When Dave was in the midst of a divorce and becoming the primary caregiver for his six children, a friend of his recommended he connect with Call Sheilah! to talk about the situation and try to sort out immediate priorities and tasks. Even though Sheilah was a complete stranger to him at the time, Dave said, “She’s very disarming. She set me immediately at ease.” Following their first meeting, Sheilah was able to help Dave with the process of researching, interviewing and ultimately hiring a nanny. Dave told us he could sense right away that Call Sheilah! was “totally capable” and he felt completely comfortable in having the help navigating this sensitive, and at times stressful, set of tasks.
Throughout the process, Dave wanted Call Sheilah! to help coordinate all the logistics and details of researching and selecting a nanny and to be plugged in at the key points of the process to make final decisions. He was relieved that Call Sheilah! could provide that level of service impeccably. “Sheilah has a good intuitive sense and capability to do whatever it is she’s tackling- from the minutia, to the profound,” he told us when chatting about his experience. He said he really appreciated not having to micromanage the process, and that facilitation of the new hire was able to happen in a tight timeframe.
While Dave was impressed with the level of professional service Call Sheilah! was able to provide, he said what really has stayed with him is how Sheilah helped him take an objective look at his situation and pinpoint what he needed. He told us that, “she captured the spirit of what we were trying to do and helped me frame in my mind what I needed to do. She told me, ‘What you’re trying to do is make sure that when you’re home you’re spending that time being the best father you can.’ Words like that really hang with you.”
We couldn’t be happier that Dave was referred to us at a time when he wasn’t sure where to turn or what exactly he needed and that we could provide a service that felt positive, professional and affirming for him. Dave told us he has referred others to use Call Sheilah! and even bought a co-worker a gift card when she needed some assistance planning her wedding. It’s these types of stories and relationships that we think set Call Sheilah! apart- at the core of everything we do, we care tremendously about making life more manageable for people. We hope you’ll give us a call if there’s ever anything we can provide as you go through changes, no matter how big or small.
Give us a call, even if you aren't sure if your project or challenge is in our wheelhouse. Chances are, it is!
