We are a professional organisational company established to take the hassle and stress out of your life and to free up your time so you can spend it on the things that matter to you.
We provide business support, home organisation, lifestyle management and de-cluttering services.
Where are you based?
In Glasgow, but we work within a 50-mile radius of the city and usually work from clients' offices or homes.
How did you get started?
I took the decision in January to concentrate on commissioning my website, which was designed by the award-winning and Business Gateway supported company NSDesign.
We created the branding, opened a business bank account and secured business insurance.
I then began attending Women Into Business (WIB) events, which are run by Business Gateway, to hear inspirational stories of business successes.
What is your background?
I initially trained as an architectural technician and worked in that capacity for eight years.
More recently I worked at The Lighthouse, in Glasgow, from its inception in 1998 until 2009.
I was head of finance and admin and part of the original management team, tasked with helping to set up the trust which ran the building.
What is your top tip?
If you have a viable business idea, go for it, but don't rely on anyone but yourself to make your dreams come true.
On a practical level, ensure that your records are in good order for your tax return and have money put aside to pay it.
How long has your business been running?
It's only been this year that I launched my website, www.wecanorganiseyou.co.uk
Has anyone helped you get started and how?
Business Gateway directed me towards funding from Jobs and Business Glasgow, which went towards creating my website, but the most useful advice was gained by talking to like-minded people.
The Women Into Business events were great for this and allowed me to talk through ideas with others.
What was your first deal?
I secured a contract with a major design company.
Where do you plan your business to be in five years' time?
I would like We Can Organise You to be synonymous with professional organising and second to none for customer service.
