How do you bill for services?
Exchange chips for services to chip away at your to-do list!
Familiar tasks are assigned a chip value. Unique tasks are billed at a rate of 1 chip per quarter-hour. Each chip is $25.
You will automatically be billed one the first of the month for what you used the previous month.
1 chip: Small, straightforward tasks.
“Please schedule an appointment with Mr. Plumber for sometime in the next few weeks.”
2 chips: Tasks that require some insight.
“Please provide a reputable plumber in my neighborhood.”
“Please review the estimate for accuracy and book the service.”
4+ chips: In-person or deep research tasks.
“Please oversee the plumber appointment while I’m away on holiday.”
How do I track my chips?
Your chips are logged in real-time and billed automatically on the 1st of each month. At any point through the month, a detailed chip report can be provided to show exactly what we’ve done for you and when – just ask!
We’re also happy to honor any budget you set for your investment in our services (you are ultimately investing in your own time by bringing us in to help after all). Just let us know what that amount is and we’ll provide a courtesy notice once you reach that threshold.
Is my information confidential?
How do you handle purchases on my behalf?
Whenever possible, we process approved third-party payments with the designated card on file. If cash or check is required for the transaction, we can arrange a pick-up for an additional chip fee.
Transactions that exceed $200 require written confirmation from the member.

What can I delegate to you?
We love to take over the tasks that are perpetually put off, that interfere with your ability to focus on what’s most important, or that bring stress into your life.
There are times when that dreaded task truly must be done by you. In that case, we make sure you have the resources you need and will help keep you accountable to your own goals.
We invite you to send us even your most peculiar requests. We’ll find a way to help you someway, somehow!
How do I delegate something to your team?
When the thought pops up, our members can send it our way via:
- text or call 206 552 9211
- email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- the Member Dashboard
- Mindful Delegation®
How long does it take to complete a request?
What typically slows down the process is waiting to hear back from relevant third parties or from the requester.
We do request reasonable expectations for completion time and encourage our members to send us their tasks sooner rather than later.
How do I track a request's progress?
You have a birdseye view of every task you’ve delegated and can see if we’re hard at work, waiting to hear back from you or a vendor, or have marked it complete.
Who are the service providers you work with?
Though we have preferred vendors who have proven their trustworthiness and integrity, we have no allegiance to any one service provider. If you have someone you already love to work with or need multiple recommendations, we’ll do our best to vet every person we bring your way.
