You get by with a little help from your friends. Unless you’re time strapped and ask them to schedule your lady doctor appointment. Then they magically lose your number.
Save yourself (and your relationships) with PA for a Day, a new NYC-based service that provides short-term, affordable personal assistants.
Shoot the crew an email with your needs (errands, cleaning, event organization), and they’ll match you with the best man/woman for the job. Each assistant is reference checked, interviewed, required to sign a confidentiality agreement, and will run you $20 per hour (two-hour minimum).
Our strapping PA, Ryan, picked up alcoholic cupcakes and Cambodian sandwiches, tracked down a very specific vintage lightbulb, bought eggs and fennel at the green market, and exchanged foreign currency as well as an H&M top.
They’ll help with anything that’s not illegal and doesn’t involve children, so get creative.
Your imaginary friends will enjoy the day off.
