Our Story

How It Began

VIP Help Me was created the same way many great ideas are, out of necessity. In the early 2000s, Managing Members Brian Carney and Trish Carney were both working demanding, high-level corporate careers. When they were actually able to contribute substantively, it was highly rewarding. The problem was those times were few and far between.

After spending one too many meetings in a room full of colleagues arguing about the proper parts of speech on a PowerPoint presentation, they commiserated. “There has to be a better way to do this – to get work done now – without all the overhead and waste.” VIP Help Me became the solution.

In 2006, VIP Help Me was born – founded on the key principles: that work-life balance is paramount, that work that can be done remotely should be done remotely, that adding cost does not equate to adding value, that hard work should be rewarded, and that savings in cost, time, and energy can be shared by all those involved.
