Creating Satisfied Clients
“Oh, you are the best!” is the response Busy as a Bee owner Minnie Aikens recently received from her client, Lilicia Bailey. On her recent move to Winston-Salem, Ms. Bailey hired Minnie and her highly trained staff to assist her with the move. Minnie and her team unpacked, set up and organized Ms. Bailey’s home just as if she had never moved at all. This type of personal assistance service is one of the many concierge services that Busy as a Bee offers. Minnie is especially excited about expanding the personal assistant service within her business.
Providing Assistance When Most Needed
“I was hesitant at first to engage assistance with my move,” says Ms. Bailey. “I thought I could handle it on my own, but after a consultation with Minnie, I realized that I would benefit from her high level of professionalism. I was blown away by the phenomenal job Minnie and her quality team did for me! I walked into a completely ready, organized home. I was impressed with the organizational details such as not only were my clothes color coordinated in my closet, but also my sheets color coordinated in my linen closet. Minnie arranged for a decorator to hang my art and mirrors, for staff to unpack and organize my belongings, as well as for a move in ready cleaning service. She is very resourceful.”
Offering Many Valuable Services
Busy as a Bee has been offering concierge services to clients in the area since 2008. Minnie started the business because she has a passion for helping others and is detailed oriented with a penchant for organization. Busy as a Bee personal assistant services include tasks relating to home and family, home management, errands, shopping, service provider recommendations, appointment scheduling, moving and relocation services, holiday and event coordination and waiting services for furniture deliveries, repairmen or cable technicians.
Anticipating Client Needs
Minnie loves getting to know her clients and learning what is important to them so she can expedite what needs to be done to make their lives run smoothly. “I love not just doing the errand or task at hand, but looking beyond that to see what else needs doing so that I can offer the client that extra personalized service,” says Minnie. Examples might be when checking on the home, bringing in fresh cut flowers from the yard to decorate the kitchen counter, or checking on and changing batteries in any household items. Or, knowing that a client has had a particularly challenging day, shopping for her favorite candy and creating a gift bag of goodies to surprise her. Minnie and her staff enjoy providing details within their personal assistant services that the client doesn’t even realize she needs! “Minnie has learned my needs and anticipates them, helping me to do my day to day work without having to do the extra job of keeping things running smoothly in my home life,” says Ms. Bailey.
Serving Both Men and Women
Most of Busy as a Bee’s personal assistant clients are currently women, but the services are equally valuable to busy men. The team at Busy as a Bee is dedicated to providing individualized, valuable services to ease the stress in their busy clients’ lives. The team includes small business owners as well as retired professionals who enjoy a second career of helping others succeed.
