Certain times in life can be achingly painful — a bitter divorce, a lost loved one, a dying parent.
That’s where Anne comes in. She helps clients through life’s tough transitions.
With her steady head and gracious heart, Anne helps make her clients’ experiences less traumatic, helps them understand options and get organized, guides them through the process, and acts as their personal advocate and confidant — all while working around their schedules to make things easier and less stressful. When her clients first come to her, they often feel defeated, scared, unsure, overwhelmed and uniformed. But after about three to four weeks with Anne, they are more confident, emotionally stable and secure. They have an easier time accepting their situation — and they feel organized and able to plan for the future.
Anne makes it her mission to fight for her people, and she’s tough about it because she’s been there.
After the passing of her own grandmother in another town, Anne realized how complicated it was to handle the estate. “Probating the will, as well as handling medical, banking, credit, insurance, notifications, closing out service providers, rerouting mail, liquidating assets and clearing out her home all needed to be done in a timely manner,” says Anne, who found it extremely hard to be away. “Having experienced a long-distance transition such as this, I think it is very valuable and helpful to have a local resource whom you can trust to execute and deliver in times of losing a loved one.”
Thus, the TaskAnne business was born.
TaskAnne helps people manage “the journey” of transition through divorce, separation, or loss of a loved one by becoming a personal advocate and resource to execute organization and time management, to reduce risk associated with communication, to alleviate stress and worry, to stay on track, and to move on to the next phase in life. It’s like having a support system at every turn.
Need to get organized to face hard times and deadlines? There’s Anne. Need help finding a place to live temporarily? There’s Anne. Need someone you can trust to get things done? There’s Anne. Need to vent about your stress? Anne’s there, too.
When it comes to finding someone to be in your corner, Anne will stop at nothing to fight for you, even if that means being available at all hours. “My clients think nothing of calling me every day, at all hours – 6:00 a.m., midnight, 1:00 in the morning, on my birthday, on vacation,” says Anne. “They call if they’re upset, have something they ‘need to run by me right then’, want to ask me a question, etc. And I answer. Every time. That is a big part of my service. Being available when they need me.”
Because her previous clients give her rave reviews, you may be wondering if it’s the right fit for you. “I do it cheaper, faster, and better. My rates are lower than other resources,” affirms Anne, who works around a client’s schedule to maximize time and efficiency, so that their careers and lifestyles have minimal interruption. Because of her own real-life experience handling hard situations, she has perfected the processes and preparations needed to mobilize during rough times. “I save clients over 80 percent of the costs of getting organized and prepared,” says Anne, who has also saved several clients over $50,000 (each!) in fees and expenses.
A True Story
Case in point: One of Anne’s recent clients was going through a divorce and hired Anne to help throughout the process. Anne took care of all the tasks necessary to get back on track, including moving and securing a furnished, safe child-friendly place to live; researching resources; putting processes in place to ensure immediate transition; and organizing documents. The result? By working with Anne and an amazing legal team, the client gained back custody of the children and was able to move to another state — all in under just 6 and a half weeks.
What Her Clients Say
Testimonial: “After hiring legal counsel to file my complaint for divorce, I quickly realized that I was nowhere prepared for the enormous undertaking needed to gather and organize information for my attorney. I was in unfamiliar territory not only with the journey I was about to take, but the language, format and compliance of all the requests and processes.
“Anne made things as painless as possible by working around my practice hours and minimizing valuable time away from work and home. Anne not only helped me to develop a clear understanding of the process, she was instrumental in having me prepared to work with my attorney to ensure cost-effective, productive meetings.
“In addition to allowing for optimizing my time management, Anne saved me approximately 80 percent of the costs of getting organized and prepared and was a huge help in mitigating risk associated with communication between myself and my spouse.
“Being a father of four children, home life transition as well as asset division and move management, were all majors areas of concern as well. Anne was able to facilitate and manage these tasks which resulted in alleviating a lot of stress, worry, and disruption.
“Anne is an amazing advocate, coach and organizer who cares about helping people. I completely trust Anne and strongly recommend her to anyone.”
Testimonial: “Anne has helped me through my pre and post-divorce actions and transitions for the past 7 years. Having been through this process herself, Anne knows first-hand about the fears, concerns, and tasks needed to be done surrounding these types of transitions.
“Organizing information, planning, and coordinating for next steps was overwhelming and time consuming. Working with Anne helped tremendously with taking the edge off and getting things in order, so I could be better prepared to start over in life as well as make the necessary adjustments along the way.
“Not only is Anne the most trustworthy person I know, she has an impeccable work ethic and made me feel taken care of throughout my transitions.”
Joan, Independent Professional
Testimonial: “Shortly after my divorce was final, I needed help in managing my transition to my new home, asset division with my ex-husband, household organization, and prep for potential arbitration in support of enforcing settlement agreement issues.
“I did not have the time to carry out the necessary tasks needed to complete my transition and Anne was willing to work around my schedule so my attention to my business was not disrupted. Working with Anne alleviated a lot of stress associated with my transition and assured me that things were done in a professional, timely, efficient, cost-effective manner.
“Anne is someone you can trust who provides the necessary knowledge, experience, organization, and execution needed when starting over in life.”
