It was a desire for flexibility that drove Tateossian to start her own business.

With three children 8-14, she was ready to leave her recruitment career and wanted more control over her daily life.

Her in-laws were the inspiration behind starting a business offering concierge services.

“They drop off dinner twice a week, babysit. People were always jealous. It made me realize how much easier my life is because of them,” she said.

Her clients are busy moms and executives. Lately, people have said they’re planning to buy her services as a gift for people who are elderly or sick.
