Hello there. I’m Annie St. Germain of Keep It Simple Admin, and one of my passions is helping people in business. I am a very giving person by nature, and this is one of the ways I can follow my life’s calling.
What do I do in my ‘spare’ time? I am a crafty wench. I sew. I knit. I crochet. I have another business called Annie’s Boho Boutique with both a stand alone Web site, and an Etsy Shop. This is where I offer items for sale that I design and put together. I deal mostly in tote bags, clutch handbags, purses and pouches, with a colorful, original, and somewhat bohemian style.
I’m also a geeky wench. Another one of my life’s callings is to be running my own show. I love creating Web sites, managing social media accounts, working with time management, and keeping documents organized. I do all my own Web configuration and design, all my own bookkeeping, everything involved with running a business. It’s an absolute passion with me and needless to say, I spend a LOT of my time in front of my computer, and my phone and tablet is always ‘on my person’!
And oh – I also sing in a band.
I have years of experience in the corporate world. I’ve dealt with all kinds of personalities, been thrown into all kinds of job situations; environments and work tasks. If working in the corporate world has taught me anything, it’s how to be flexible, how to be innovative, and how to say no to doing something you know is not going to bring you closer to living your passion.
Another reason I’m in this business, is that I absolutely LOVE helping people either find their true passions, or find a way to get back to them.
Here it is. The quintessential segue…
Sometimes, we as business owners find ourselves undeniably caught up in the minutia of what actually keeps our business running smoothly.
Oh wait – doesn’t Keep It Simple Admin take care of all this stuff?
If you could delegate some of this minutia, how much time would you have to spend on actually growing your business and nailing down new revenue streams, servicing your customers, or even just having more time for yourself and (dare I say it) more time for your family and friends?
The benefits are many. Perhaps engage in a 10 minute Internet research session. Find out for yourself if outsourcing your business back end is the right choice for you and a positive direction to take your business.
Thank you for taking the time to read my little intro, and thanks again for considering Keep It Simple Admin as your administrative support services provider.
