Need a hand?

At some point we've all wished we had a personal assistant. Just a little help with the mundane tasks that eat up so much time in the day. Unfortuately, a personal assistant is a tad pricey. Enter Ask Sunday. Have you heard of this?

Ask Sunday is a virtual assistant. For a monthly fee, you can visit their Web site and place a request. Here are some of the requests they handle that I find appealing.
  • Make appointments (doctor, salon, plumber, etc.)
  • Book flights or hotels
  • Make restaurant reservations
  • Have someone wait in line for me at the DMV. Call me when I'm close to the front of the line.
  • Call the cable company. When a live technical support person answers, call my office and patch me in.
  • Send e-mail reminders. Make wake-up calls.

There are a variety of pricing plans, starting at $19 per month for 10 requests up to 90 requests in 90 days for $135.

Isn't this appealing?

I don't think $19 to get someone to do 10 things for you is expensive, do you? But how do they wait in line for you if it's a virtual assistant?

Wow that's a great question Nat. I would start saving money for this but Natalie has different plans for my money. Aunt T

Waiting in line at the DMV doesn't sound so bad.MM

What about cleaning my house?! About my auction, I took it off because I may be doing it through another site- I will let you know. Because frankly, I don't get that much traffic! But I really want to do it. I was so touched by her story! I will email you when I get word.

Yes, but Nat has me on the new TV, Tivo, Direct TV and WII plan.... No room for the personal assistant.

I don't actually have a comment on this topic. I just wanted you to know that I'm on your super-secret, Katie's-klique-only blog. Did you really think you could elude me for long? Told you I'm in the CIA.
