A BASINGSTOKE mum has launched a personal assistant company with a difference.

Trading as Pink Spaghetti Basingstoke, Mandi Martin will be offering her time and experience to local small business owners, consultants, freelancers and home owners.

She said: “Basically, my service is pay-as-you-go. There is a diverse range of small businesses in this area, 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 essential tasks that nobody started their business to do - from managing social media accounts to admin, decluttering, bookkeeping and creating newsletters.

"Pink Spaghetti exists to take away the legwork from a business owner, releasing more time for them to spend on the parts of the business that they love.

“I believe I am unique in that I offer small businesses as many hours of support as they need, without any commitment or ties to a regular contract.”

Mandi anticipates that many of her Pink Spaghetti clients will, like her, be solo entrepreneurs: experts in their own field, who struggle to find the time to keep up with the back office tasks so necessary for running a business.

She added: “Running my own business will be a new challenge, but one I am very much looking forward to. As a mum of two, I am looking forward to gaining a better work life balance, and also helping other busy business people achieve this.”
