✅ Pay only for productive work (eliminates paying for idle time of an employee)
✅ Say goodbye to crowded workspaces at the office (especially important post COVID-19)
✅ Open communication from anywhere (free yourself from the office while projects continue)
✅ More time to focus on growing the business (while I focus on the details)
✅ Overflow assistance readily available (so before you become overtasked, you know who to go to)
✅ Most importantly, when you partner with me you gain a resourceful, committed and seamlessly integrated team player who understands the challenges and rewards of running a business
When my clients succeed, I succeed. We can all use some support - and support just happens to be what I love ⭐️

This includes: Executive Assistance, Administration, Project Management, Travel Coordination, Marketing/Communications Coordination, and Remote Work Coaching.

I studied Marketing, Communications, and Business Administration in College and University; achieving a diploma, postgraduate advanced diploma, and bachelor's degree. From personal to corporate, I’m your go-to guy. When you enlist my help you gain peace of mind knowing that all the details will be taken care of.

"Over the past 18-months, AJ has become an essential part of my business. Simply put, AJ creates time. Time for me to focus on higher level strategic tasks, time with my family, time with clients. By taking ownership of tasks, and more importantly anticipating and executing on issues, AJ allows me to focus on serving clients and running the business.
I can be a tough combination of exacting in my expectations and under-communicative in what exactly that I'm looking for. AJ has been both patient and proactive in adapting to this, and even indirectly helped me get (a little) better at broadcasting what I'm looking for in a project/outcome.
AJ is accurate, thorough, (very) responsive, and very rarely needs more than 5 minutes of direction to complete a task. Perfect example - I wanted to explore having conference attendees be able to take batting practice at a Major League Baseball facility in Scottsdale on a certain date. That's pretty much the limits of my instructions. AJ set it all up, including roundtrip transportation, insurance, etc. My total time invested from idea generation to hitting baseballs - about 20 minutes. And it worked far more seamlessly than if I had planned it myself.
We've worked together and met once, as he practically organized a conference in February that my firm put on, and travelled to Arizona to ensure things went well. The distance (i.e. remote work) is no factor, and has not once caused an issue. In fact, I don't believe that I even knew where he was located for the first 6 months.
If you are looking for a team member that can make it happen, look no further." - Ben H, President
"A.J. is a professional, well organized, detail oriented individual who is always two steps ahead. It has been a pleasure working with A.J. building my brand at Pure Style Interiors. A.J. provides creative solutions that are innovative and interesting. We would be lost without you A.J. and look forward to our continued partnership together for the years to come." - Stephanie P, Owner
"I would highly recommend A.J. to anyone looking for an executive assistant but just can not determine if a full time assistant is necessary or the right fit. A.J. is highly organized and is willing to tackle any task you throw at him. He is great at helping manage your day to day schedule and also has a great marketing background. Very talented."
- Chad S, Co-Owner
"A.J. has been an amazing person to work with and has helped to make the daunting task of rebranding and developing my website easy and pain free. As people have pointed out, AJ is extremely well organized, a great communicator, and always seems to be one-step ahead of your business needs. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for guidance on web design or business marketing, and I am looking forward to working with him again!" - Colin B, Owner
"I engaged A.J. during a time of particular need to help offload a few things and clear out a bit of a backlog. A.J. was a god send - responsive, helpful, and went the extra mile. I have continued to work with A.J. as a virtual addition to the team as he is a hard worker, always incredibly aware of needs and deadlines, and will make connections between assignments and the larger picture without being prompted. He has often thought ahead or seen pieces I missed and made sure things were great. I would highly recommend A.J. as a complement to anyone’s team!" - Evan D, COO
"A.J. Daniak was crucial in the success of this project for my business. As the team leader, his excellent communications skills, timely response and attention to detail led to a positive impact to our business. Within a two week period we had secured four new customers. A.J. provided Google AdWords account management, Google+ social media page management, budgeting to adhere to Google project rules, monitoring and adjustments to maximize project funds and improve results. A.J.’s quality of work, professionalism and responsiveness allowed this project to be a success in the designated short period of time. A.J. would be a valuable asset to your organization and has my highest recommendation." - John V, CEO
"I have been working with A.J. for almost a year now and I couldn't say enough amazing things about him! He's efficient, always going above & beyond, looking ahead of any issues, to prevent any more, as well as finding potential/future issues by being diligent and double checking other's work without asking. A.J. has an amazing work ethic and I can easily hand anything off to him and know he will handle it quickly, efficiently and always with a smile. No task is too big or too small and if he doesn't immediately know how to address it he researches it and gives me the answer without even asking. I highly recommend him!" - Ines M, Chief of Staff
