"Hi Michelle, I just wanted to send a note to say that it is such a pleasure to work with Sheri Rahman. My schedule has been bananas this month and she has been just so on top of it. She's attentive to detail, thoughtful in her responses, and her positive energy comes through over email. Working with her has made me more effective at my job and in turn helped improve my company. If you or she every need an endorsement, please think of me."

"Haley in 2 weeks has helped me to get both personal and work items off the back burner and complete, I feel like I am finally on top of all the open items from my todo list and together we address them. I already feel comfortable handing her off to my important contacts knowing that she will take care of whatever needs to be done. Please consider me a happy client."

"I’m on my second month with Squared Away and wish I had done this sooner! My biggest hesitation was feeling like I wouldn’t have time to delegate tasks to my assistant. After the first two weeks, I realized my biggest issue was needing more hours with my assistant! Michelle put it this way, “As long as it’s not doing your taxes or coding a website, they can do anything you need. And if they ever get stuck, they have the entire Squared Away network to tap into. Our community is our power.”
In the beginning, I started with research-based tasks like how to get health insurance for employees, what’s the cheapest custom frame option online, and what shows are happening in NYC while I’m there. Then, I added her to my inbox and had her pay bills, contractors, and help me with budgets. At this point, every decision I make, the first thing I think is, “Can Veronica do this?”The best part is my assistant, Veronica, who is very pro-active.
She’s not afraid to offer up ideas or suggestions. You’re getting what pay for! I feel like I have more space in my brain, and I can focus on things that genuinely only I can do. If you feel like you’re in decision overload and you wish you had more time, then definitely try out Squared Away. I mean, who doesn’t want a personal assistant?"
Director of Operations, Madrona Venture Labs
"I've been meaning to drop you a note about Ashley for a few weeks now. We've all been so blown away by her work.
Ashley is a fantastic member of the MVL team. She works with all the Managing Directors and me, and several of our Partner employees as well. She's responsive, friendly, and positive, and when we throw something brand-new at her, she picks it up quickly and does it well.
I've hired 5-6 EA's for various companies/executives over the years, and Ashley is one of the best EA's I've ever seen. I would recommend her as a full hire for someone in a heartbeat (although not at the moment, because selfishly, we love working with her....). People regularly ask for her when they come in for meetings, because even though she's remote, she makes everything so seamless no one ever picks up on it unless they specifically ask.
I've been preaching the word of SquaredAway to third parties who tell me that Ashley did good work for us in scheduling something or arranging something, and to people who say that they are looking for an EA but don't have time to do the whole listing and interview thing. I don't know if many follow up and contact y'all, but I'm a total convert, and it's largely on the strength of Ashley's performance.
She's amazing. Thank you for having such a great person on the SquaredAway team, and for assigning her to us!"

"Working with Sara and Squared Away has been the best investment I've made in my business and life in a long, long time. I'm amazed at what Sara can get done in just 15 hours a month—and how much time and headspace that work has opened up for me. She has made my life easier in so many ways and I just couldn't be more thrilled to have her on my team. I wish I had worked with Squared Away months ago!"
"Staying sane in a household where both my fiancee and I run our own businesses and we're planning our wedding is only possible because we both have VAs from Squared Away."
