Be the Ultimate Assistant is a must-read for assistants and employers alike! Bonnie's years of experience with Olympia have served to create the ULTIMATE resource for any assistant looking to develop a successful and long-lasting relationship with an employer. An employer myself, this invaluable guide provided me with the perfect blueprint to follow in my search for a personal assistant. Bonnie clearly demonstrates the do's and dont's of a productive rapport in bite-sized and entertaining anecdotes, and in-depth personal experiences. This book finds it greatest success by debunking the myth of the employment hierarchy by spelling out the reality of every successful working relationship - teamwork. --Anonymous employer-New York, NY --Anonymous
If you are interested in becoming a professional assistant, this is a must-read. It defines all the skills you'll need to be successful, gives a historical and future look at the profession, and includes humorous anecdotes that will keep you entertained. The paradox is that it is both an instruction manual and a page turner. The author's realistic approach can inspire those who were meant to be a successful professional assistant. As a former NY personal assistant and current certified Microsoft Office Specialist Master Instructor supporting assistants, my specific interest in reading the book was to learn more about the technology challenges professional assistants face. Not only did I discover an author who has undeniable expertise, but one with a sense of purpose to help others succeed in this extremely competitive area. While many people in the business hoard information, Bonnie demonstrates a refreshing collaborative approach. --Vickie Evans CEO Redcape Company- Dallas, TX --Vickie Sokol Evans

I liked how the book is spersed with interesting and valuable inspirational quotes between chapters. It's a good book to keep at hand and reread.
As a former executive assistant and newer recipient of administrative assistance, I found this book immensely helpful. In fact, I even found myself feeling wistful of my days as an assistant - for those of drawn to this work, it most certainly is a labor of love! I wish I had known about this book when I was in the field, as I suspect my career choices might have steered me in another direction! I look forward to sharing this with all of the employees and service providers in my life!
I can't recommend this book highly enough!
