Shorewood Woman Helps People Achieve Goals through Unique Business

"I am still making order out of chaos by reinvention." - John Le Carre

January is well under way and many of us have made resolutions for ourselves that we hope to keep. Most typically resolutions involve behavior modifications that will change our lives for the better; the challenge is finding time within the chaos of everyday life to stick to it.

Regardless of personal goals and resolutions for 2012 one thing is certain: We could all use a little more time. And while there is no known method of manufacturing time, there are some creative options available that can help us manage the time we do have a little better.

Misha Garafalo is the founder and CEO of Handle My Task, a business that helps people save time and get things done. Handle my Task is a concierge service which provides a fresh approach to the business of helping people by specializing in pick up, delivery, errand and transport services.

“We are a one stop shop – which makes us unique, because we do much of what a personal assistant might do,” said Garafalo.

Garafalo started her business in 2010 after she moved to Shorewood from the San Francisco area and became primary caregiver for her grandparents.

“I worked in corporate America and kept getting pulled back in, but I was so tired and I didn’t feel that what I was doing was making a difference,” said Garafalo. “I felt I needed to clone myself in order to not constantly feel behind in my errands.”

Garafalo has created a means for people to better organize their own schedules by delegating tasks to her service. Getting groceries, taking pets to the vet, running other errands related to business or family can all be done for a flat hourly rate, beginning at $20. Garafalo and her team of qualified professionals can be available to anyone who needs to coordinate errands and create more time for the really important things, like spending time with family, or working on resolutions - whatever they may be.

Garafalo’s approach teaches people to work smarter and, as a result, experience less stress and more efficiency in their lives.

“We want people to reassess how they handle tasks for themselves and giving people options is among the greatest thing you can do,” said Garafalo.
