A Haddenham mum is planning to use her skills to help out other busy business parents.

Rachel Martin has just launched a personal assistant company with a difference. Trading as Pink Spaghetti, the mum-of-one will sell her time and experience by the hour to local small business owners, consultants, freelancers and home owners.

"There's a burgeoning number of micro-businesses across Buckinghamshire," explained Rachel, "many of which operate from people's homes and are not in a position to employ a full time or even part time assistant.

"That is where I come in. I can take over the tasks that no business owner enjoys, from doing their social media to finding new suppliers, negotiating deals, and creating newsletters. Basically, Pink Spaghetti exists to take away the leg work from a business owner and give them more time to spend on the parts of their business that they enjoy.

"I believe I am unique in that I offer small businesses as many hours of support they want, without making them commit to a regular contract".

Rachel's buisness pedigree is immaculate, with 18 years experience within the financial services industry, most of that time in project management roles. With a young family at home, she recently left a senior management role with Santander to look for a better work life balance.

She anticipates that many of her Pink Spaghetti clients will be working mums, juggling businesses and domestic tasks throughout the day.

"This is my life too!" she said "and I completely understand if someone wants me to seek out a venue for a child's party, eBay items for them, or find a reliable cleaner".
