So there are many demands on your time and if you find yourself working and working just to catch up on yourself each day, then your work-life balance is completely out of balance.
"Sometimes, there's just too much
to do, isn't there?"
During a recent survey of business owners, 58% of people said their workload has increased; a fifth said that it has gone up significantly. But they also said that it's not enough to justify employing someone, so they just get on with it themselves.
But when you're putting in so many hours each day that your productivity is dropping off dramatically, you're constantly feeling tired, or your kids were put to bed hours ago and you didn't even notice ... well, that's the time you really do need to think about getting some help, isn't it?
So who can you turn to? Well, The Office Genie of course! Here are some of the things we do for our clients:
Answering your phone & email enquiries

THE OFFICE GENIE
I had a successful 20-year career as an office manager and personal assistant; however, my job was no longer focused on the customers and became all about the numbers. My customer-focused background began when I was 12 in my father's independent carpet showroom. I had a spell with Marks & Spencer before I moved into office-based jobs. I have worked as a training administrator, a PA and PA/office manager in a variety of industries from manufacturing to the IT education sector.
Meanwhile, my husband Ian, a successful Northampton based Master Decorator and owner of Rainbow Frost, was losing out on work due to missed phone calls. When he was busy, callers were getting his voicemail but weren't leaving messages. I knew how to fix that problem!
I quit my job and took on Ian as the first client of The Office Genie in November 2005. Word quickly spread with the second client coming on board just one week later. The majority of our clients since have come to us through word of mouth recommendations and networking referrals. Over the years, I have become well connected in Northampton and Milton Keynes.
Outside of work I enjoy swimming, roller skating, the theatre and my cats and dogs!
