A friend told me about fancy hands so I decided to check the site out. Signed up for the five task plan. Used those up within 24 hours so upgraded then upgraded again a week later. The assistants have done excellent work for me on tasks ranging from making an appt with the cable company to finding new recipes for Thanksgiving to finding a good moving company. Quick, efficient, effective. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders since all those pesky tasks in the back of mind are getting taken care of.
Amazing service and great PAs
I just finished my first month and I am blown away. I was very concerned that I won't find enough things to "delegate" since a lot of what I do needs specific knowledge but I've forced to think outside the box and have come up with ways of saving time that I didn't think was possible. The PAs I've dealt with have all been sharp, fast and went out of their way to help. I've saved so much time and will probably be upgrading from the basic plan to the next one up.
Excellent service. Saves you time and money.
I've been trying out Fancy Hands for the last couple of weeks. Although this is a simple and well written app, the best thing about Fancy Hands is the service it provides. I've already gone through all 5 tasks in my basic plan. It is incredibly satisfying to open a request, forget about it, go about your day as usual, and come back to find what you needed done already done!
