Portage, MI, September 07, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- At one time or another, everyone secretly wishes for more time or an extra pair of hands. In today’s fast-paced world, it seems there is never enough time to get everything on our ‘To Do’ list done which can often lead to stress. September brings unique challenges while families shift to the start of school year. The good news is that help is only a phone call away.
A Single Ray of Hope is a new Personal Assistant & Concierge Service serving the Portage/Kalamazoo, Michigan area that provides quality, personalized assistance and serves individuals, families and businesses. This service was once only available in hotels and a luxury reserved for the rich and famous. Today, it’s available to everyone from single parents, busy executives, two-income families to apartment complexes and businesses.
Services cover that one-time special project or others on a regular basis. They handle projects from home or business management, party/event coordination, travel/leisure reservations to gift purchasing and errands. Services are only limited by the client’s imagination. Some people want help with a dinner or birthday party while others prefer errand assistance so they don’t have to spend their Saturday running all over town.
Many people today are members of the ‘sandwich generation’ as they are caring for their children and their parents. Personal Assistant & Concierge services can be very beneficial as these persons are often pulled in many directions.
Mary Beth Esquibel, business owner of A Single Ray of Hope, speaks from her experience as a mother who worked full-time and whose spouse had a rotating work schedule. The Esquibels have raised two sons, one of which has special needs and required much time, attention and many doctor and school appointments.
Esquibel stated, “Like most people, I was burning the candle at both ends. I carried stress from home to work and back again. This was not healthy but is typical in society. Reflecting back…I know now what I could have done differently to gain more balance, decrease stress and live a more enjoyable life. I could have asked for help from sources outside my family.”
Esquibel shared that Personal Assistant & Concierge Services are intended to help others. Too often, women are busy taking care of others and they don’t have time or energy left for themselves. Esquibel believes that life is too short to be stressed. Services allow clients to focus on what they truly want or need to do and delegate the rest. Esquibel states “If I can make a client’s journey easier, I have done my job well.”
Clients are stating that this new business is making a difference. Comments from one client included “This was a great gift to myself that allowed me to relax and enjoy our special event because I knew you had everything under control.”
With the help of the internet, clients can now be served via virtual assistance not only in Michigan but literally, anywhere. Visit www.asinglerayofhope.com for a comprehensive list of services or call 269-720-7605.
