Hi Everyone,

Debbie owns Pink Spaghetti Bromley and will be assisting me with all the Makeup and Beauty admin tasks – big and small including my blog..

After a long search I have found someone, who has displayed the talent, professionalism and drive to provide my small business with an administration service - things which are most important in running a successful business in this hectic Beauty and Fashion Industry.

Debbie Tilley Pink Spaghetti Bromley

Welcome Debbie 

Tell us about Pink Spaghetti and what you do.
Thank you, Cheryl - It's great to be on board! Pink Spaghetti is a virtual assistant business that specialises in helping small business owners to do all the things they don’t have time to do themselves. For some clients, that’s social media, email marketing and website updates, but for others it’s general admin, organisation and bookkeeping. It really does vary according to what the client likes (and doesn’t like) doing themselves.

What kind of clients do you work with?
My clients range from property management companies to frazzled mothers. Many of my clients are women business owners - probably because it's very often the woman of the household who is juggling not just their own business, but also a family and a busy household.

What made you go into business by yourself?
My mother ran a successful hairdressing business and she always talked so passionately about it. I have very fond memories of coming home from school to find ladies sat in the kitchen with their hair in curlers!

When I started a family of my own, it was a no-brainer. I wanted to be there for my daughter like my mum was. But I also wanted to have a career that I love. My mother died many years ago, but I still have the sign from her business on my wall and I hope she would be proud of me.

What’s the biggest challenge when running your business?

Work-life balance! My husband is also self-employed and it’s a constant juggle with my clients, his clients and childcare. My daughter got juice into my phone a couple of weeks ago and I was off radar for about a week while it got repaired. It was incredibly liberating!

Once your alarm goes off… I don’t have an alarm, I have a two-year-old! On the times when an alarm is needed though, I hit snooze at least three times. As a result, I always set my alarm 15-30 minutes before I actually need to get up.

My happy place is… a rock overlooking the ocean on an island just off the coast of Croatia with the sun going down and Otis Redding on my iPod. Bliss.
