How ’24 Hours’ Looks like For a Super Rich Family’s Concierge
 
byran-headshot

A 10,000 square-foot home doesn’t take care of itself, and many of the uber wealthy families who own them don’t want to tend to them either. So they hire people like Bryan Peele to make their homes run like five-star hotels. As an estate manager, he takes care of everything from overseeing landscapers and chefs, to making dinner and travel reservations, to planning lavish events and training the staff how to properly fold napkins for a dinner party. Peele, 44, currently works in the home of a Los Angeles family who made their fortune in finance. And as president of [ Read the rest…]

email

God am I happy to come across this discussion.  It was started in a LinkedIn Group I follow. I passionately implore my colleagues and staff to “just pick up the phone and call.”  This is always after someone has responded about an issue with; Well I sent them an e-mail! Of course all situations are different and e-mails can be best when sending informative and detailed info or data.  Then there are times when where dealing with people who prefer e-mail.  But I’m finding people justify a task not being completed by saying; I did send an e-mail?  I’m not [ Read the rest…]

All was going as good as could be. Julie was being interviewed by Mr. & Mrs. French. The three were chatting for about 45 minutes.

Mr. & Mrs. French had already begun to think about a start date. They liked Julie. They can tell she knew her job, was sincere and liked the questions she had asked. All was going as good as could be. Julie was being [ Read the rest…]

 
The Mariah Carey Interview
 
2015 job seekers guide

Can’t say I know all the details but I do know a job is a job. Which means you follow your boss’s instructions. If avoiding a “motherly nurturing relationship” is the wish of the Mom who’s most probably paying a generous salary?……So be it. I’m in the Domestic/Household Staffing Biz for 30+ years. I’ve seen it all. From what has become apparent, a Nanny working for Mariah Carey must always be sure to constantly remind her/his charges: “Mommy Loves You and will be home very soon.” “I am not your Mommy I work for your family and my job is [ Read the rest…]

 
A Gift of Happiness!
 
happy-face-veer

Today, on my way to work I noticed an advertisement on the subway. It read, “A Gift of Happiness…discover how wisdom brings real satisfaction, gain tools for living life more consciously, and develop the power of attention to fully realize your potential.” In a perfect world, there is a perfect job waiting for you …and just when you need it. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world, at least not all of us. We take positions for different reasons and needless to say these choices might lead us on paths of dormant potentials. 4 years ago I started a [ Read the rest…]
