Sometimes in life we simply need order, humour and a bit of help to keep up with everything. Reminder, reminder, so much to do and no cloning technology available yet...time to get an assistant.

PA Chatbots Accessible For Personal Lives

Have you ever considered why it is that business people have personal assistants when their days are probably more structured than that of a stay at home mother? Or that the business person’s personal assistant is, in fact, double jobbing at both her day job and running her family and home?
Keeping on top of to-do-lists such as dentist and doctor appointments, speech therapy sessions, Scout’s hikes, swimming lessons (yes, once your allocated weeks are drawing near the end you can’t afford to have not have budgeted for the next session!), the fifteen birthday parties that your little darling has been invited to, it is mind blowing. If we were to look at the amount of times we go into an absolute spiral panic when a project is due the next day and we forgot to pick up the coloured board (ours has to have a red one by the way and this is not actually ‘our’ project) or, which has to me favourite, we have known for three weeks that, due to some sporting event, we need a blue t-shirt but somehow three weeks have flown by and we now need one for the morning! Now that is pressure. A pressure which might just, if you are lucky, include having to remember to pencil in some time to make an appointment and make it to the appointment to get your eyebrows done. This is serious business, people rely on us, time can be wasted with missed appointments and budgets can be destroyed without ultimate planning. If you think the boss would be peeved if his personal assistant let him down you haven’t experienced the heartache or tantrum of a disappointed little person!

PA Required

At this time, most people would admit that they would never be too far from their phone. We have become reliant on phones as a time-saving tool that provides convenient access to information and reminders about events. Whether it is Google Mapping your trip, catching a bus or locating the nearest location for a bite to eat, our trusty phone is at hand. Well, now we can go one step better and get our very own PA, a PA chatbot, to make life easier. A chatbot that can keep track of our calendars, our to-do-lists, shopping lists and budgets like any good personal assistant would.

Your Friendly Chatbot

Smiles, cheerful greetings and pleasant encounters all make for a good day. If a good day and a friendly chatbot are important to you Telegram has one. Introducing Me, your friendly reminder assistant. You can think of ‘Me’ as your around-the-clock ‘secretary’ that offers you wake up calls. Taking your new friendly assistant a few steps further you can plan your itinerary a little better with weather up-dates. If the weather is a little grey or you are feeling a little blue ‘Me’ can make you laugh by telling jokes too. If that isn’t particularly amusing you can share the some inspiration, laughter or just reach out to someone that you have not scheduled into your calendar by sending them GIFs.

Don’t Forget It, Chatbot It

Spoiled for choice, personal assistant chatbots are available on platforms such as Skype, Amazon and Messenger. Depending on your personal preferences and requirements the choice is yours. If it is an automated virtual assistant you would like then Ava Zoom is available on Skype. Used to schedule meetings and plan travel arrangement to and from the meetings Ava Zoom is your go-to chatbot. When multi-tasking takes over your life, however, you can set and manage daily reminders with Memodeer. If you are seriously into trending technology then Alexa from Amazon is the way to go. Amongst many functions is ‘note me’, a skill in beta mode which allows the user to save short notes or messages. Up to five notes or messages can be saved and recalled by voice recognition. Instructions such as, “Alexa launch ‘note me’; save I am going to the store tomorrow.” “Play Alexa”, will play the note back to you in her voice. “Delete Alexa” will delete the messages.

A Budgeting Chatbot

If you have ever had that person in your life that keeps you on the straight and narrow, the one person that in the midst of an impulse buy gives sensible advice, then Monty Frugal is your new best friend. The chatbot that helps you stay within your budget when temptation is near. Have a chat with Monty Frugal on Messenger and he will help you to predict your budgetary requirements for the month and use him to log your expenses. If you have ever woken up one day and wondered where your money has disappeared, keeping a log is a great way of keeping track of what you have spent your money on.

And if you need something more bespoke on the bot front, why not create your own PA bot? There are several platforms, like Snatchbot,where you can create bots for free. And it’s surprisingly easy to do so. No coding is needed, just a willingness to experiment and have fun giving your own bot great conversational skills and a bright personality.

It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.
