How it Works

My aim is to provide you with all the tools you need to carefully and thoroughly complete your business plan, craft your website, curate your best content and promote your services or products. I want you to be able to take control of all that you require, thus saving you money over the longer term.

However, sometimes you just need someone to take the reins and do some of the work for you while you grab a much-needed glass of wine (or cup of tea – whatever takes your fancy). Here are the skills I can provide reasonable quotes for should you need a well-earned rest or you simply cannot get the hang of…

Volunteer Experience:

Terrence Higgins Trust
Dates volunteered  Nov 2017 – Present
Cause:  Health

My brother died of complications from HIV. I am helping Terrence Higgins Trust as they supported my brother through a very stressful time in his lfe and, in his memory, I would like to thank and honour them for the amazing work they continue to do for people affected by HIV/AIDS!He was the one of the first men with HIV to take an employer to court for disability discrimination because of his HIV status! The Terance Higgins’ Trust came to the rescue with advice and helped locate a barrister willing to take the case ‘pro bono’ (without fees).Sadly Scotty has passed away. But to remember what a fabulous honour it was to have had him as a part of my life I’m doing my very best to now pay back with thanks the support that was given. I can only hope this will in some way help someone else in his memory.
