grow your business"
Providing Remote Administrative Support & Consultancy Services to Business Owners & Entrepreneurs.
Why choose TAKO?
As a business owner, I’m guessing you started your business because you’re great at what you do. You’re passionate about making a difference to your clients and you want your business to be a success.
The problem is, you don’t have the time to do it all yourself.
You’re a smart person. You understand each part of your business and you’re good at what you do. In fact, you probably spend a lot of your time rushing to attend meetings, speaking with clients and looking to agree terms with suppliers, in order to make your business a success.
But as good as you are, you can’t do everything alone. You cannot focus on your strengths, whilst also trying to manage your weaknesses.
What you really want is to outsource the administration and bookkeeping, as well as the tools and systems needed to support your business, to someone else. You want someone to set up the tools and systems needed, to support your business whilst it grows. You want your back-office managed, so you can free up your time to focus on what you do best.
And that’s where TAKO Virtual Solutions comes in.
I’m here to remotely manage those back-office tasks for you, to free up your time so you can get back to being you at your best. I’m here to implement the structure and systems your business needs, to keep things organised, on track and heading in the right direction.
I have tried and tested methods that have proved highly successful – See my testimonials below.
