Executive and Personal Assistant

Are you an entrepreneur’s secret weapon?

If so, this position might be of interest to you.

I’m looking for an executive assistant to help me on my purpose. Every day I wake up to find ways to inspire children to learn. I publish children’s books that challenge conventional thinking, and I love what I do. But I can’t do it alone – I’m an organizational disaster – I need help so that I can be effective in my quest.

You are the type of person who can handle all logistics, coordination, administration and minor finance activities of our publishing activities. Handling coordination and administration aspects of our activities, from marketing initiatives to contract administration is no biggie for you. Where I might struggle with these, for you, they are second nature.  You are also keen to research new topics for the benefit of the company.

You are an expert in helping me save time, whether it is following up with suppliers, or handling that niggling personal errand.  Nothing phases you.

If you would like to explore this opportunity further, I would love to hear from you. In addition to your resume, please jot me a note to let me know how you got your start as an administrative or executive assistant, and what you think is possible from this type of role.

I look forward to hearing from you!
