The client initially needed assistance with getting their own small business in order- from administrative tasks, organizing paperwork and reporting, convening focus groups and setting up an office space, this client needed it all. Call Sheilah! was there every step of the way to get things organized, while also to providing personal concierge services to handle the client’s errands (picking up dry cleaning and shopping for vegan items at the Co Op) as well as downsizing tasks related to a local relocation. In the midst of a miserably cold week in December ’17 we helped get this client ready move into their lovely new apartment where they are now happily settled. We hosted three garage sales during that week. You may recall, that week was often 4 degrees below zero. Not exactly garage sale weather, but super fun and unique and we got the job done.
Since then I’ve been fortunate to be brought in regularly, providing support for an ever-changing range of needs- from staffing a table at the Altamont Fair, supporting a unique arts and crafts venture, and most recently organizing a memorial event for a dearly departed loved one. We helped the client focus their energies elsewhere while we planned logistics, parking, staffing, vendors and all the little details necessary to create a loving and warm memorial service.
I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with this client for over two years, and it’s a relationship that’s helped me grow not just my business, but my own approach to business, the mission of Call Sheilah! and new understanding of my personal mission in taking care of myself in a myriad of ways. This client, and her husband, are truly a gift in my life, and I love owning a business that allows me to meet, work with and support wonderful people all around the region.
