10+ Unexpected Tasks a Personal Assistant Can Manage

Many people have their definition of a "personal assistant" and it's the stereotypical person that is sent running after coffee for the boss, or the one who is sent to print papers, write up meeting agendas, or make phone calls on the company or individual professional's behalf.
