List of Reasons You Need a Cleaning Person

cleaning-268126_1280

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the idea of having a cleaning person come into my home and pay her for the same job I can do myself. However — my opinions have changed. This is one task that you should absolutely hire someone else to do for you. Although, if you still feel that nobody else can handle a Bissell vacuum cleaner in your home quite like you, then more power to you.

Here are my reasons:

1. She does a better job than you: I had two women come to my one bedroom apartment and clean it this weekend. I realized — I’m really bad at cleaning.

Whether it’s the equipment, elbow grease or time devoted to the cleaning — it doesn’t matter. They outdid me big time! You can learn more about services companies offer here. Read more

Get Some Time Back and Still Get Things Done

Time…it’s what everyone complains about and what we wish we had more of. But maybe you’re not using your time wisely enough. This quote makes me chuckle,

Give Your To-Do List to Someone Else

Each month I feature a fellow list producer who has used lists to succeed. This month Leah Busque, CEO of TaskRabbit.com is my featured list producer. The first time I heard about her company — I fell in love!  It’s an amazing tool for getting your to-do list done!

Basically you sign in and name a task that you need accomplished — then a “task rabbit” will help you out for a fee!  It’s like a personal assistant, guru and friend all in one!  A while back we exchanged guest blogs and Leah wrote about why it’s important to outsource your to-do list so you can get more done.  She’s absolutely right — giving up a few tasks to someone who can do them better will make your life so much easier!

1. Why do you call yourself a compulsive list maker?

Is there really any other way of being? I need to stay uber organized and prioritize the millions of things I have going on each day as founder and CEO of TaskRabbit (a mobile and web marketplace for getting things done). Read more
