Ask HN: I’d like to hire a personal/executive assistant – any tips or advice?

I’m a CEO with very limited free time/capacity. I would love to recruit someone to help out with “everything else” — that means personal tasks first and foremost, but involvement with the administrative/day-to-day tasks in my business too.

Whilst I’ve recruited and managed plenty of “traditional” roles in the office, this area is new to me.

Has anyone hired a PA/EA before, who can share any tips or advice?
