About You!

A staggering amount of business owners are overwhelmed with the day-to-day grind of their business. I speak with clients on a daily basis about their issues. Mostly, it is related to time, stress, and organisation. This all leads to less time with their families and friends, and more time stuck in the day-to-day activities of their businesses.

They come to me to avail of my tech knowledge, organisation skills, and coaching background. I help them take back control over their business and grow their revenue streams. You only need the courage to start today and push through overwhelm.

My Story

(just in case you’re interested in how I got here)

In 1994, having qualified from University and working in Finance Administration in the Manufacturing Industry for 3 years, I left Ireland to travel extensively across Africa, South America, Central America, USA, and Canada. For many, this is a trip of a lifetime. It was for me! It was also the beginning of my love affair with travel and experiencing other cultures.

My return to Ireland in 2000 instigated my involvement in training and development. While working as an Office Manager, I went to college in the evenings and began my training experience part-time.

After a few years of working for others in a 9-5 environment (well it was more like 8-6), I felt I needed some direction in my life. In 2004, I developed my training experience further and left the comforts of employee-ship to become a Training Contractor. I also came across Life Coaching in 2004. This proved to be the catalyst of many great happenings for me.

I qualified in Personal and Business Coaching to pursue my passion for positive change. In 2007, I set up a Training and Coaching business in Ireland where I moved into providing remote training and coaching sessions. It was wonderful to work again with different nationalities and cultures, despite certain language barriers. Designing and facilitating workshops for small business owners around Ireland were empowering experiences.

My passion and interest in people has stemmed from a long career in Training and Developing people out of and beyond their comfort zones. I advanced my Coaching skills in the areas of Career Coaching. I developed a coaching practice in my home, to accommodate personal clients looking to improve their personal relationships, work prospects, or explore business possibilities.

In 2013, I left my homeland again to live in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the SW of France, and another new chapter in my life began. I have now changed the way I work to be more in line with my lifestyle, hence my move into the virtual world.

I work with business owners like you, to develop the crucial aspects of your business and enhance your personal & professional effectiveness. My aim is work/life integration. It is also my wish for you and the success of your business.

It's a pleasure to work with Elaine!

Coming from a coaching background and combined with her experience as a VA, I believed Elaine would understand the challenges I faced and be in a position to work with me.
Elaine’s professionalism and attention to detail is exemplary. She has excellent communication skills and an amazing ability to make complex areas understandable. Elaine has helped me look at how I run my business generally, which is an added value way beyond our work with GDPR.

Elaine has knocked it out of the park! (GDPR)

As expected, Elaine has knocked it out of the park in terms of being organised, knowledgeable, telling me exactly what I needed to do and when. She turned around the work in a very short timeframe, making my GDPR compliance project as easy as possible for me.

Liz Barron ~ Realize Coaching  Consulting

I think Elaine's fantastic!

If you lack order, efficiency and technical know-how, and you want to take your business to the next level, Elaine is the springboard for you. She'll help you scale your content and your business, and you'll have fun along the way.

I immediately felt I was in good hands! (GDPR)

The way Elaine approached GDPR was thorough and methodical and I immediately felt I was in good hands. I felt like I didn’t need to worry about it, just wait for the next email telling me what to do! And that is exactly what I wanted.

If you want someone to “sort out” GDPR for you then call Elaine! Her thorough and documented approach means GDPR compliance won’t keep you up at night.

From start to finish Elaine is amazing!

I am a control freak so handing something over and not micromanaging is difficult for me but with Elaine, I am able to just send the info and leave her to it, and the results are always perfect. I know how difficult it is to find really good support and how bad experiences can put people off outsourcing, but not outsourcing prevents you from growing your business, so finding the right person is imperative and Elaine is that person.

Michelle Nunan ~ Divisoup and & Pink Gecko Media

Elaine just gets the job done!

Elaine came highly recommended. She is always on time, always proactive rather than reactive (I like that), and a lovely person too. She’s easy to work with, works to a minimal brief, and just gets the job done.

Andrew Palmer ~ Elegant Marketplace

I wish I could work with Elaine full-time!

When I spoke with Elaine, I was impressed with her knowledge and aptitude. She is organised, exceptionally capable, and knowledgeable about business and marketing. Elaine is truly exceptional at her job and she consistently goes over and above the call of duty to help me deliver results in a very short time.

Emma D'Arcy ~ Emma D Marketing

Elaine does an excellent job!

Recently Elaine worked with one of our clients to produce website content by interviewing, corresponding and writing SEO friendly content. She treated our client with respect and did an excellent job.

I encourage anyone looking for this service to avail of Elaine’s talents in this area.

Niamh Ni Chearbhaill ~ Spiralli Business Solutions

Elaine is Awesome!!

She has worked with us in a number of different capacities over the last number of years and most recently as a virtual trainer delivering training in ‘Social Media for Business’ webinars for one of our largest clients. Elaine always goes above and beyond of what is expected of her and is a true professional in everything she does.

Marieanne O'Driscoll ~ E-Bridge Training

Elaine is responsive, creative, and thorough.

Elaine came highly recommended. She is responsive, creative, understands the briefs and delivers precisely to it. She questions and clarifies as needed. Elaine is a great person to work with. She is creative and very thorough. She makes sure she understands what is needed and delivers what she promises, on time.
