Buy yourself some time to focus on your business passion

Click here to reward a small business that provides great service with a nomination for 2016's Small Business Awards with CapeTalk and Sage One.

Buy Some Time was nominated by client Anthony who says time is the most important resource especially when you starting up your own business.

Rachel Gregorowski is the owner of Buy Some Time, and she and her team will complete any tasks online that you need doing, offering great support to small businesses.

We're a virtual PA service essentially, and our aim is to give people back more time so that they can focus on what they're really passionate about.

They work with entrepreneurs and start-ups. She says they've got to the point where they starting to get really busy, but do not have time to organise admin.

We help them streamline their procedures.

Rachel Gregorowski, Buy Some Time

Small businesses cannot always afford to employ a full-time PA and that is where Buy Some Time steps in and provides tailor-made solutions for that particular business.

Gregorowski says learning to price correctly is a challenge, and you make mistakes and learn along the way.

She says customer service is key and building your reputation comes from providing a really good service.
