Job Description

First, a brief and overly simplified summary of my current position in life. I have lived in Knoxville, TN now for close to 25 years. I currently reside in a neighborhood called Sequoyah Hills. I have been a single parent for nearly 15 years. I have 2 children. An 18 year old daughter, and a 16 year old son. My daughter is a senior at WHS. She will be attending the University in the fall. My son is a sophomore, also in High School. Both children make excellent grades and, considering they are teenagers, are well behaved. I have also been working in the lumber industry for over 30 years. And in 2002, not long before being awarded full custody of my 2 children, I decided to go out on my own and start a niche oriented ‘specialty lumber’ wholesale distribution company. I have been fortunate in that my business has grown and prospered during that time. One significant goal that I established for this company from the beginning was to attain ‘debt free’ status. That goal was reached last year, and as a result, has made possible new and exciting opportunities for me and my family.

As a result, I have decided to refocus several of my life’s goals and objectives, and I believe the first step going forward is to hire a personal assistant. Up until a few years ago, raising my children required live-in Nannie’s, primarily because my work required frequent overnight travel. However, my travel requirements became more manageable, and the children reached the age where they were responsible enough to be on their own for days at a time. Therefore, I have never had a ‘personal assistant’, and would be open to suggestions concerning what they can offer. But for now, I’m envisioning someone who can provide me with 2 primary services.

One would be to handle small errands and household chores outside of routine house cleaning. Examples would be: • Reorganizing and decorating rooms • Organizing unused and outgrown clothes for charitable donations • Selecting and locating household plants • Grocery shopping (although I actually enjoy both the shopping and preparing/cooking of good healthy food) • Keeping household bills organized The second responsibility would be as a type of coordinator involving larger projects. Examples would be: • Securing a house cleaning service(s) • Having the soapstone countertops resealed • Having the hardwood floors refinished • Selecting a landscaping/lawn service • Shopping indoor and outdoor painting contractors • Arranging travel plans These are some of the responsibilities I would like managed. I am willing and capable of paying whatever the market demands for this job to be done right. If interested, and you feel that you’re capable, please sible. Please include a current and verifiable resume along with a recent picture. Sincerely, Tom
