What is your favorite virtual assistant?

Looking for an assistant to do menial tasks like general research for startups, scheduling appointments, booking travel, etc who can be trusted with some personal information. Seems like Upwork may be best but wanted to see if there are any other options.

    Easy to use and flexible. I've used Calendly a ton for scheduling interviews. It syncs with my Google calendar, but I can also limit the times available via Calendly further which is a great feature.

    Upwork is great for finding a virtual assistant. I've used it to find people to do data entry at a very affordable price.
    I have a great experience with upwork for 2 years, highly recommend

    Now on-demand service for cleaning, handiwork, & errands

    TaskRabbit are a great option too! I find people on their platform to be generally more qualified than on Upwork and the like.

    Human-in-the-loop assistant that schedules meetings.

    Really works, it's a shame that it's a bit expensive so it's only worth it for people who spend fair amount of their day scheduling meetings.

    Talkifly for hassle free travel management. You can talk with assistants via chat and use Team Hub section to get your team organized (approvals workflow, policies, preferences, billing etc).

    Besides Alexa, Cortona, Google, I think Hound is pretty cool made by soundhound so has great music discovering abilities.
