Early last month I welcomed my beautiful baby boy to the world. He’s now six weeks old, and although I’m biased, I reckon he’s the most gorgeous boy ever! I’m a very proud mumpreneur 🙂
Because I’m self-employed (and because I love my job), maternity leave was never on the cards. So after a couple weeks “holiday”, I was back at the keyboard. And thanks to my baby sling, smart working practices and female ability to multitask, I’ve become a dab hand at juggling copywriting alongside nappies and milk.
There’s never a dull moment in my house!
All I can say is thank goodness I’ve got a good boss 😉 It’s brilliant being able to set my own schedule and have the freedom and flexibility to work around my family – it’s one of the main reasons I started Gem Writing in the first place.

How to get more done in less time
As you can imagine, the arrival of my little lad has made my time even more precious. I’m more conscious of the need to work productively and efficiently and eliminate those procrastination pixies!
And one way I ensure that happens is with my favourite piece of software – SpinLessPlates.
So read on and I’ll explain how this cost effective, multi-functional, business management tool is helping me do business and motherhood.
My question to you is could it work for you too?
With SpinLessPlates, my business management is sorted
When you run your own business, time is your most valuable resource.
That’s because more time equals more money, more progress or more time with your family and friends.
But with so many demands on you, it’s very easy to end up fire fighting and struggling to achieve the important tasks that will take you closer to your big business goals.
One way to get more time is to streamline the back end administration and business management tasks. And that’s exactly what SpinLessPlates does for me…
SpinLessPlates has transformed my small business
SpinLessPlates has allowed me to bin the inefficient management tools I previously relied on. Here are five reasons why I wouldn’t be without it…
- The Project Timer helps me track my time. Now I can see, in black and white, how long I’ve spent on a job and therefore how much I’ve really earned per hour.
- The quote, sales & invoicing tool help me to manage my back end admin. I use it to record sales and then convert those into an invoice. It’s quick, easy and far more professional than my old Word and Excel solution.
- With the ability to generate over 60 reports, Spin instantly gives me the analytical data I need to make the right decisions for my business.
- The Live dashboard lets me see at a glance what jobs are live, which quotes need chasing up and how much I’ve invoiced.
- The customer contact tool acts as a mini CRM, and because it integrates with MailChimp, I can automate some of my emails.
And best of all, it’s really easy to use – even for a non-techy like me!
