A Day In The Life Of…
People are often curious about the sort of tasks we undertake for our clients, so we thought it would be fun to take you through a day in the life of a Pink Spaghetti PA. We chose a Wednesday, and Caroline recorded every activity she undertook – and here’s the result!
Since launching Pink Spaghetti I have learned to expect the unexpected! Today we woke to an overnight request from a customer asking us to source accommodation for an event being held in a week’s time in the Cotswolds and also had a 9am call from a new customer in London, needing help to source a present for his office manager, whose birthday was two days away!
These dealt with, I then: sorted, entered and filed receipts for a new client who has launched a jewellery business; talked to a customer about the access we need to their stock control system to update it every month; researched a new branded pricing label for a customer; completed a social media analysis for a fashion shop owner and completed a report on courier services for a client with an e-tail business. Phew!
After a quick lunch (brought from home, as there’s never time to nip out!) I started on a pile of items for listing on eBay. Today’s items, as well as the usual fashion, include a wheelchair, a clarinet and a crockpot!
Before I know it, it’s time to go home. A quick look at tomorrow’s diary advises me that I have an appointment with a potential client, a social media training session for a new client and a rather complex set of travel plans to arrange for a long-term client! Vicky is party planning for a customer who wants a sporting themed event for her husband’s birthday and sourcing promotional gifts for a construction supplies firm, plus anything else that crops up unexpectedly!
All our customers have one thing in common, they are short of time. Delegation can be key to success, so they delegate to us in the knowledge that we are experienced, efficient and can be trusted to support them whenever, and however, they need us. No two days are the same – and that’s the way we like it!
