I was a bit stuck for a post this month. The creative juices just weren’t flowing freely. I suspect a holiday is needed and thank goodness, one is booked for the end of this month!

So, I have decided to elaborate on the ‘About Us‘ page and offer more about me as the founder/owner of Interim Business Solutions. Who I am, what I like to do outside of my business life and what I stand for as a business owner.

More About Me

  • I’m 40 something, happily married with two children.
  • I live in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
  • My business is home-based.
  • I love to garden but don’t seem to have the time for it like I used to. Yes, there are weeds!
  • I don’t like my home-office. I have outgrown it and would like more natural light.
  • I grew up with many pets including a Scotch Collie dog, chickens, duck, budgies and horses. I now have a cat only!
  • I detest cooking and most domestic jobs.
  • My nickname was Ollie during university days. Go figure!
  • I had no aspirations to do office work when I was younger. I wanted to be a park ranger or mounted policewomen and became a teacher.
  • I studied at Deakin University in Geelong.
  • I’m definitely not a geek. Computer hardware scares me!
  • After Uni, I lived overseas for 2.5 years and travelled Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
  • I love everything about travelling to exotic destinations.
  • Smoked salmon and sushi are my favourite foods.
  • I haven’t eaten red meat in more than 30 years!
  • I was very athletic as a child. I ran…everywhere, I rode horses, I played tennis, softball, badminton,ย cricket, I could kick a footy better than half the boys at school but was a useless swimmer!
  • I don’t like noisy crowds.
  • My attention to detail is typical of anyone working in Administration. I’m anal!
  • I’m itching to return to Spain and Italy, and visit Myanmar before it’s the next big tourist destination.
  • My favourite wine is a full-bodied, oaky Chardonnay and I love my wine!
  • I’ve travelled to more than 35 countries and there WILL be more!
  • I love Friday nights which always include a drop of wine!
  • My favourite movies include Baraka, the Bourne trilogy, The last of the Mohicans, The Piano and Mongol.
  • I have built my business by successfully using social media.
  • I’m a country bumpkin at heart and definitely not a city slicker, and
  • I love my family and friends!

 

Business Values

I’m not in business to be the cheapest. I’m in business to offer my experience, skills and expertise to my client base. I will also ensure the team I build around me will have the same values and be highly skilled in their area. This will be provided, together with exceptional customer service, reliability and integrity.

I love the work I do and the people I get to work with!

  3. Well there is NOW!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great post and a good idea Kirsty. I might pinch it for my own blog! LOL

  4. Go for it Lyn and let me know when it’s live so I can read all about you!

    Well done to your husband. I wish other men had the get up and go that he obviously has. So many men go into depression and have no thoughts about retraining, finding something new and exciting, a whole new life.
    One door closes and another opens and I bet he won’t need the sports car as he heads towards 50.

  6. Thanks Marsha. You’ve obviously just read my September Newsletter! It’s something he’s been thinking of for a while but when you have a secure job it’s hard to make the move. The redundancy forced the move!

  8. Love the post Kirsty – great idea and personable too. I might have to pinch that one too. What can I say but thanks to Social Media I have been able to meet, know and learn from wonderful people and business owners like yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰
