Let my 40+ years of experience and knowledge help you to grow your business.
I will always try to go that Extra Mile for you!
Just starting out?
If you are just starting out on your sole trader or small business pathway, I can help you with the admin side of your business. I can set up templates of documents (invoices, spreadsheets, etc) and do the admin work on your behalf whilst you network and seek opportunities which will help your business to thrive and become successful.
Drowning under Admin/Paperwork?
You may already be well established but drowning under paperwork. Let me rescue you from that – from keeping your spreadsheets updated in relation to income/outgoings, chasing late deliveries, transcribing Board Meetings into Minutes, to locating services and goods, even searching out the best/quickest/cheapest avenues of travel for you. If it is mundane, if it is taking you away from developing your business, even if it just annoys or bores you – let me take that burden over!
Emails, Phone calls and Letters
If you are too busy exploring those opportunities, let me deal with your emails and phone calls, and keep your customers happy and secure in the knowledge that their custom is valued. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression!
Want to write a letter (whether it is a Thank You or a complaint) I can help you with that also. Tell me the style you want to adopt (personal, formal, humorous, serious) and I’ll draft the letter for you, and I promise not to be upset if you want to make changes to the draft.
Is your copy really ready to go public? This morning’s blooper email contained “Get your purse out, the deadline to get on bored with the new Landlord Electrical Safety Regulation is close (1st July 2020).” Yesterday’s blooper email “Please bare with us”. In just a few minutes I can correct the spelling, the grammar, and in some instances make your document or email scan correctly and raise the appeal to the viewer.
Too busy to keep your social media updated and your customers informed of developments within your business? Then decide just what you would like me to do, and when, and I will keep your social media refreshed and renewed. If you want warmth and humour – I’m your “go to”.
Don’t be afraid to ask if what you need help with is not mentioned – just ask. If I can help you, I will. But if I cannot help, I may well know someone who actually can help you and will go that Extra Mile to find the right person for you.
If you have a lot of ideas but are not sure whether they are practical, do-able, or even make a sensible addition to your business brand, use me as a sounding-board!
