About You
You've been the dedicated personal assistant to a CEO, celebrity, politician, or a high-profile person for whom the line between their business and personal lives is often blurred. This is not your first rodeo. You have deep experience working as someone's personal handler.

You know how to own the details of someone else's life so they can focus on other things. You have a strong drive to master and complete any and all assignments. You're impatient, react quickly, and can juggle tasks. Even so, you have a strong attention to detail and prefer a high degree of structure. You can handle ambiguity. You navigate shifting priorities, deadlines, or goals with the skills of a veteran whitewater rafter. You are goal oriented. Nothing stands between you and what needs to be done. You pursue goals objectively and don't let emotions (yours or someone else's) distract you. You actively look for new projects or institute change. Anticipation is your superpower. You get stuff done.
