Part ‘VA’/Part ‘Time Lord’

I know what you’re thinking.  Either the heat has got to me or I’m using any excuse I can think of to post a picture of a TARDIS.  There might be an element of truth in both of those statements.  But bear with me.  I can create time for you, leading me to believe that I am Part ‘VA’/Part ‘Time Lord*’.

I’m (probably) not an alien, I don’t own a TARDIS and I’ve never seen a Dalek in real life (although I’m ever hopeful that will change one day).

But I can create extra time for you!

My clients come from a variety of different backgrounds.  What they have in common is that they all need more time to build their businesses.  I give them that time!

When you run your own business it is easy to lose track of your day.  You’re running a webinar, you have a presentation to put together and  this needs to take priority.  But you also need to update your Facebook groups and update your blog.  Not to mention all the other little things you’d hoped to schedule in.  You know what the content will be for all 3 tasks but no time to implement any of them properly.

How quick and easy would it be to give the bones of your presentation to someone who can create a professional looking presentation for you while you get on with your next task?  How much quicker would it be to dictate your blog and send off the file to someone who could transcribe it and upload it to WordPress for you? And what about creating and changing your Facebook Page/Group headers, files, information etc to keep your brand looking fresh and customer’s interested in what you’re up to?  It is all so time consuming.  However, all of these tasks could be outsourced freeing up your day to concentrate on other things.

Send it all to your own personal Time Lord!

Yes, that is a Sonic Screwdriver!

This is what I do for my clients. It gives them much more time to breathe during the day.  Once they’ve passed their tasks to me, they can be confident that they will all be completed in a quick and efficient manner (and at a typing speed of 90 wpm, I really do mean ‘quick’!).  They can get on with planning their next event/blog/meeting without getting bogged down in the time consuming effort of putting it all together.

Does that sound like something I could help you with?

I like PowerPoint!

I have some very creative friends.  Artists, musicians, the sort of people that can turn their hand to almost anything artistic (despite being told repeatedly by me that no-one likes a show off).

JakeWell OK, that comment is the green-eyed monster talking, I can’t even master the art of the most basic of drawing skills, and here is an example.  I have labelled it so that you are not confused as to which is the photo of my dog Jake, and which is my attempt at drawing him.

I know what you’re thinking.  Did a 47 year old woman really turn out something so tragically bad?  Well no!  The joke’s on you because I actually drew that when I was about 33. Yes years. And yes I realise that still makes it a pretty poor effort.

But do you know what I am good at and what I really enjoy?  PowerPoint!  Because it lets me be creative without having to worry about having the artistic ability of a partially sighted, elderly squirrel.  I can visualise what I want to see on the slide and PowerPoint gives me the ability to create it.  And for just a little while I can pretend to be an artist too…

So if you ask me to create a PowerPoint presentation you are actually giving my inner artist a way to channel herself without the humiliation of presenting something a bit like you see above (although I did have that drawing made into fridge magnets and sent them to a couple of friends – they were thrilled).

PowerPoint Presentation – Special Offer!

20 Slide PowerPoint Presentation for £25As mentioned in a previous blog post, I support Kim’s Home Dog Rescue who are based in Cardiff.

Bi-annually I run their online auctions to raise funds for dogs in their care and dogs needing a rescue space.

This involves sending out emails to supporters asking for donations and collating all that information as it comes in.

Then, after creating an online catalogue, I run the auction for one week on Facebook.

The really hard work starts at the end of the auction.  Co-ordinating payments in and making sure that donators send the right items out to the right people.  We usually receive around 240 items so this is a mammoth task!

I am also going to offer a 20 Slide PowerPoint Presentation for £25, four times a year.  The £25 will be donated to Kim’s Home.   A presentation of that size would usually cost between £35 – £50, so this is a real bargain, as well as helping a very worthwhile cause.

If you would like to take advantage of this deal, please go to my Facebook Page.  The first to comment on the promotional thread, receives this special offer.

Why I Support Kim’s Home For Elderly/Abused Dogs

Why I support Kim's Home For Elderly/Abused DogsAs I have mentioned on my About Page, I’ve always been a dog lover and in particular sighthound lover. Lurchers and Greyhounds in particular are extremely overbred and mistreated in the UK which is why there is a need for so many breed specific rescues.

I first met Wendy from Kim’s Home Dog Rescue in 2000 on a Yahoo Lurcher Group (Yahoo Groups! Remember those?!). She had 8 dogs then, all rescue, mainly Salukis. We hit it off straight away and her Salukis were instrumental in road testing my Sighthound Specific Dog Coats that I designed a couple of years later.

EdieFast forward a few years and Wendy was running her own dog rescue ‘Kim’s Home for Elderly/Abused Dogs’ and in 2008 when I had decided I would like another little lurcher, Wendy had just the dog i was looking for. Edie, a Whippet x Saluki, came to live with me in April 2008 and has been a dream dog from the get-go. She inspired me to write a book to raise money for Kim’s Home which then led onto me organising the bi-annual fundraisers which started in 2015.
