Girl Friday

You survived the holiday rush – barely. The midnight run to the self-ship machine at the post office, furious online shopping between meetings, and the Christmas morning pit-stop at Safeway made you resolve to be more organized in 2008.

Step one: outsource some of those chores and errands to Windward Go Girls, a new personal assistant service run by sisters Maria Sedillo and Nita Sasser.

Call them for help with any kind of errand or concierge-type task, from grocery shopping to hitting the bank and post office to giving you a ride to and from the airport. They’ll even pick up or deliver packages or come over and wait for the cable guy to show up when you can’t get off work for the afternoon.

With their own demanding jobs and an extended stint taking care of their ailing parents, the two sisters realized they personally needed help to juggle all the competing appointments and errands. Now, one of their specialties is helping seniors stay independent – they offer a 20 percent discount to those 55 and older.

And don’t worry if you’re a Town Girl or a Leeward Girl, Windward Go Girls covers most of the island, from the Windward side to town to the Pearl City area.

Going nowhere never sounded so good.

Update April 2011: Windward Go Girls website and phone number have been disconnected.  We'll let you know if it returns.
