Help Wanted: When Managing Your Home Requires a Full-Time Hire – WSJ Aug. 22, 2019

Imagine your house is a company—and you’re the CEO. Your business partner(spouse) complains of cost overruns. The warehouse (garage) roof leaks. A branch office (beach house) is closing for the season. And shareholders (the children) need pricey equipment (laptops) for the new fiscal year.

This is for you if you:

  • Are not sure what you need, but you know you need something.
  • Have staff, but things are not running smoothly.
  • Have a big life and you don’t know where to begin.
  • Have had a recent change of circumstances (inheritance, just got into the big leagues) and need help adjusting to your new normal.
  • Need to downsize.
  • Want your homes well-run with an eye toward asset conservation.
  • Need better processes and protection. You’re not sure where you’re at with payroll, tax compliance, legal liabilities, insurance, etc.
  • Had a lawsuit and/or want to avoid lawsuits.
  • Are not sure if you’re too lenient or too strict, and you sometimes feel taken advantage of by your staff.
  • Want to save money on payroll (but still be legal and fair) and need someone to review your staffing; scheduling, payroll and compensation.
  • Want to keep a better eye on household expenses.
  • Want happy employees and a happy home.
  • Are willing to listen, learn and take expert advice – even when it is uncomfortable.
  • Want to make sure your home is safe and your family is protected – no matter what.

This is not for you if you:

  • Are unwilling to make changes.
  • Are comfortable being a victim
  • Think everything is someone else’s fault.
  • Are often mean or vindictive.
  • Have unrealistic expectations.
  • Engage in illegal or unethical behavior.
  • Are a whack-a-doodle (you know who you are.) We still may be able to help, but you have to be willing to let us.
