The Lady in the Shed

Supporting small businesses, just like yours, so you can do whatever you do

It’s hectic running your own business, isn’t it?

It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the tedious day to day tasks you need to do to keep the show on the road and even though you’re working 10 or 12 hour days you regularly run out of time.

It’s not quite what you imagined when you started out, is it?

What you really want is to do whatever you do, be in control and grow your business without all the other stuff that doesn’t really interest you, but gets in the way.

Sarah Liddle of Brickyard Business Solutions

And that’s where I come in – with admin and marketing solutions

I’m Sarah Liddle and I offer admin and marketing support to small businesses. I’m based on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border and I’m a professional doer of things that need doing. I actually like doing all the other stuff that’s essential for your business, but not what you signed up to do.

Hire me to deal with some of your to-do list. Maybe the tasks that sap your energy or ones that don’t motivate you or you know someone else can do better … and probably quicker.

And you can then concentrate on your client consultations, inspecting trees, carrying out surveys, developing your first new product in ages or whatever else it is you do.

You don’t have to be stressed to be successful and you don’t have to do it alone. You deserve the help you need to get where your want to go. Allow yourself to ask for it.

Sarah is one of the most reliable and conscientious people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She consistently delivers to a high standard and always on time.

Lucy Temple

Sarah has a most refreshing blend of traditional values, yet with up to date skills. She has the attention to detail of a hawk, yet is as tenacious as her beloved terrier!

Ben Bennett

I have been very impressed with the speed and quality of her work. Sarah listens really carefully to the brief and presents her results clearly and in detail.

Let's talk about how I can support you and your business



Hire me for the time you need me, whether that’s the odd hour or two here and there or 25 hours or more every week.

Or I can manage and complete a whole project for you, whether that’s developing your website or co-ordinating a tender bid.



I specialise in making life easier for people just like you.

With over 20 years experience of working in a variety of industries, I can turn my hand to most things you’re likely to ask me to do. I’m pretty tech savvy too, so if I don’t know how to do something, I’ll learn.



It’s a no brainer really.

My hourly rate is lower than yours, right? So why are you spending so much of your valuable time doing what I can do? Let me do it.

And because I’m self employed, there are no overheads. You just pay for the time I’m working for you.


Time saving

Just think about it, once you’ve let me know how you want things done, you’ll never have to do those things again.

You can consider them done.

That’s hours of your valuable time saved.
