After all, as the founder and CEO of a lifestyle management and personal concierge company catering to the crème-de-la-crème of New York, LA, and Aspen, she’s used the fielding her fair share of formidable requests from wealthy and time starved clients. 

Luckily, now you don’t need to be a rock star, socialite, or millionaire to Consider it Done. In this charming and unique book, she shares her secrets from for accomplishing hundreds of life's most bizarre, off-beat, and yet often inescapable tasks.  Ranging from the unusual but useful, to the seemingly impossible, to the annoying but necessary, these include:
 
 
How to hire a snake dancer for a party within 24 hours notice
How to argue your way out of a speeding ticket
How to get a last-minute table at an impossibly overbooked restaurant
How to find a reputable pet psychic
How to get the best seat on an airplane
How to blow a date
How to fix a hole in the wall
How to get a wedding dress shipped halfway across the world
How to refuse a dare
How to change a tire
How to make a citizen's arrest
How to mix the perfect hangover cure
…and countless more
 
Filled with practical tips, hints and advice as well as hilarious stories of near mishaps, crazy wild goose chases, and outrageous requests from eccentric clients, Consider it Done is sometimes zany, often surprising, and yet always useful. After all, there may come a time when you actually need to know how propose to someone in skywriting, replace a matching spoon from your great-great-great grandmother's antique silver set, or simply make the perfect martini. When that day comes, this essential and completely one-of-a-kind book will be there to walk you through it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. May 16, 2011
Format:Paperback
I didn't really like this book, thankfully I got it from the library. I didn't like the layout, I was expecting bullet points, step by step, sort of that easy/ breezy format usually associated with such books. Also I found some of the content to be in bad taste, although the author has some good very points such as "how to change a tire" or "how to keep your credit card information safe" but she lost me with things like "how to cut in line" (cheat), "how to replace your daughter's deceased pet bunny before she gets home from school" (lie) but what really annoyed me was "how to start a false rumor." Sure the author tries to save herself with "how to beat a false rumor," (and of course she doesn't tell you that you can be sued for defamation of character) but we are living in a time when bulling and spreading rumors is a constant occurrence, all you have to do is read about the Phoebe Prince trial to realize the seriousness of spreading a rumor. Whether in jest or not, teaching someone how to start a rumor is just in bad taste.

3.0 out of 5 stars I could do without the parenting advice February 15, 2011
By Momof2
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are some interesting things in this book and I've enjoyed reading it. However I was not expecting to find parenting advice from a concierge service. Even if I was looking for advice about "How to Get My Kids to Sleep in Their Own Beds", I'd prefer it come without the judgment of the "emotional damage" the author seems to think comes from allowing kids to co-sleep.
Other than that, it was a nice light read, good for passing the time waiting for carpool or at ballet lessons.

I was very disappointed in this book. The author tells you ways to lie and cheat your way through many situations. She calls it "being sneaky". I believe in being honest and having integrity so this book was not for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected March 14, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had seen the book discussed on a talk show it appeared to offer more detail on organization as that is what
was being discussed. I was very disappointed overall in the book.
