How to Hire a Lifestyle Management Company
Life can feel like one never-ending list of people to call, and things to do. As we get busy in our businesses, and daily lives, there is often not enough time in the day to get everything done by ourselves. Then, once you finally get home, you’re too exhausted to even enjoy the things you’ve worked so hard in your life to have. Can you relate? If so, a lifestyle management company, also known as a personal concierge, may be just what you need to get your to-do list done, and take your time back once and for all.
Do you need a lifestyle management company?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you feel you have plenty of free time for yourself and/or your family?
- Is it easy to get the items on your to-do list done every day?
- Do you make it to every appointment on time?
- Are there enough hours in the day for your business and personal life?
- Have you enjoyed plenty of vacation time and date nights in the last year?
- What about the last 6 months?
- Are you living a healthy lifestyle outside of work (i.e. getting enough sleep, eating right, and taking time to work out)?
If you answered no to one or more of the questions above, you might benefit from hiring a personal concierge. You don’t have to do it all.
How does the process of hiring a lifestyle management company work?
While some personal concierge and lifestyle management companies need a significant amount of time for onboarding, Carver Concierge believes the process should be as quick and easy as possible. Isn’t that why you are hiring them?
Depending on your particular preference and time constraints, Carver Concierge will come to you or schedule an onboarding call over the phone. Giving up as little as 30 minutes of your time can give you back hours, sometimes even starting the same day.
You might be surprised at just how quickly our personal concierge service can take things off your plate, and how much more you want to delegate.
While you may have specific tasks in mind that you know you want taken care of, you’ll soon find that the more your delegate to your concierge the more the gap closes between the life you were living and the one you dreamed of having. The to-do list gets smaller, and the time you have to spend with friends, family and doing the things you really enjoy larger and larger.
The goal of working with a personal concierge is to give you the time to get back to your zone of genius at work, and have plenty of time at the end of the day to enjoy the spoils of your hard work.
If you’re like most people, you’ll quickly feel like a weight has been lifted off of your shoulders even before your personal concierge begins the work. This is the case for many entrepreneurs, CEOs, and top and mid level executives.
Something about the act of hiring someone to help, gives many people a great sense of relief. The peace of mind you receive simply from removing some of the items from your to-do list can be life changing.
Our philosophy is that hiring a lifestyle management company should make things easier on you, not harder. After all, you’re busy and don’t have time to train someone new. That’s why we make it as simple and fast as possible to get you onboarded in one day – so you don’t have to worry anymore. You can start enjoying your time again, and allow someone else to do the heavy lifting for you.

Is it time to consider a lifestyle management company for your needs?
If you find yourself wasting time on mundane tasks that aren’t bring you joy, and can’t make you money, the answer is yes. Your time get be so much better spent by handing off the jobs on your to-do list that aren’t in your zone of genius. After all, not just anyone can do your job, so why are you doing the things that other people could do for you?
Imagine, hiring someone who can handle your to-do list with care, and make sure you are satisfied with their work. Picture someone managing the particulars, doing all the research on your behalf and wading through reviews to find you the perfect vendors for everything from dining to copy machines. You don’t have time to be on the phone waiting for the cable guy to get back to you, let alone hunt for a new lawn care company. Your concierge can handle all of this and more, based on the criteria you ask for.
While your concierge is handling most of your daily tasks, you can begin enjoying your time off, and maybe even focus more on your family and friends, and of course your business. With their help, your availability and possibilities become endless.
Did you know? Research shows you’ll do better work if you take more downtime.
What are you waiting for?
Time is the one thing you can never get back. So what are you waiting for? Lifestyle management services can be a big help for anyone. Whether you are a busy professional who has many irons in the fire, or you are just someone who wishes there was more time in each day, it’s a good bet that you can benefit from a lifestyle manager.
An hour at the grocery store here, an hour looking for a new internet provider there, four hours sitting at the auto care company waiting on your oil to be changed – what would getting all of that time do for you? Imagine, regaining all that time to spend on the things that give you joy and make you money. If saving time appeals to you, then you should definitely hire a lifestyle manager.
It all comes down to these two things: how much do you think your time is worth and much of it do you spend on things someone else could do. Once you answer this, you can see the potential of what having a personal concierge can do for you personally and for your business.
You owe it to yourself, your family, and your business to hire a lifestyle management company
