Discover some of our SmartPA Partner's stories below:
"I've learned so much, it's really helped my confidence. I never dreamt that I would be a business owner running a successful business and having a fantastic work-life balance. It's one of the best decisions I’ve ever made career-wise, it's fantastic."
"Six months down the line there is a better work-life balance and I definitely have days during the week where I don't need to work, or I’m not missed by my clients - I’ve got that balance which is nice."
"I was the first SmartPA. My vision was to create a PA service focused not on what we did, but how we did it. To change the way the PA sector was perceived, experienced, and valued."
"There were a number of reasons a Partnership appealed to me. Firstly, flexibility. With young kids this is a must - I have tried juggling family and a career in the city and it is incredibly difficult so flexibility was really important."
"Something that I have gone on to find that I didn’t appreciate was the support and connections that you make with the other partners. I think I would have found it isolating being completely on my own and I like that I am part of a team, whilst still working for myself."
"I had been an Executive Assistant for 33 years, working for different corporations and individuals, as a salaried employee. I wanted to continue working as a Personal Assistant, but I also wanted to create my own work schedule and provide myself with more flexibility and freedom with my time."
