Time Genie

Time Genie

The purpose of Time Genie is to provide Personal Concierge and Errand Services. This boils down to doing stuff for busy people. The scope of this work is wide, my objectives are to streamline tasks to include:
– helping elderly people stay in their own homes, by providing companionship, assisting with tasks such as washing, preparation of meals, etc
– Assisting people who are downsizing from a large to a small house or going into a retirement village. Helping to decide what needs to be got rid of and then supporting by listing on Trade Me, taking stuff to charity shops etc
– Providing cover for people who manage their own Airbnb so that they can get away on holiday themselves.

Why this Project is of benefit to Kapiti: Time Genie is aimed at busy people – many of whom commute into Wellington daily. Having been a commuter myself I know how jobs get left undone because you are away from home for a long day. This also applies to people who have elderly relatives living in Kapiti but don’t have the time to provide them with the support they need.

Key Stakeholders: Commuters, Local retirement villages, Airbnb owners, Networking groups such as Chamber of Commerce, Kapiti Now, Venus, BNI.

Skill / Funding Gap: I have a teaching and Public Health background. I am well organised, efficient and capable. If I am not able to help a client myself, I have excellent research skills to find someone who can. I do not require funding.

I welcome the opportunity to introduce my relatively new business to the KEDA group and extended network.
