Rabbit Road Trip to SF!

Yes the rumors are true, as Scott Kirsner reported this morning, Kevin and I have decided to move west for the launch of TaskRabbit.com in San Francisco. It was a tough decision to head west, and I’ve appreciated all the support from family and friends as we make this journey. I realize there is some rivalry between the two coasts, especially when we are talking about a certain city, but our reason for moving is simple. TaskRabbit has a somewhat unique model, in that we are hyper-local, we scale city by city. It is only natural at this early stage, as the Founder, I would want to ensure that everything goes perfectly in the second market. So in order to absolutely nail our launch in San Francisco, I want to be out there, learning the landscape, the neighborhoods, and the idiosyncrasies.

Mother’s Day is Upon Us – An Intervention

Consider this an intervention of sorts. Look. Do us all a big favor this year and don’t buy mom that gas station bouquet of flowers. She said she liked it because she appreciates every little thing you do, but let’s be honest; you can do better. And those flowers didn’t smell very “flowery” anyway. Your last minute crappy gift ideas are hurting us all. You have 2 days to get it together. What can you get for Mom in 2 days or less? 3. Have flowers delivered from your fave floral shop. No time to pick them out and take them to Mom? TaskRabbit Runners are on call to help. 2. Write Mom a note about how much you appreciate her and have it hand delivered. By whom? A TaskRabbit Runner. 1. Give Mom what she really wants! Free up time in her day. Hire a TaskRabbit Runner to do chores for her.
