Virtual Assistant Solihull
I’m Namrita Sharma and I own Pink Spaghetti Solihull and have been running my virtual assistant business for four years. I’m extremely passionate about being able to help incredible entrepreneurs and creatives cut through the day-to-day noise of running a business and become more efficient, productive and, ultimately, grow!
I live in Monkspath, Solihull and work with lots of amazing businesses in my local area. I love being the extra pair of hands that every business owner didn’t know they needed! Whether it’s freeing up some time for my clients to focus on delivering the best customer service they can, work on developing their own business or just having some time to switch off and be with family and friends; seeing the real tangible difference that I can make for entrepreneurs who are often burning the midnight oil on a daily basis is what I LOVE about my job.
I often get asked if I used to be a personal assistant…and the answer is no! I actually used to be a research scientist and have two degrees (a BSc in Human Biology and MSc in Early Drug Discovery).
In between gaining these two qualifications I worked in sales and marketing at a London publishing house and I loved every minute of it! It was such a creative environment, and I was fortunate enough to quickly learn about the challenges lots of industries and sectors, such as insurance, technology and law, face and engaged extensively with delegates and speakers who are experts in in their fields.
With a strong, organised and methodical scientific approach and the ability to quickly understand challenges and seek solutions within many industries, I like to think that I am able to bring a balance of practicality and creativity to my clients.
Why a virtual assistant?
Long gone are the days of a personal assistant being the diary or meeting organiser! Of course, I can help my clients with these tasks but as a business owner myself I understand the daily challenges that my clients face; time-poor, resource-poor and just wanting to focus on what they enjoy and do best!
That’s the strength of using a virtual assistant! Many of us have extensive and impressive careers behind us and are therefore able to bring a whole host of skills from our previous professions to the table. Moreover, we work with a whole host of businesses across a number of industries and so are able to give great insight into best practice.
Best of all, hiring a virtual assistant can be a really cost-effective way of getting things done without having to worry about all of the additional costs of employment; holiday pay, sick pay, national insurance and coffee and tea breaks! Simply put…you only pay for the time it takes to do the work.
Why Pink Spaghetti?
Unlike an independent virtual assistant, as a franchise network, Pink Spaghetti is able to offer a wide range of expertise to our clients because of the variety of professional careers and skillsets we have within our network.
As well as this my clients know that I have a pool of amazing and skilled virtual assistants who I can call upon if any extra help is needed on larger projects, when I’m on holiday or off sick, so no matter what, the work always gets done!
Although we are part of a franchise network, each Pink Spaghetti virtual assistant is a business owner. We understand the challenge of wearing so many ‘hats’ every day and the difficulty of trusting someone enough to let them into your business. Becoming a part of each of my clients’ team is so rewarding no matter how much or little I work with them.
A range of Virtual PA Services
As personal assistants the tasks we help our clients with are incredibly varied but most often include social media management, marketing and communications, email marketing, sales funnels automation, business administration and organisation, diary management, responding to emails and bookkeeping. Many business owners know these tasks are crucial to run their business effectively and successfully, but also realise they don’t need to carry them out personally. Since many of these tasks have a system and process behind them they are perfect examples of ways to efficiently and effectively utilise a virtual assistant within your business.

What our Customers Say
"I have worked with a number of virtual assistants in the past and had terrible experiences due to a lack of initiative and clarity about what I wanted to achieve as a business owner. So when my business began to grow I was initially very reluctant to outsource anything. Working with Namrita over the past few years has given me great joy. Her ability to implement systems and processes and find solutions to any problem within my business has meant that I am now able to deliver the best possible service to my clients and focus on what I enjoy most."
Jayne Hume, The Women’s Wellness Business Coach, Solihull
"I'd thought about using a virtual PA so many times but always thought that it would take much longer to explain the technical elements of my work than to just do the work myself. After realising that I wasn't able to do everything in my business on my own and still deliver the best possible service to my clients, I decided to try using a virtual PA. Since working with Namrita, I have been able to complete projects at a much faster pace, focus on business development and increase my revenue."y are an integral part of my business now.”
Sarah Cox, Marketing Automation for You

She certainly takes the pressure of by answering to emails, chasing up potential leads, making calls on my behalf, managing social media presence. She has been an absolute God send. I really would recommend her service. She is very professional and innovative in her ideas and is a real problem solver."
Nicola Hemming, Women Empowering Women UK, West Midlands
