Many people ask themselves, what is a personal assistant? We constantly hear stories in the mainstream media about personal assistants and their celebrity bosses, but rarely get a glimpse into the world of personal assistant jobs. Celebrity PA Brian Daniel is changing all that with his new book “The Celebrity Personal Assistant Survival Guide,” which is the first of its kind. This ebook puts the reader right into the life of a personal assistant with interactive hyperlinks to photos and video of life on the job.
Brian Daniel, now a celebrity personal assistant headhunter for the world’s rich and famous, wrote the book to meet the demand of aspiring personal assistants. And because there has been an explosion of the super wealthy in America, there seems to be no stopping the trend. It may be hard to believe, but there are over 9 million millionaires in the United States, and about 50,000 households that have net worth between 50 and 500 million dollars. Additionally, there are now over 1,200 billionaires in the world. What that all means for aspiring personal assistants is that the need for “Lifestyle Managers” is unprecedented.
While it may be true that the world is in a recession, the main segment impacted is that of the middle class. Virtually all of the high-end segments from mega-mansions to private jets is going strong, so for those interested in changing careers, the personal assistant industry may be the right calling for you.
Daniel’s “Survival Guide” is perfect for beginning or veteran assistants because of its broad scope and subject matter. The book covers all the basics and the most advanced must-know angles to the business: how to find personal assistant jobs and how to get resumes to decision-makers are among the most popular chapters. For those of us who would like to know how the richest 1% lives, then this book is a perfect glimpse because drinking $30,000 bottles of wine while wearing $250,000 jeans while flying in $100,000,000 private 747 jets seems to be the order of the day.
