New Sutton Coldfield based business, Pink Spaghetti Sutton Coldfield & Lichfield started trading at the end of January 2018.
Describing itself as that 25th hour in the day all busy people need, Pink Spaghetti Sutton Coldfield & Lichfield is a personal assistant service run by Jayne O’Keeffe.
Just before the launch of her new venture the multi-talented Sutton mum wrote on the Pink Spaghetti Facebook page, “…Going Pink… today’s the day! My Pink office! Launching Pink Spaghetti PA services in Sutton Coldfield & Lichfield. Wish me luck!”
In a nutshell, Jayne will sell her time and experience by the hour to local small business owners, consultants, freelancers and home owners.
“Basically, it’s pay as you go. There are a burgeoning number of micro-businesses across the Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth area, 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 managing their social media to decluttering, bookkeeping and creating newsletters. Pink Spaghetti exists to take away the legwork from a business owner and give them more time to spend on the parts of their business that they love.
“I believe I am unique in that I offer small businesses as many hours of support as they want, without making them commit to a regular contract.”
Jayne has varied experience working for a local university in a variety of administrative roles including as PA to the Associate Deans.
She has organised events, arranged travel, managed diaries, budgets, wages and finances. Jayne is happy juggling many tasks at once and enjoys the buzz of doing a good job.
Outside of her working life, she and her husband set up a school in Kenya in 2012, and through fundraising they have continued to support it, with 70 children now attending.
Mum of 2 young children, Jayne anticipates that many of her Pink Spaghetti clients will also be working mums, juggling businesses and domestic tasks throughout the day.
“Running my own business will be hard work but will give me much greater flexibility. As well as having a better work life balance I am looking forward to helping other busy people achieve this.”
