A multi-talented mum is planning to use her skills to help out other busy business parents.
Ann Little, of Flitwick, has just launched a personal assistant company with a difference.
Trading as Pink Spaghetti, the mum-of-one will sell her time and experience by the hour to local small business owners, consultants, freelancers and home owners.
“There’s a burgeoning number of micro-businesses across Bedfordshire,” said Ann, “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 doing their social media to finding new suppliers, negotiating deals, and creating newsletters. Basically, Pink Spaghetti exists to take away the leg work from a business owner and give them more time to spend on the parts of their business that they enjoy.
“I believe I am unique in that I offer small businesses as many hours of support they want, without making them commit to a regular contract”
With a nine-month old son at home, Ann recently left a customer services management role with online bathroom retailer Splash Direct to look for a better work life balance.
She has 15 years’ experience within the retail sector and hopes to pick up business amongst mid-Bedfordshire’s growing number of independent cafes, restaurants and boutiques.
She anticipates that many of her Pink Spaghetti clients will also be working mums, juggling businesses and domestic tasks throughout the day.
“This is my life too,” she said “and I completely understand if someone wants me to seek out a venue for a child’s party, eBay items for them, or find a reliable cleaner”.
