Stone mum Lisa Cox has just launched a personal assistant company with a difference!
Trading as Pink Spaghetti Mid Staffordshire, Lisa will sell her time and experience by the hour to local small business owners, consultants, freelancers and home owners.
“Basically, it’s pay as you go,” she said. “There are a burgeoning number of micro-businesses across Mid Staffordshire, many of which operate from people’s homes and are not in a position to employ a full time or even part time assistant.
“That is where I come in. I can take over the tasks that no business owner enjoys, from managing their social media to de-cluttering, bookkeeping and creating newsletters. Pink Spaghetti exists to take away the legwork from a business owner and give them more time to spend on the parts of their business that they love.
“I believe I am unique in that I offer small businesses as many hours of support as they want, without making them commit to a regular contract.”
Lisa’s 12 years working for a local medium sized company has given her a wealth of knowledge to draw on, having worked her way through the ranks from receptionist to senior management. Because she has worked at all levels of the business she is equally at home tackling everyday tasks such as data entry as she is undertaking tender submissions. Her experience with a developing company will enable her to advise other small businesses as they grow.
Mum to two children, Lisa anticipates that many of her Pink Spaghetti clients will also be working mums, juggling businesses and domestic tasks throughout the day.
Lisa enjoys developing close working relationships and hopes her expertise will help lessen the load for small businesses to allow them to focus on growth and development.
“Running my own business will be hard work but will give me much greater flexibility. As well as having a better work life balance I am looking forward to helping other busy people achieve this.”
