These are just some of the businesses I am proud to personally recommend on a regular basis to clients and other business owners who need a little help and support in the areas that I don’t cover! (this is an ever-evolving list, so do check back if the service you are looking for isn’t covered here!).
These are businesses or services that, to my mind, provide excellent value as well as excellent quality, their customer service is bang on and the work they do leaves you feeling ready and empowered, and I am proud to call them Friends of KSVBS.

She also has the unique ability to find that inner unique youness in your brand.
Vicki works from her home office in Scotland, Fife where she spends her days designing, connecting and having some of the best laughs with simply fabulous online entrepreneurs from all over the world. When Vicki isn’t shopping for yet another slogan, sparkly jumper or floral patterned shirt, she’s spending her days with her son AJ and hubby, Paul, building copious amounts of Lego kits.
Vicki is also the creative genius that put together up my branding, and I cannot recommend her enough!
