Wise Atlanta is your Atlanta planner friend helping locals get out and experience new sides of the city. We work with local businesses and influencers to prepare unique, curated plans and text them to you once a week, like secret hikes, bar hops, and amazing restaurants.
COVID-19 consumed 2020. Everything changed suddenly and dramatically. While our ability to see others dwindled, our desire to connect only grew.
New services are needed to ensure consistent social connection in a time of unprecedented isolation. We spent 2020 talking to the community and learning. We pulled up our sleeves and explored ways to help as everyone was struggling to adapt.
“Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile.” —Mark Twain
In August 2018, Michael Diego (Founder and CEO) embarked on a year-long work abroad deployment, where he traveled to over 13 countries in a year. He adventured across the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, New York City, and more!
Planning an experience abundant, nomadic lifestyle was a challenge for Michael. He was missing social connections he’d either not known about or didn’t have the energy to organize. Michael’s work-life balance was strained and he decided to build a virtual assistant for planning his social lifestyle.
Michael met Ryan Brandt (Founder and CTO) at the Boston Build Hackathon and they joined forces to bring Wise Assistant to life. Together, they endeavored to build an assistant that would proactively automate manual planning tasks so they could focus on enjoying the experience.
Wise Assistant would make group planning and finding new experiences a breeze. The story resonated and the small team quickly grew.
What is a plan?
A “plan” is a series of experiences that lead toward a specific goal. Whether you’re planning for dinner, travel, or to improve your mindfulness, planning is an all-consuming problem that presents us with the age-old dilemma of too much info, too many tools, and not enough time.
Wise Assistant is your super integrated, end-to-end virtual assistant for planning more social connections. We help you turn your ideas into plans and encourage you to get out in the world.
Brighter days are just around the corner. Seriously!
We partner with the local community members and businesses to help groups enjoy more meaningful experiences - together (again).
Our mission is to make planning simple. Too many memories never happen because it was a hassle to coordinate busy schedules, figure out what to do, and countless other frustrating tasks. We want to eliminate the things that matter least so that you can live the life that matters the most.
