Give her your list, consider it done

Rosie Young

Personal concierge service can handle anything

By Small Business Expert Roger Pierce, www.BizLaunch.com

There just aren’t enough hours in the day. Wouldn’t it be nice to get some help at home or work to complete your task list? “We enable our clients to spend more time on the more important things in their lives,” comments entrepreneur Rosie Young.

Young owns Rosie Young Concierge (www.rosieyoungconcierge.com,) a unique concierge service catering to busy families and individuals.

For clients requesting personal concierge assistance, Young will handle tasks such as grocery shopping, event planning, gift giving, pet management and automotive maintenance. If you’re going away on vacation and worried about your home, she’ll stop by to water your plants, pick up your mail and check on things.

Her executive concierge services include schedule management, office organizing, meeting and planning, supplier research and interviewing, business travel planning, and running business errands.

“Our executive service is geared towards busy professionals and small business owners who need a helping hand without the burden of hiring additional staff,” explains Young.

Young believes people crave a dependable, reliable person to help them manage their lives. “Imagine having someone you could trust 100 percent and call on an as-needed basis,” she says. “My clients have enough things to worry about, so we make sure the job will be done in a timely fashion and done right.”

“I tell them, ‘give me your list and consider it done.’”

While there are other personal concierge services in the marketplace, Young differentiates her business by offering a one-stop shop. “Whatever it is, I will take care if it,” she claims. “Organizing a summer dinner party, de-cluttering households, selling unwanted things, picking up the kids from school…we do it all.”

Since launching four years ago, Young says she’s learned to wear many hats. “Most business owners must multi-task marketing, management and finance responsibilities, but in my business I must do all of those things plus deliver a very diverse range of client services,” she comments.

“Every day is different. I love problem solving and am very organized and creative, so the chance to apply those skills in my business excites me.”

  1. This article brings up an interesting question, her business is four years old, but the site is ranked rather low by Google and Alexa.com standards for a company of that age. So the question is, focus on getting customers and let the site alone or focus on both, with other blogs, Facebook, and other postings. Thoughts.ThanksSam Maropishttp://ChartingDreams.com

  3. @chartingdreams – I think the more important question to ask is – what is she doing to get results and is the business profitable? Having a top google ranking is nice if that's where you want a lot of business from, but there's something to be said about the power of word of mouth marketing. I'm consulting with a client at the moment and we had the same discussion – “where does your website fit in your overall marketing strategy?” and the same can be asked of social media. There are very successful businesses that exist that don't use either.

  4. Great idea! love it.
