doing the legwork, so you don't have to

As summer approaches, the thoughts of many business owners turn to planning when and how to enjoy some well-earned down-time away from the pressing demands of work.  This month I’ve been meeting with a number of my clients to discuss how I will help them to shift down a gear over the summer period.

While some are planning a couple of weeks on a sun-drenched lounger, others are looking forward to a series of long weekends catching up with family and friends or indulging in a number of fun-packed city breaks.  In fact, one of my clients has just recently departed for a three-month adventure to the other side of the world.  For many business-owners this would be a mere fantasy, but through careful planning and logistics, she has made this once-in-a-lifetime journey possible… while still being fully in charge of her business.

For all my clients, being in two places at once is entirely possible.  A combination of detailed briefings, stringent diary management and scheduled check-ins via Skype and email means that I can be dealing with the day to day while they focus on relaxing.  Here are just some of the elements of their business which I will be fielding:

  • Mail and email
  • New business enquiries
  • Diary management
  • Client communications
  • Invoicing
  • Social media

None of these are rocket-science, but all of them contribute to being ‘present’ for their customers and offering a seamless service.

So, when you look at your holiday plans for the summer, how are you making sure you will be in two places at once?

If you would like to find out more or enquire about how I might help you, please get in touch.
