My name is Holly and I live in Lincolnshire. I’ve just set up my business as I was made redundant on maternity leave and to be honest I was fed up of putting lots of energy into companies who don’t appreciate it and want to grow something myself instead!
One of the services I currently offer is business caretaking services while clients are out of the office. I found a lot of small business owners can’t actually switch off while on holiday as they are constantly keeping one eye on their businesses. So I keep an eye on things for them. They nominate a contact for any urgent specialist queries and if a client can’t wait I act as a go between. It also means their clients aren’t being met with an out of office, they get to speak to someone and also they come back to a clean inbox. It seems to be well received it’s just a case of getting some more clients now which is where I am struggling!!
Looking forward to chatting with you all and getting some tips
