November 16, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Santa’s helpers are just a phone call or email away! People can actually enjoy this holiday season more by giving their “to-do list” to a business that assists people with handling their day-to-day tasks, reducing stress and making life more manageable. A Single Ray of Hope is a Personal Assistant & Concierge Service serving the Portage/Kalamazoo, Michigan area. They provide quality, personalized assistance for time-starved individuals, families and businesses. A Single Ray of Hope helps clients “Reclaim Their Time” which allows them to focus their time and energy on what they truly want to do.

The holiday season is upon us and the tension is building. The stressors of decorating, shopping, wrapping, errands, shipping packages, holiday cards, baking, party planning, and other to-do items cause anxiety for most of us. During this time of the year there is so much to do and not enough time to get it all done. A Single Ray of Hope can be viewed as Santa’s helpers who can help take care of all the busy work so people can have more meaningful holidays with family and friends. They offer many other services such as “Gift of Time” gift certificates, travel booking, house and pet sitting, and even scrapbooking family memories.

Mary Beth Esquibel, business owner of A Single Ray of Hope, speaks from her experience as a mother who worked full-time outside the home. Esquibel stated, “Like most people, I was burning the candle at both ends carrying stress from home to work and back again. This was not healthy but is typical in today’s modern life. The concierge industry has emerged in recent years and is now available to help time-stressed, every day people.” Esquibel shared that Personal Assistant & Concierge Services are intended to help others at all times of the year. Too often, women are busy taking care of others and they don’t have time or energy left for their self. Throw in the holiday season and you’ll find a sure recipe for exhaustion, stress induced ailments, and frustration.

Clients of A Single Ray of Hope say this business is making a positive difference. One client said, “Hiring A Single Ray of Hope was a great personal gift that allowed me to relax and I could enjoy our special event because I knew they had everything under control.” Esquibel believes that life is too short to be stressed and we need to put more enjoyment back into the holidays.”
