I am a reasonably new graphic design startup myself and have an ever-expanding workload and client base. I struggle to find time to keep up with just the demands of my clients, never mind keeping all my administrative paperwork up-to-date.
Like most business owners, I prefer sending out sales invoices and seeing the money entering my account rather than sitting down inputting purchase invoices, proofreading, searching for specific information on a precise topic or other administrative duties. By utilising Kristina’s business skills (and patience), I can concentrate on my client’s needs and have more time to be productive and focus on what I do best.
Utilising some of the latest online apps and software, we have a great system setup which allows Kristina to do all my necessary data entries without having to always be on the other end of a phone or emailing. Every time Kristina has completed a task or is nearing a pre-agreed set amount of time, I get a detailed report of where she is with that project. I am always impressed knowing it would genuinely take me at least double the amount of time.
Working with Kristina is not only enjoyable due to her sense of humour and professionalism but its because I feel she has a vital role in my expanding business without having the worry and intricacies of actually being her employer. It’s a win-win situation.
