Purple Frogs Virtual Assistants

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? 

Or are you spending more time on Admin and not on what you really love do?

Would you like to know that admin is covered, your diary is managed and your emails are up to date while you focus on the parts of your business that you love and that make you money?

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."

"The team at Purple Frogs are a great help to my business. They take the admin off my hands so I can focus on the machining side of things."

Recommended by Kathryn Beardsall and Neal Wreford

"Using Purple Frogs means that I can focus my time on the money making side of the business rather than the day to day bits and bobs that build up and get in the way. Leanne is really efficient and professional and literally a business saver in so many ways!! Couldn't be without her and the Purple Frogs Team now! "

What I wish I'd known 18 months ago..

by Leanne Matthews on 9th Sep 2019

I was at a Women Mean Biz meeting last month and a question was raised by one of the other attendees. It’s a question I hear on a weekly basis and think about regularly so I thought it was time I wrote a blog about it! The question...

A bit more about me

What's the most enjoyable thing about your work?
Building relationships with the clients and helping to make the day to day running of their business much easier.

If you could give one single piece of advice to a new start up business, what would it be?
Remember one size does not fit all. You will receive loads of advice from well meaning people and most of it will be really helpful but some of it won't be right for you and your business and that is absolutely fine.

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?
Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

What made you join WMB and how do you plan to make the most of the network?
After my first WMB meeting I felt so energised and positive and it set the standard for other networking meetings.

What do you do at week-ends?
Spend time with my partner and dog Read Catch up on TV I've missed throughout the week

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 2 luxury items would you take?
A book and a back up book for when I finish the first book.

Call of the Penguins by Hazel Prior

What book(s) would you recommend?
My favourite reads of 2020 were: The Red Tent - Anita Diamant Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo

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. Also, my two grandmother's (one of whom is no longer with us) - both incredibly strong, smart and wonderful women and I consider myself lucky to be loved by them.

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
