My partner and I are excited to welcome a tiny new addition to our family in November; I begin parental leave on 1st November 2023, and will be back to work in early April 2024.

What does that mean if you want to work with me?

Please consider me completely "off-grid" from 1st November until 2nd January 2024 . You can still hire me to run your operations and projects from 8th April 2024

From 3rd January until 4th April, I'll be monitoring emails around once per week . If you have immediate needs in this window, please leave me a message and I'll endeavour to support any requests in a timely manner, subject to the baby nap schedule at that time!

24 tasks to put your business first for a change

Published on:

As a small business itโ€™s hard to find time to work on your business rather than in your business.ย 

During December Iโ€™ve shared 24 tasks over on Instagram that you can do as a small business owner or freelancer to put your business first for a change.

The best bit?

They all take less than 24 minutes from start to finish.

If your small business is super busy in the run up for Christmas then just bookmark these tasks for the new year. In fact, they are a great way to treat yourself to a bit of love any season.

As a commercial project manager and operations specialist I work with ambitious people to free up their time in the business so they can work on it. I do this by providing ongoing, outsourced management support or consultancy to develop efficient in-house processes and systems.
