You Don't Have To Do It All Yourself





 My late husband did all the checking, accounting and record keeping.

Why not? He was a Wharton School graduate. 

 This is how I balanced my checkbook.


In our 47 years of marriage, we never had a late payment. 

It all had to be done but it did not all have to be done by me!


By hiring a bookkeeper/ personal organizer, I have delegated the following tasks.... mail, expense tracking, filing and taxes for the accountant.

This is a great service that I suggest to my Classic Clients who need help with bills and paper organizing.

Sure beats doing it all yourself.

What do you delegate?
