Personal Assistant Reviews

What is it like working as a Personal Assistant?
Personal Assistant in Glasgow:
"Busy But Fun!"
Pros: I like that you start your day having an idea of what you are going to do and that can change the minute you walk in the door as you are faced with different scenarios. I like being challenged and kept busy but also making my boss's day run smoothly.
Cons: When things don't go according to plan or if you are let down at the last minute.
