If the lines between personal assistant and executive assistant seem a bit blurred, it’s because they are. But there is a difference. Think of a personal assistant as a lifestyle version of the executive assistant.

Running errands, housework, and groceries may be part of the job description for the roles listed below. Just think of these nine personal assistant jobs as a way to collect coin, while doing the things that adulthood requires anyway.
