    Hi everyone,
    I’ve recently joined Flying Solo and so far have found it a great tool for information and enthusiasm!

    I’ve always wanted to try working for myself and after many years in the corporate sector I’ve taken the plunge. Working from home and trying to find clients is certainly a change from the old world of 9-5 processes, projects and people.

    I am concentrating on what I do best – efficient, expert business support services. That includes everything from business planning – helping identify objectives and goals and creating plans to achieve them – through to producing tenders, reports and presentations.

    I’m trying to promote it as ‘right hand man’ type service for companies or individuals which lack such support or skills. It’s easy to think you can do everything but in reality you can easily get distracted from your area of expertise by administrative tasks. Why not outsource them and get better quality results and free up your time?

    I’m based in Brisbane and just starting out networking from scratch so any tips are very welcome!

    Thanks for reading and I look forward to being active in the Flying Solo community!

    Hi Antonia,
    Congratulations on your new venture!

    Every small business needs a ‘right hand man’! (or woman!)….so I love how you put this.

    We have some things in common in regards to support for others.

    Look forward to connecting.
    Feel free to get in touch.

    Cheers
    Elizabeth.

    Hi Antonia,

    There are a few of these sorts of services floating around, none I have used or know very much about. They tend to do very general office/personal assistant type roles but your focus seems to be more than simple organising and office management. As more and more business owners see the need for strategic planning in order to grow their business, services like yours easily pay for themselves many times over, particularly when it comes to procurement or presentation writing. A good online presence could see a wider market for your services than just Australia. A very good business idea.

    Good luck and contact me if I can be if any assistance.

    Brad
