Now Hiring an assistant!

When I was pregnant people would warn me “ You think you’re busy now, just wait until you have kids” Of course I just laughed and shrugged it off thinking oh whatever, I couldn’t possibly. Boy was I WRONG! These have been the busiest 4 months of my life, not only with being a wife and new mom, business hasn’t seem to slow down either! I am so blessed to have this “problem” but I am faced with having to make a big decision. I have been back and forth with the decision of “ Do I hire someone”. After starting a second business (The Social Event) and trying to keep up with a growing cake business I know I can’t possibly keep going the way I’m going. I am ONE person. I have overloaded myself to the point of pure exhaustion, I LOVE cakes, I LOVE these businesses, and I LOVE my customers! I don’t want to burn out, so I have decided to hire someone to better this business.

This would be a PART TIME AS NEEDED BASIS job that would include handling social media, client emails and calls for both Social Bites and The Social event, as well as baking/decorating assistant.

DISCLAIMER: This job is not for someone aspiring to open their own business in the future.

Here is the qualities that I am looking for:

I am looking for a young hip person, Someone who knows the latest trends and up to date on the “times”. They MUST LOVE VINTAGE! I need a super organized person, because let’s face it. I am NOT organized , as much as I want to be , I am NOT! I need a friendly outgoing and fun person, someone who can laugh and play but also knows when it’s time to get down to business. I need someone who is a HARD WORKER! Gasp! I know, hard work? Yes this business is so unbelievably hard. Lots of long days and nights. It’s not going to be sprinkles and cupcakes every day. I need someone who is creative, to help with ideas and concepts. Lastly I need someone who is flexable, this is probably one of the most important qualities. I need someone who can work on the weekend, and doesn’t let their personal life interfere with work. This job is a AS NEEDED BASIS! Although I am booking up a few weeks or sometimes months in advance there may be a week that is slower than others.. This is NOT a 8-5 mo-fri job!

If you think you've got the qualities above then send me an email at, I would love to meet you!

I am so excited about the future of Social Bites and The Social Event, I cannot wait to have someone to grow with!
