Pocket Watch Assistant
Business Name:
Long Business Description:

Pocket Watch Assistant – Virtual and Personal Assistant

Hi, I am Tracey the founder of the Pocket Watch Assistant – a Virtual Assistant business based in Cumbria, The Lake District, North West, UK.  I specialise in property assistance; however, I help various entrepreneurs and those in the property and construction industry nail↓

➞ Administration

➞ Coordination of Projects and Team Members

➞ Operational Support

Over 20 years of experience has taught me how to assist businesses with back-office tasks, avoiding overwhelm and enabling them a better work-life balance. No one needs to sit behind a desk for hours on end after a busy working day.

From looking after your property services, maintenance, coordinating works schedules and tracking development budgets. To keeping you on target and holding you accountable by looking after your emails and diary.

My aim is to be the time you don’t have, using knowledge and experience taught to me over the last 20 years.

I pride myself on being able to offer an array of services to work alongside businesses, to help you become more profitable by organising and coordinating your administration to keep you on target.  This enables you to concentrate on other areas of your business, or simply take some time off and avoid working all hours.

Administration and back-office tasks tend to be the area that businesses try to avoid or perhaps never quite reach the top of the to-do list and when it does reach the top of the list, it ends up encroaching into evenings and weekends.  The problem is, it is also an imperative area of any business.  Pocket Watch Assistant was established to assist businesses in this area.

Why hiring a Virtual Assistant will change your life and your business!

The numerous benefits are obvious, resulting in this option becoming very popular with:

  • Entrepreneurs
  • Property owners and developers
  • Multiple and small business owners

Time!

  • Free up your time
  • No more wasted hours sat at a desk during the evenings and weekend
  • I am able to offer flexible services

Not enough hours in the day?  I am the time you don’t have – contact me to discuss how I can help you and your business!
