Passion Is Just the First Step
 
Passion Is Just the First Step

Not everyone’s passion is to be a doctor or a lawyer. Some people’s passion is being the best nanny a family could ask for. Some love being able to keep a home spotless and organized. There are those that enjoy cooking wonderful meals for a family. Passion has many colors for different people. Have you thought what your passion is? Have you taken steps to make that passion a daily thing you perform? I meet many people that love working with children as a nanny. Although they love being around the children, they have not taken the extra steps that [ Read the rest…]

 
If only Employers of “Personal Service Staff” would be clear about their expectations and the job…..what a wonderful world it would be????
 
If only Employers of “Personal Service Staff” would

I’ve found the majority of my clients have learned ways of making tons of money, but along with this comes the “Frankenstein”…… the 15,000 + sq ft house or apartment, the 2nd and 3rd (many times more) properties. Boats, planes and a fleet of cars. But these are still family units, with the same basic needs of all families, compounded now with complications of all the toys mentioned above. It’s a “monster” resulting from hard work, success & choice of lifestyle. Now eight or more bathrooms need cleaning, four or more beds need to be stripped and made. Thousands of [ Read the rest…]

 
How to Deal With Rejection
 
How to Deal With Rejection

Rejection! We have all been through it. No one escapes this sometimes painful situation. Many people take rejection and say to themselves “Hey that’s just the way it goes.” Others take it like a quick sting. They feel it and then they eventually heal. Then there are those that simply cannot deal with rejection. They become depressed or angry. Rejection varies in size. How you deal with it tells a lot about your spirit. Personally, I know a lot about rejection. My passion is acting. I’ve been going out on auditions for years now. Do I make them all? No. [ Read the rest…]

 
Country Star Sings to His 93yr Old Nanny
 
Country Star Sings to His 93yr Old Nanny

Often times we hear all the stories about how clients treat their household staffing horribly. Its nice to know that some people care and realize how important their domestic caretakers are. Treat them kindly. Kris Kristofferson sang his classic “Why Me” for a very special audience — of one — this week. The country legend was in Texas for Willie Nelson’s annual Fourth of July picnic, and also paid a visit to his former nanny: 93-year-old Juanita Cantu, who helped raise Kristofferson and his siblings in Brownsville, Texas.

What Alice from ‘The Brady Bunch’ would earn today

We all know the beloved show “The Brady Bunch”. At least I do and I may be dating myself here. Who did not love Alice? Ever wonder what she was getting paid? Ever wonder what she would be paid now? This article from the Market Watch gives us a clue. Now keep in mind it is from 2014, so the rate is probably slightly higher. Few American families are lucky enough to have an Alice, the live-in maid from “The Brady Bunch,” and with good reason: She’d cost a fortune. While the sitcom portrayed an all-American family at the tail [ Read the rest…]

 
What Do Employers Really Want?
 
Performability - What do employers want

What do employers really want? I’ll call it “performability.” It’s a bit difficult to pin down, yet easy to spot in the people around you. I’m defining it this way. Performability is the ability to get the job done no matter what, without causing any stress, confusion, communication problems, or conflict. The person who has it doesn’t rock the boat, and works with others in a way that creates a healthy work environment. Performability always trumps likability. It means this is someone who can be trusted, who won’t complain, and who knows how to streamline. It’s important because it’s all [ Read the rest…]

 
Handling Negative Reviews
 
Handling Negative Reviews

If you have a business that deals with the public there is a great possibility that one day you will get a bad review. YIKES! It happens. You cannot please everyone. How do you handle them? Do you address every single one? Researching, I found that there are some companies that totally ignore any bad review they receive and some answer every single one. As a small company, we have the ability to answer any we receive when time permits. The easy ones are when it was totally our fault. When this happens, we can clearly address the issue; take [ Read the rest…]

 
“Mr. Church” and all Unsung Hero’s
 
Mr. Church” and all Unsung Hero’s

The Tribeca Film Festival had two films that dealt with domestic workers. One, Untouchable which was a documentary about a Nanny that sexually abused a child (which I did not see) and Mr. Church a true story of a personal chef and his relationship with his principal (which I did see). While, one shows a negative side of a household employee, the other shows a side that is far less talked about. So often we see articles that show a dark side of domestic workers, from a Nanny sleeping with the husband to the housekeeper stealing expensive jewelry, to a [ Read the rest…]

I Am Top Notch! Says Who? | Greenhouse Staffing Agency

So you call us to let us know that you are a high profile Chef with royal experience and top notch clients. We say “Great! Please send your resume for review.” You say, you want to speak to someone about your wonderful qualifications and that a piece of paper does not define you.

Well Mr. High Profile, the real candidates have resumes that reflect their high profile and top notch-ism (yes, I made that word up). The real ones know [ Read the rest…]

You Waited 20 Minutes We Apologize! | Greenhouse Agency

Every now and then, we get behind. Yes, there will be more than 10 people that showed up around the same time. There will be a candidate that cannot seem to find their way to the address provided and we have to help them. There may be a client that calls to discuss a trial, a new job order, or even a replacement. Sometimes we are very busy and get behind on interviews.
