Are you wondering whether a personal concierge service is the solution for you? Perhaps you’re curious about why someone hires a personal concierge…and whether that someone could be you.
Being in the personal concierge business for over 18 years has allowed us to be closely involved in our clients’ lives. We’ve seen some common themes in the reasons clients come to us for personal concierge service. Here are the TOP FIVE. We hope these will be helpful to you as you consider your situation.
Top 5 Reasons Clients Hire California Concierge
1. Trying to juggle too much.
These clients have so many demands on their time, they feel they’re not doing a good job at any of them. They feel they’re always letting someone down – especially themselves – because, inevitably, things fall through the cracks. They don’t sleep well, thinking about all they have to do. Life has become a hamster wheel; they’re always chasing and never getting ahead of their to-do’s. But, to their credit, they recognize they’re headed for burnout. And, so they finally do what others have suggested to them: they get help and off-load to California Concierge.
2. Working 60+ hours/week.
These clients already feel guilty about not spending enough time with their kids during the week. And, because of their workday schedule, weekends have become a whirlwind of activity – running errands and playing catch-up on household chores and maintenance needs. Weekends begin to feel like extensions of the work-week or a second job, instead of downtime. Realizing their family is precious, and the kids are only young for a few years, they choose to have California Concierge take care of the weekend load during the week, so they can relax, recharge, and spend quality time on weekends with their family.
3. No longer wanting to do all the “stuff” at this point in their life.
They are definitely not lazy, by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, quite the contrary. They know how to prioritize. And, realizing time is their most valuable resource, they have decided they don’t want to spend precious hours doing weekly routines that can easily be handed off. They trust and feel comfortable with California Concierge handling those tasks. Then they can use their time for what they do best and what’s important to them.
4. Traveling for extended periods, but worried about their home.
Often clients come to us because someone…a friend, a neighbor or a family member…who they thought was taking care of things for them, let them down. They didn’t pick up the mail or they left flyers collecting on the front porch; they forgot to water the house plants; or they left an entry gate unlocked or ajar. These lapses led to a lack of confidence in that person and, potentially, a security issue. How can they be away while constantly wondering whether their home is being left vulnerable? They decide to entrust matters to California Concierge whom they know will tick everything off their checklist, resolve any issues that may arise, and keep them informed, giving them peace of mind while they’re away.
5. Going through a major life change.
They’re newly divorced or a new parent. They feel overwhelmed – torn between the demands of work, the needs and desires of parenting and managing a home. They’re stretched thin, stressed, and exhausted by responsibilities that are all on their shoulders. And there’s a nagging fear something is being left undone. These clients come to California Concierge and count on us to share the load, relieve them of tasks that don’t have to be done by them, and facilitate and maintain a return to normalcy so they can enjoy life again.
