As a small business owner or freelancer, your time is likely your most valuable asset, and yet it’s probably the thing you have least of.
There’s a whole lot more to running a business than simply delivering your service or product. There’s marketing, sales, admin, and business development, not to mention legal, finance and IT.
Businesses are built on people, and if those people (or that person, if you’re doing this solo) are stretched too thin, the chances of success diminish.
Just think about it – when you’re overworked, you’re probably tired, stressed, unfocused and lacking in enthusiasm, too.
As much as you might love your business and want it to succeed, you just can’t make the days any longer than they already are. And you need sleep, time to relax, and time with your loved ones.
That’s the stuff that’s really important, and that’s exactly why my business exists.
I want to give you the balance you need to be able to enjoy your life as a business owner. I want to help you get more work done in less time so you can focus on the things that truly matter to you.
How does it work?

More time for you: Get more time to focus on what’s important
You don’t need to run yourself into the ground in order to meet your business goals. In fact, I’ve seen businesses flourish from the moment outside help was brought in. Leave the admin tasks to me so that you’re free to go after your goals.
Support from a professional: I have over 13 years’ experience
I worked as an Executive Assistant at partner level for over 12 years before launching my business in April 2016. I’m much more than just an admin assistant; I’m a skilled professional who can add real value to your business.
A flexible approach: get support on your terms, as and when you need it
Pay for as little as one hour or get a monthly retainer package at a reduced hourly rate. I work from home, so there’s no need for you to find me a desk. Better still, you won’t have any of the costs or responsibilities that come with employing a member of staff.
I worked with video and audio producer Steve Folland in 2017 when he needed help reorganising a mountain of digital files. Outsourcing this type of task allowed Steve to focus more on the stuff he’s best at. Having an extra pair of hands when the work built up allowed him to work faster and achieve more each day. Steve said:
“I could see the files dropping into my Dropbox, you know how you get that notification? That was quite satisfying. I very happily hired Sadie again to do more work on the project and she’s been AWESOME again. I love the way that she doesn’t just do what I ask but sees other things.”
Go on, make the leap!
Offload the time-consuming tasks that keep you from progressing. Reduce your stress levels, save time and focus on the stuff you love.
