It’s the weekend! You’ve worked really hard all week, put in the hours, been productive and successful and now it’s time to relax and have some fun for a couple of days. You know, that work/life balance thing?
Suddenly, you remember all those other little jobs that need to be done before the week starts again and the pile grows bigger. They’re jobs that matter, but you just don’t get time to do them, with all the “real” work that requires your attention.
It could be data input, record keeping/updating, sending out a newsletter, editing the blog you half wrote whilst waiting to see a client, chasing people for information so that you can progress a project, sorting out a delivery problem with a supplier, booking a stand at the next business conference, the list goes on and on.
What you need is a personal assistant, someone who can take care of all these jobs while you get on with the essence of your business. But wait! That means a whole stack of costs and responsibilities and….you guessed it….time! That’s where I come in. I’m here for you whenever you need me. I’m no trouble, you don’t have to pay my National Insurance, contribute to my pension, train me, buy equipment for me, worry about my health and safety, pay me if either of those things go wrong, pay me while I go off on holiday or feed and entertain me at Christmas (although it would be nice…..), all I do is exactly what you need me to do, whenever or wherever you need it. And because you just pay for what you need, my services are really good value for money and will make a positive contribution to your bottom line. What’s not to love?
My passion lies in wanting to make my client’s lives a little easier, help them get their work/life balance back, take away some of the grind and free them up to get back to what drives them, what they started the business for and, ultimately, what makes them money.
Maybe you decided to make a life change and follow your passions, by starting up your own business, doing something that you love, something that inspired you or something that you were really good at. Fantastic! I bet it was scary, but made you feel great!
Then, along come all the jobs that need to be done in the background, to oil the wheels of the machine. Day to day stuff that’s important …..but not what you were thinking of when you dreamed of being your own boss and spending your days doing what you do best, your core business.
