Celebrities Aren't the Only Ones Who Can Have Personal Assistants

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - Run Around Betties, a company that offers convenient affordable personal assistance for your home and office, makes the benefits of having a personal assistant available and affordable to everyone, a not just A-list celebrities and top-level executives. Overwhelmed professionals or busy entrepreneurs can book their "Betty" with a phone call or few keystrokes online via www.runaroundbetties.com. Launched in 2011, the company recently expanded their services to the Orange County area with hopes of growing even further down the coast in the coming months.

"Run Around Betties makes finding a personal assistant and having a personal assistant as easy, affordable, and convenient as possible," said President and founder Michelle McCloskey. "No matter what the task is, from having simple errands run or to finding an administrative superstar, Run Around Betties has a Betty who can do the job."

For as little as $25 an hour, Run Around Betties offers a fresh take on finding and having your own assistant. Run Around Betties does not just assign Betties based on availability or proximity. Betties are booked based on each client's specific needs and requirements -- whether it is knowing certain software or equipment, loving a work environment supervised by a client's bull mastiff, or knowing the best way to fold fitted sheets so they stack beautifully in a reorganized linen closet. Run Around Betties takes the time to get to know clients and to find them their perfect Betty. 

Not only does Run Around Betties spare clients the hassle of placing ads and going through the hiring, screening, and fee negotiating process, but its affordable rates, weekly invoicing, and online payments make having an assistant as easy as shopping online. Every Betty is screened, background-checked (including driving records), and fully insured, and each of them is also required to sign a comprehensive confidentiality agreement that applies to all client interactions. Run Around Betties handles all necessary tax reporting, so there's no need to worry about filing year-end 1099s or other tax obligations. 

Clients include producers, busy executives, families, lawyers, and real estate agents, and the company serves the Greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas.

Businesses around the Southland are taking note. "I love the concept of Run Around Betties and it really works for me," said Joe Nicoletti. "Since I'm a small business owner with a business that ebbs and flows from manageable to hectic, hiring a Betty is the perfect solution for my business rather than full time support."

"While some agencies require a 4 hour minimum, Run Around Betties only requires we book for one hour which is great for me and my business," said Claire Ragge, owner, The Gaslite. "When I need a task done at my home or even at my bar, I know I can always rely on a Betty to get the job done."
