20 of the Most Inspiring Scottish Business Women

For International Women's Day 2022, Founder Maya was thrilled to be featured by Insider.co.uk as one of 20 women in business doing great work in Scotland today.

Are you Ready to Grow your Sustainable Business?

Running a business of any size is difficult and as someone with personal experience starting from scratch, I truly understand how hard it can be to keep all the plates spinning

Unfortunately, running a business with a passion for sustainability and an eco-friendly ethos adds yet another plate into the mix. So how on earth is one meant to pursue business growth if they don’t have enough hands to keep all the plates spinning?

Well luckily for you there is a solution.

Having a team of dedicated VA’s that are passionate about your success will allow you grow a profitable business and have a positive impact on the world at the same time.

As your ethical Virtual Assistant, Planner Bee VA Services can help you to keep the plates spinning and we understand that not everyone is at the same stage of their sustainability journey. That’s why we meet businesses where they are and help them take things to the next level, professionally and environmentally.

Wouldn’t you be buzzing if you had a few extra hours in the day? Well with a few more worker bees at your disposal, you can have those extra few hours whenever you need them!

Awards:

It’s been a dream come true working with Planner Bee VA Services. They have been a breath of fresh air for my business, taking the reins with all the behind-the-scenes work, and doing it so effortlessly... I’m beyond grateful for their efficiency. In many cases they have thought so proactively, always thinking ahead. They're absolutely amazing, and I’m so so happy to be working with them. THANK YOU!

Do I need an ethical Virtual Assistant?

Is all or most of your time spent maintaining rather than progressing?

Do you wish there was enough time left at the end of the week to focus purely on growth?

Are you having to turn down clients and potential business (or are you growing a long waiting list) due to lack of time?

Do you need marketing support, but don’t want to take on a full-time employee?

Are you spending lots of time on tasks that you don’t enjoy and aren’t within your zone of genius?

Do you feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done?

Are you too busy working IN your business to have time to work ON your business?

These are all solvable problems that my team and I can help you with. 

I know it can be difficult to let go of your full control when you have put your soul into what you do. But there is no need to worry! Absolutely nothing will be finalised without your stamp of approval, we’ll just do all the heavy lifting so you can focus on other things. I’ll take as much time as you need to create a personalised plan that you can feel confident and excited about!
