My path to productivity
I figured out what Fancy Hands was and in an instant my life changed, a little. We’re not talking I’ll-tell-my-grandkids-about-this changed, but still. It was big.
You see, Fancy Hands is a personal assistant application. Their motto is, 'Do what you love, we’ll do the rest.' You pay a monthly fee to have access to a set number of requests, and then you tell them what you need done, and an assistant somewhere (they're all U.S.-based) will make it happen. You enter your requests through their website or through the iPhone or Android app.
It’s that simple.
You’re thinking, 'but I don’t need an assistant.' Of course you do. In the past two months, Fancy Hands assistants have spent 166 minutes on the phone on my behalf. Almost 2.8 hours.

They’ve placed 85 calls:
- calling my doctor
- finding me products at the store
- haggling with online merchants to send me my items faster
- making sure sites will ship to Canada
- making me reservations
Not to mention the internet research:
- finding me gift ideas for friends
- researching case studies for my work
- researching management techniques to make me a better boss (well, they did what they could…)
- researched and priced honeymoon ideas
- and so many more things
I can’t begin to calculate what this has saved me, not just in time, or money, but stress. I’m a worrier. I stress about things like phone calls and to-do items. Fancy Hands takes that away.
Because I’m not just a worrier, I also have a horrible, horrible memory. So my life is a hilarious combination of being convinced I’ve forgotten something absolutely crucial, at all times.
Fancy Hands has given me a piece of my life back, or perhaps one I never really had."
Thanks for the thanks, Joel! We're happy to hear how much your Fancy Hands assistants are helping to simplify your life!
