What You'll Get
Today’s Groupon is a giant eraser for the sloppy, chaotic dry-erase board of your life. For $49, you’ll get three hours worth of personal-assistant services from Your Personal Concierge, a $147 value. The experienced errand-achievers (who have serviced high-profile celebs and wealthy execs) are like interns for your life, skillfully performing your tiresome to-do list so you can focus on less irksome activities such as picking out wedding rings and finalizing divorces.
After baking under fluorescent lighting in a confined cubicle all week, you understand that opportunities to see daylight are limited. Instead of spending these rare, sunshine-filled seconds in line at the post office or deli inside the post office, soak up your daily dosage of vitamin D with friends.
Founder Lisa A. Barnett and her team of taskmasters (each has a bachelors degree or higher from a top-accredited university) ambitiously approach your most dreaded errands with zest. Have them help you with grocery shopping, dry cleaning, waiting for the cable man, and more—you’re left to enjoy guilt-free free time and the fun responsibility of checking off accomplished duties, giving you enough extra free time to finally create that list of to-do lists to do. Your Personal Concierge will fully refund any dissatisfied client.
With the holidays approaching, your list of errands gets longer, the days get shorter, and work gets busier. Get this Groupon and have your personal assistant handle holiday headaches like illuminating your house, licking 2,000 holiday cards, or constructing a Santa beard out of shredded newspapers and wood glue. If you’re motivated by the season of giving, this Groupon is a thoughtful parental present to pay back your folks for all the time they lost shuffling you to band practice, dance class, and city hall.
Note: Your Personal Concierge clients are billed 60 cents per mile for any errand that requires more than five miles of travel. Please read its policies here.

To Serve at the Pleasure of the Queen
It would be great to live like royalty for a day with your own personal assistant. Real royals, however, don't have just one personal assistant, but many. Here are just some of the many assistants who serve the Queen of England:
- Personal Food Taster: This position is usually given to a plucky orphan until a pluckier, less poisoned orphan can be found.
- Personal Paintball Instructor: A largely ceremonial position, he or she assists with Her Majesty’s many paintball-related duties, including the traditional paintballing of a Christmas goose.
- Personal Shoe Put-On-Er: Only hired so the Queen can feel sassy each morning as she says, “I can put on my own dang shoes!”
- Personal Problem Child: So that she could live out her screenplay for Problem Child 4: A Royal Problem, the Queen hired original Problem Child actor Michael Oliver, now 28, to live with her and be incorrigible.
