Helping Growing Businesses
Save Time

Are you suffering from Admin Overwhelm?
Do you take your laptop to bed with you?

As a business owner, I’m sure you find yourself wearing ALL the hats, you are the one that’s supposed to have all the answers and be able to juggle it all. I know from experience how impossible that can seem – sometimes there simply aren’t enough hours in the day.

If you’re looking for more hours in the day so you can spend more time on the things you really love about your business, then delegation is the answer.

Outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant can create so much time and energy for your business. It’s your own person to do the jobs you hate, the jobs you can’t quite get your head around, and the jobs that get in the way of you growing and scaling your business.

Hello, I am Hannah, founder of Balance VA Services.


After working for over 12 years in administration and management roles, I decided to use the knowledge and skills I had learnt to help small businesses flourish.


It started when friends and family of mine, who run their own businesses, talked about their work-life balance and essentially how non-existent it was. They worked all the hours, they missed out on new opportunities, and whilst they love what they do, they often felt depleted.


I’d regularly found myself giving them productivity and admin tips, mocking up a document template, or proof reading things before they sent them out. That’s when I realised I could do more than helping out a few friends along their way.


During my employment, I was the one senior management would come running to get things done, or make stuff work. I was the ‘troubleshooter’ and no, I did not wear a cape!. 

Nothing gives me more joy, apart from good food and wine than finding better ways of working, solving problems, and ticking those things off your list so you, as a business owner, can really focus on what needs to be done.

How does it work?


The first thing I do is arrange a meeting or call with you to discuss your needs and what you're struggling with. This also gives us a great opportunity to get to know each other.


After gathering all the information I'll look at what I can offer and put a package together for you & send a quote. This could be an ongoing monthly retainer or a one-off depending on your needs.


If you're happy with my offer, this is where the real fun begins. I get stuck into the jobs we discussed, start solving those problems and basically getting stuff done.


During the project or ongoing support I'll communicate as much or as little as you like. I will keep track of the work I do for you to ensure deadlines are met.
