I have worked for over 25 years within customer service and administrative roles for large and small organisations. In this time a lot has changed. It used to be that a Personal/Professional Assistant used a typewriter to produce any documents that her boss needed, after first taking dictation, usually in shorthand. She filed paper copies of all letters received and sent in bulky metal filing cabinets. She kept his paper diary and booked his appointments in pencil. She was the "general chief cook and bottle washer" of her bosses world. I say "She" because 25 years ago usually your assistant was a woman.
These days we have the internet, emails, social media, smartphones and cloud storage. Just keeping on top of emails can be an everyday headache. How do you decide what is urgent and what is just spam? How can you easily look at your inbox and know what needs to be actioned today. If I book an appointment or job on my online calendar how can I make sure this is available wherever I am?
If you're a small business, you may not have office premises, or you may have premises that do not lend themselves to having staff. You started your business because you're passionate about the product you sell or the service you provide, you are an expert in your field and your dream is to do what you love each and every day.
In reality, you spend vast amounts of time when you are not doing what you love catching up on the administration side of your business. This takes time away from doing the other stuff you love, social life, sport, family, not quite how you envisioned it, Right? It doesn't have to be this way. That's where a Lloyd Admin Services comes in.
We are a resource who you can call or email, and we take the strain of your administration headaches. You only book for the time you need us, no long term employment contract where you have all the extras an employee requires, like pensions, training plans.
So why not contact us and see what I can do for your business? All you have to gain is time freedom and doing more of what you love.
