Welcome to our latest installment of MOMpreneur Monday, highlighting businesses and brands that were founded by female entrepreneurs and fellow Mommas!
Today’s featured Modern Boca MOMpreneur is Frances Wilhelm, owner and founder of the ALICE On Demand Family Assistant in Boca Raton!Tell us a little about your background and why you developed the ALICE On-Demand Family Assistant…
As a full-time single parent, I don’t have the luxury of a partner who can share responsibilities or contribute financially to the household. Everything falls on my shoulders, which inspired me to create ALICE On Demand Family Assistant.
“Being a mother is the most rewarding experiences of my life. I’m always striving to be the best role model, coach, friend and confidante for my two beautiful daughters. They mean everything to me. They give my life purpose.”
But you needed help, obviously.
I wanted affordable, on-demand help I could trust. I wanted someone who could help in a moment’s notice. This someone must be caring and loving and trustworthy. I imagined this someone to be a person I could call anytime and they would be there for us in a jiffy.
If I got stuck in traffic and needed someone to pick my kids up from school. Or, if the school called saying one of them had a fever and needed to be picked up. Honestly, even if I just didn’t feel like cooking or doing laundry one night, I could hire someone to do it for me. The list of scenarios goes on.
I knew I needed wonderful and caring help, but having someone at your beck and call was a little out of reach for me. That’s like having a full-time nanny/housekeeper, but I couldn’t afford that. So here I was, in need of the convenience of a full-time nanny or housekeeper, but without the expense of one.
Intuition told me that if I needed this, other parents must need it too. That’s when I created ALICE. An affordable, caring, trusting and loving, on-demand family assistant at your service in 30 minutes or less. I’m super excited to bring this service to the world. I know it’s transformed my life and has given me something that is irreplaceable and priceless: more quality time with my children. If it’s done this for me, it could do this for you too! Everyone needs an ALICE!
My business is fueled by love and passion. Our vision is to bring safe and caring on-demand family assistant services to the world, so every parent has the help they need. It takes a village to raise a child and that village is ALICE.
Our challenge is that the demand for ALICE is growing quickly. We offer ALICE On Demand Family Assistant in 5 counties and are expanding…fast. Currently, ALICE is available in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, Collier and Lee counties.
