Summary

 Hi, my name is Rebecca Bostock and I am a virtual assistant located in Staffordshire.

 My goal is to make your life easier.... I can look after the admin, social media, website and accounts of your business - while you build your dream business.

Running a business takes lots of time and energy and this is before you start the admin.  As a virtual assistant I can support you by completing the tasks you hate - while you get to work on the tasks you love - which was probably your inspiration for setting up your business!!

Please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Virtual Satsuma is fully insured by Policy Bee and registered with the ICO - ZA822774.

 For more information please visit my website at www.virtualsatsuma.com.

Looking forward to working with you.
