Tell us about the Services you offer?
I offer virtual Business Support, Lifestyle Management, Social Media Management and Event Management
How did you come up with the idea and what motivated you to go for it?
I have always been a PA and last year whilst on maternity leave and depressed at the thought of having to return to work full-time ..forever! , I created Werk Lifestyle Management. It seemed like a natural transition to make as it is what I have always been used to doing.
What do you love about running your own business and what do you find hard?
I love the flexibility that it gives me around my family , I also love the fact that I do not have to consult anyone when making decisions about running my business. In terms of what I find hard, I sometimes find it hard to switch off once I’m in ‘the zone’ and often work when I shouldn’t be!
What kind of Boss Mum are you and how do you manage the juggle?
I am definitely an organised mum , I work well with routine and like everything to run like clockwork or it makes me anxious. It also helps with organising the children and everyone knows what to expect. Weekends are for winging it though!
Do you have a favourite app or work tool you think everyone should know about?
I love Timeular – I use it to record all the activities which I work on for my clients. It also allows me to export the data for them too so they can see exactly where my time is being spent. It is linked to a handy device which I just flip over to begin recording the time.
How do you define success?
Success for me is having the perfect work- life balance , this is the whole reason I began my business.
What has been a particular highlight for you since starting your business?
Realising that I really do make a difference in peoples lives, being a PA in the corporate world is such a thankless job, but with my business I regularly receive great feedback from my clients, which makes all the hard work worth while.
What is your favourite Social Media platform and how has it helped in your success?
Instagram definitely, it is effortless and so easy to engage with people. I have formed so many beneficial links through it too. I also really enjoy coming up with new content to share.
Tell us 3 facts about you…
- I am super organised , think Monica Geller.
- I have probably watched Moana 18263 times thanks to my daughter.
- I never let a song finish playing when I’m in the car before skipping to the next one, much to the annoyance of my passengers.
What do you enjoy most about being a part of Mama Tribe?
I love the feeling of camaraderie and the fact that I am amongst fellow boss women, all winning at being not only great business owners but the best mothers too.
