I’ve idly wished for a personal assistant off and on for a long time, and it finally makes financial and professional sense to try it out. So I’m officially looking for one on a virtual basis.
Things with which I would like assistance:
- Scheduling and booking travel.
- Responding to speaking invitations and scheduling speaking engagements.
- Scheduling both professional and personal appointments.
- Keeping track of correspondence and helping to answer it promptly.
- Helping to organize side projects.
All work can be done via email and/or phone, so it doesn’t matter exactly where you are physically - however, I’m currently in the US in the Eastern time zone and will be moving in two months to the Central time zone, so sticking close to that would probably help us both out.
I think, right now, the amount of work would average around five hours a week, possibly more. If it works out well, that would probably increase. If you’re located in Chicago and would be willing to help with in-person organization, it would definitely increase.
If you’re interested in learning more about web development, I’d also be more than happy to make this an opportunity to learn about working in the field and to connect with people I know. If you don’t already know me on the internets, swing through my website or my Twitter profile to get a sense of what I do.
If you’d like to chat about it, please send me an email at email@example.com to tell me about your experience and rates.
