Our Owner & Director
I Am Claire, Founder, Director, Normal Working Mum Of Admin No. 1 Ltd.
My dream for as long as I’ve been old enough to work has been to be my own boss, a “Director”. I feel like Admin No.1 is my dream and I still pinch myself every day that it is real. Always grateful and always humble.
I have always had drive, and I have always had vision. As I grew older (and some may say wiser), I always worked hard,
I married and had two amazing boys. For a while nothing else but being a mum mattered. Roll on about 8 years… I sadly went through a divorce and I lost the life I knew. I was lost. I had to start life all over again… but then I realised I could start and do anything I wanted, a new chapter and a blank page.
I used that time to assess my life and realised I had to find the courage to stop what I was doing, change the pattern to get a better life for myself and the two boys I had responsibility for (it was daunting). I wasn’t sure what I needed to do, other than survive! I had been bumbling through the days waiting for a small pay packet and I had to evaluate where I was and what I was doing. I soon realised nothing would change until I did. I quickly learnt that until we change something – life remains the same.
This wasn’t just an overnight realisation, the change came by spending my time building some strong friendships, great working relationships and networking. These good people drilled into me that I should go for my dream, work for myself. They instilled confidence into me that I could do it, I would do it and I would be great at it! That support gave me so much self-worth in myself. Without their support, this wouldn’t have all started – so gratitude to my friends and those who have supported me along the way.
So, now you know a little about me.
If you are now asking yourself why would you work with me and my Admin No. 1 team.. Well, I have worked in small offices, corporate offices, nice offices, unpleasant offices… I’ve worked at the bottom and I’ve been up at the top! My point is, having been in these various environments, I’ve realised that you work to the standard you expect to receive in return, no matter what the job. It is you who makes a job what it is. By you, I mean us. We make the job a priority. I want to offer a better service, a friendlier service and an all-round better standard…
To me you count. As my client YOU matter, and we will find a way to get the service that fits you and your business’s needs.
