The High Stakes and Highly Personal World of Estate Management: Everything You Need to Know to Successfully Setup a Household
We’ve talked a lot about what it means to support an executive in the business realm, but less has been explored about what it takes to support an executive in the personal realm. We decided it was time to dedicate an entire episode to estate management, so we invited prominent Estate Manager & Personal Assistant, Alicia Myers, to discuss all things estate management and how to successfully set up a personal household. We touch on how to create a household manual and implement a seasonal maintenance checklist, to how to coordinate a design & build project, to how to manage multiple estates and above all, what it takes to support individuals in the public eye who live highly complex, involved and demanding lives. Here’s a teaser for you: it requires resourcefulness, discretion, precision, attentiveness, flexibility and the need to check your personal values and opinions at the door. So, if you’re an Estate Manager looking for best practices from the best of the best or, perhaps, you’re currently a nanny or family assistant who’s curious about the estate management piece, or even an executive assistant interested in transferring to private service, this episode is for you!
