Making the most of every hour in the day is essential for everyone, especially billionaires. Well-to-do individuals and families hire help—assistants, chefs, house managers, and more – to keep their personal and professional lives operating as efficiently as possible.

Services like Hire Society, a recruitment firm that works with the ultra-affluent in New York City, the Hamptons, and Palm Beach, are available to help billionaires staff their households and businesses.

"The vast majority of our clients are the .01% – they have multiple homes, private aircraft, and several members of domestic staff," said Hire Society founder David Youdovin.

"There's major altruism in putting good people to work with these families," Youdovin continued. "These salaries can be life-changing, especially for people not originally from the United States."

Youdovin, who worked as a butler and estate manager before starting Hire Society, broke down the roles wealthy families commonly hire for, and just how much these staff members are paid annually.
