Why I am the right VA for you!
Need/want intelligent and reliable business support from a fellow professional?
Not enough time in the day to grow your business and generate more turnover?
Frustrated with an over flowing inbox?
Too much paperwork and not enough time?
Fed up with an ever increasing to do list?
Need a safe pair of hands to develop projects?
No time to write that vital presentation?
Need business support either every week or only as and when and you don't want an employee?
How using my services can increase your turnover!
Lets say that the amount of income that you can generate for your business is £150 per hour.
You just know that you can generate more business, but you seem to spend all your time doing paperwork and chasing up others which is getting in the way.
We work out that you can delegate 10 hrs of admin to me per month at a cost of £280 pm.
This frees you up by 10 hrs pm to earn your business an extra £1,220 pm net (£1,500 less the £280 you pay me).
Over a year this works out to an extra £14,640! (18,000-£3,360) Interested?
Let me help you! I am based in St Albans, Hertfordshire and have been self employed as a Virtual Assistant or Virtual PA since 2015 and provide business support solutions to busy, stressed business owners and consultants for whom there simply aren't enough hours in the day.

- review terms of engagement and contracts, prepare a summary for you and negotiate terms including fees;
- helping with social media and basic website maintenance such as posting blogs, adding reviews, updating your website;
- preparing or polishing documents, reports, letters, preparing templates, presentations, blogs, articles, applications etc;
- diary and email management; and
- performing other administrative and logistical support as well as providing an objective sounding board with over 30 years of business experience (including 6 as a VA).
Let me give you some examples of how I add value. I recently had a client company who needed to have an Environmental Policy to successfully bid for some work from a national company. I researched and found and some templates on the internet and adapted one for my client. This took about 2 hours costing £56. If the director had had to do it she would have lost 2 hours fee earning time at £560 so I saved her over £500 (and we got the contract!).
My client enters into say 5 contracts per month where we have to use their, not our own, contract. We have agreed a system whereby I review the contracts, check and negotiate the key terms (such as price, any restrictive covenants and confidentiality and non compete clauses, check expenses will be paid on top and such like). I then do a short review flagging up the key points any areas of concern, negotiate terms and the contract is then agreed and signed. I spend about 8-10 hours a month on this (at a cost of £224-280), but my client gets back 8-10 hours of their time to do fee paying work increasing their productivity and generating £2,000-£2,500 extra per month.
One of my clients had a key piece of equipment malfunction due to accidential damage whilst working overseas. She didn't know this until she returned home. Fortunately she had insurance but was anixous about how to make a successful claim. I prepared the claim form for her and collated the supporting documents. Initially her insurers declined the claim, saying she should have realised that there was an issue. The reality is that, even if she had, the equipment needed to be sent to the USA for repair/replacement so she would still have had to fly back to re-do the work. Her insurers agreed and covered the cost of the week's replacement work and her airfare and associated expenses, saving her £5-6,000.
Other Ways in which I Add Value
As a former lawyer I bring highly honed analytical skills and the ability to think problems through and come up with solutions having considered all the different angles. I am organised, efficient and used to working to tight deadlines with great attention to detail. I am happy working on my own or as part of a team. I love bringing order out of chaos.
I'll do all the boring,repetitive but necessary business (and some personal) jobs that you hate so that you can focus upon;
