We have our mums to thank for so many things—lots of love, patience, cheerleading, and teaching us skills and important life lessons to name a few. Let’s be honest: mums truly deserve to be recognised every day, not just on Mother’s Day.
We asked Taskers to share how their mothers have inspired their tasking, and for the many Taskers in our community who are mums themselves, we wanted to know how tasking compliments their full-time job of child rearing. Keep reading for the many reasons why mums deserve a little extra gratitude and love this Mother’s Day.
“Be polite. You can always add, never take away. (Applies to chiselling as much as a cake mix.) Tidy up as you go along. Say what you mean and mean what you say.” – London Tasker Joshua B.
“Cleaning, organizing, painting, and home decorating are some skills that my mother developed and mastered. I remember that as a child, I would help her around the house, and those skills are valuable and marketable in my life currently.” – Anonymous
“She has definitely inspired how I present myself for tasks. She dresses very professionally even for the littlest of things.” – NYC Tasker Kena A.
“She taught me to put extra trash bags under the one in the trash. Makes trash so easy especially when working an event or bartending by yourself.” – NYC Tasker Nicole D.
“My home was the type of home always filled with children, where other parents came looking for their children. I didn’t necessarily understand the values of charity, compassion, and hospitality as a child but as an adult I realized that’s what makes the world go round, and I’m so grateful to my mum for teaching me that.” – Anonymous
Tasks that have helped Client mums to get time back in their days:
“I helped a mother with reorganizing her daughter’s old bedroom to use for her grandson. It was so special to be part of this multi-generational love” – Philadelphia Tasker Jennifer P.
“I help many moms with Organization tasks, especially organizing their homes and kids rooms. All moms deserve a break sometimes.” – LA Tasker Karreno A.
“I have a task coming up to help a mom child-proof her home for her recently crawling baby.” – Nashville Tasker Carl M.
“Yes, I have assisted moms in the past with Cleaning, Organization and even Packing & Shipping tasks. Always love the end result of smiles and thank you’s.” – NYC Tasker Lizzeth A.
How tasking and motherhood compliment one another:
“Tasking gave me back the feeling of being useful, of doing something else apart from taking care of my baby. It also fits perfectly with being a mum as I can choose my own schedule. It gives me time for myself and time with my baby 😊” – Anonymous
“I am a mother who tasks and I LOVE IT!!!! It allows me the flexibility to be more available for my daughters without any recourse. The BEST way I can express is it’s a dream situation come true :-).” – NYC Tasker Lizzeth A.
“As a single mom of a disabled child, having the flexibility of TaskRabbit means I don’t have to give up my dreams just to make enough money for my family in a 9-5. Also, I love learning so it’s very interesting to adapt to each one of my Client’s needs so I never get bored. I can task, take care of my daughter, and dedicate time to my passions without feeling drained. I never thought this type of work could be so rewarding.” – SF Bay Area Tasker Tania M.
We think these stories are pretty clear indications that the mothers within the TaskRabbit community deserve a little extra love this Mother’s Day.
