Why "a quieter space" ?
Hi, I'm Dina.
The name a quieter space came from a feeling I had a couple of years ago.
It dawned on me that as the world was getting busier and noisier, there was a growing need for people to carve out their own sanctuary. People would need to filter through everything that they are bombarded with on a daily basis, to streamline their growing to do lists and to figure out what really matters to them. Hopefully they would reach a place that was a little more calm.
It wouldn’t be perfect or silent, because that’s not realistic.
But it would be quieter: a quieter space.
As a busy city-dweller and a business owner, I know what it feels like to be overwhelmed.
That said, my family and friends say that I’m calm – I don’t talk much, but I get to the point. I can usually see how to solve a problem in a streamlined way, and I can get things done without causing a fuss. I use this minimal approach in all aspects of my life and I truly believe less is more.
I have spent years moving between roles in Finance and Project Management, but I have always preferred working with small businesses where I can really get stuck in. I love to feel useful and I get a lot of satisfaction from helping others.
I also have an interest in nature & wellness, and I believe in a more “whole” approach to feeling good.
Now I enjoy working as a virtual assistant, helping small business owners & individuals to simplify & declutter their admin & bookkeeping.
At a quieter space, I would like to understand your business and/or your life and be an ear to listen when you feel overwhelmed. I can help you to put systems in place to streamline your day, which will hopefully help you to create your quieter space.
I could help you with:
Organising invoices & receipts, keeping records to make tax returns easier later on
Preparing documentation & reports for your accountant
Reconciling your bank account, categorising your income & expenses
Categorising your personal spending, so you know where you stand
Providing reports that clearly show how well your business is doing so you can understand your numbers
Sorting documents into folders and files, so you can find what you need quickly
Chasing any overdue invoices, saving you the awkward conversation with your clients
Proofreading or transcribing handwritten notes or voice recordings
Creating systems & spreadsheets that you understand so that you feel confident with your business figures
I can work alongside you as your virtual assistant either as ongoing monthly support or on a task specific basis. Please send me a message to see how we can work together or to ask any questions you might have. I am based in West Sussex, United Kingdom so might be able to offer a home or office visit if you are nearby.
