Let’s face it ladies. Life as a mom is hectic. You have to cook, clean, shop for groceries, shuttle little ones to all their activities, check homework, meet with teachers, plan birthdays, do laundry and pack lunches. I don’t know about you but even with just two kids I find I often need to be in two places at once which means running back and forth and having to skip grocery shopping or laundry. Then add in the extra busyness with holidays or Spring Break and it reaches a whole new level of crazy.
This is why I was so excited to hear about a new service here in Austin, Texas called NeedTo.com. It provides a way for busy moms and dads to get help with just about anything. Gotta to run a kid to soccer and need someone to walk the dog? NeedTo.com. Your spouse has been coaching little league games every Saturday for the past 6 weeks and your yard looks like the Amazon? NeedTo.com. You bought a new dishwasher but can’t stomach the installation charge? NeedTo.com. Your house looks like a tornado went through it and you are expecting company in a few hours? NeedTo.com. It’s all at the click of a mouse.
NeedTo is a new social helping platform that connects helpers with people who want work completed. Posting jobs is free on NeedTo.com. People can choose helpers based on qualifications, reviews and ratings from other people, offer a price – or a combination of these elements. Employers only pay when the task is completed. Here’s a brief video about all NeedTo has to offer.
I listed all the ways it can help busy parents but NeedTo.com works for more than household chores. Its a temp agency without the paperwork and lets employers decide on staffing each day. Hire extra hands for production or to meet a shipping deadline. Or use the service yourself to find a job. You can help tutor students, mow lawns, patch drywall, pickup BBQ. It’s a great way to find some odd jobs to earn extra cash.
