through the next 24 days (Tassie wine of course!) Make a video of your family singing Christmas carols and post this onto YouTube. A fun and innovative way to send your Christmas card to friends and family Put the Christmas decorations up in your pyjamas Clear out the pantry and donate any unwanted items to a charity Clean out the kid’s rooms in preparation for all the new stuff. Also ask the kids to donate some unwanted items to charity Do that last odd job Colouring in, a great way to relax and clear your mind Have a slumber party under the Christmas tree and watch Christmas movies Use your Christmas crockery and glassware Have a family Christmas story night Make a family video, listing the best things each person did this year Make eggnog Jamie Olivers recipe 13.

Oct 4, 2017 0 comments

R U OK? is a suicide prevention charity in Australia, reminding people that having meaningful conversations with friends, work mates and loved ones could save lives. The charity also aims to help reduce the stigma around mental illness and suicide, as well as increase the likelihood that people will access professional support as soon as it’s needed. Got a niggling feeling that someone you work with it isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More agitated or withdrawn? Or they’re just not themselves. Trust that gut instinct and act on it. Start the conversation. Did you know? About 8 people take their own lives every day in Australia 65,000 people attempt suicide each year Suicide is the biggest killer of Australians under 44 years Men account for around 75 per cent of all suicide deaths How to ask R U OK? Is a conversation that can happen any day of the week, all year round. Life’s struggles don’t clock off when we clock on at work. Looking after employees and colleagues who might be doing it tough profits everyone, reduce absenteeism, higher engagement and increase productivity. So, help workmates chat about things that might be pulling them down. Need help in your business in developing ideas and implementing a better Health and Wellbeing workplace culture? Then contact your local concierge today. It could be as simple as making a coffee for a work mate or a staff event such as a sausage sizzle or a team building exercise, starting off that initial conversation. A staff event can build up a sense of camaraderie and rapport between your staff, so they can get to know each other a bit better. It doesn’t take grand gestures to promote a culture of health and wellbeing; simple activities can produce significant benefits for you and your employees. With small changes, you can effectively transition your business into a happy and profitable workplace. October 10 is mental health day. Make sure you’ve got plans in place to address this in your workplace. Contact me today to see how I can assist. CONTACT For more information please visit the R U OK?

Administration Bootcamp

Aug 3, 2017 0 comments

Administration Boot camp (Check out the video) Recently, a good friend of mine asked for some tips on how to declutter her hectic life, she was struggling to get on top of some niggling tasks that she had been putting off for over two years! In my April newsletter and blog I shared the stress that clutter causes in your life and I think we can ALL relate to how quickly it can get out of control and become a much bigger issue.. think wrinkles, moodiness, anxiety and losing touch with the things that matter most to you. I ain’t got time for that and finally my friend realised she no longer had time for that either! I was able to help a friend get a handle on the things that were stressing her the most. In a short space of time we were able to: Clear her email inbox Organise 2 years worth of tax receipts Develop administration procedures Reconcile Xero Create a business plan Helping my friend declutter and get back to her true, carefree self inspired me to offer this service to my clients – I am excited to offer you Administration Boot camp (I promise it’s not the kind that will have you crawling through the mud and walking around in pain for the next week).  Throughout August I am offering Admin Boot camp designed to develop strategies and procedures to declutter your life and maintain your new improved direction. Admin Boot camp is a 1 hour session in person, over the phone or via Skype where we discuss your needs. I will prepare a report with strategies to address the problems discussed, designed to be implemented within one month. At the conclusion of the month we meet again to discuss and analyse your progress to ensure you are accountable and successful.  If you could do with some Admin Boot camp click here for more details.  Until next time, stay healthy, have fun, and keep your life in balance.

Contrary to what first comes to your mind (kids, partner, employees etc), unless you look after yourself, you have no chance of looking after everyone else on that list.
