Virtual Assistants - Helping Business Owners Leap Ahead

A bit about me...

Are you a business owner who knows they are not spending their time effectively?

Do you feel you are drowning in day to day admin tasks and things like social media, newsletters and data management get pushed down the priorities regularly?

Are you constantly running and endless to do list mentally and literally and it’s taking you away from doing what you do best in your business?

Have you ever missed an important message, meeting or lost business through failing to be organised and pro-active?

Would you like to know that admin is covered, your diary is managed and your emails are up to date?

How would knowing your social media, email newsletters and marketing activity are all handled in one place, and all you need to do is make one call or send one email improve things?

I can help you.

Purple Frogs cater to clients across a range of industries including animal care and welfare, retail, property, manufacturing, event organisation and entertainment and we are motivated by our ability to enable business owners to leap ahead and eat that frog (Ref Brian Tracy)

I am an experienced administrator who is passionate about helping business owners like you create business that are profitable and enjoyable whilst I handle the tasks you don’t want to. I get great satisfaction from supporting you on your way to success. Working virtually means that we both make the most efficient use of our time.

If you would like to have a quick chat about anything you’ve been putting off that you think I can help with, drop me a message on here.

Look forward to hearing from you

"Leanne has been a great help for my Sports Events business freeing up my time to focus on the actual events. She has set up my business Facebook page (and taught me how to use it!), done bits of research and data entry and is currently in the process of setting up Mailchimp so that I can send e-newsletters effectively. I hope to use Leanne much more regularly in the future enabling me to grow my business further."

Which business person or company do you admire most and why?
Dolly Parton - If you look beyond the caricature image she is an inspiring, successful but very humble business women.

Which one phrase or quote sums up your attitude to business life?

What book(s) would you recommend?
The best book I've read in recent months is Becoming - Michelle Obama.

Who's your personal hero and why?
Barbra Streisand -Her talent and success speaks for itself but, just as importantly, as a child/teenager she made me realise that there is so much more to beauty than what the media forces on us and my own self image improved whenever I watched her.

What was your first ever job?
I worked in a printing factory for two hours after school every day.

Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
I have three that I find it impossible to choose between: Loch Ness - Scotland, Yellowstone National Park - USA and Nashville, Tennessee, USA
