Life is super busy these days, everyone complains there’s not enough hours in the day. Running a business, especially as a sole operator, is hard work and demanding! Then add to the mix your family demands, running kids here there and everywhere, trying to fit in exercise, is it any wonder you get overwhelmed and stressed, home life suffers, YOU suffer, it’s just not good for anyone!
So that’s where I come in. I’m your spare pair of hands to get things done. To help take the pressure off so you can breathe and enjoy life again. Spend more time on the things that only YOU can do. Spend time having FUN with your family and loved ones. Focus on your business so you can get it growing.
Hired Help is based at beautiful Mount Maunganui in the Bay of Plenty. With most of my work being virtual (online), helping small business owners with their website creation and admin, newsletters and client emails, I'm blessed to live in such a gorgeous part of the country. I get to take break by going for a beach walk, grab a coffee and then get back to work whenever I want - I love my life!
Paula Johnson (that’s me) is the creator and your spare pair of hands when you need it the most! I'm available to help you when it feels impossible to help yourself...
I have an extensive range of practical life, small business, and office admin/finance experience, so my idea of putting all these skills to great use for the benefit of others is something I am hugely passionate about.
“I’m a people person. I love helping people, and I love variety. Hired Help is the perfect solution for everyone – for me to share my skills and knowledge and have the fulfilment of helping others, and for my clients to benefit and breathe balance back into their busy lives knowing there’s one less thing they have to worry about.”
I’ve spent over 30 years in office administration and finance roles, from Office Manager, Assistant Accountant, Payroll Officer, Accounts Payable Administrator, Customer Service and everything in between.
I have vast amounts of practical life experience. I have moved house countless times, have participated in expos, markets and conferences, worked in retail, the wedding industry, hosted retreats, and built and maintain my own blog website.
I’m mature (ahem - not old), I have common sense, I’m reliable, I have a ‘can do’ attitude (obviously, otherwise I wouldn’t be doing this), I’m solutions focused, thinking outside the box and quite often see things in a different way to others and can come up with some great ideas.
I am an ‘attention to detail’ person. I'm a born creative and having worked with balancing numbers most of my working life I can easily see when something is not quite right, whether that be administrative or practically.
I guarantee satisfaction - know the job will get done to your satisfaction or you don’t pay.
I help take the pressure/stress off you to get everything done. The health benefits of this alone are huge.
Spend more time on important things only you can do.
Spend more time with your precious family and friends.
Work on your business instead of in it.
Know your job will get done to a high standard.
Know you have someone who is reliable, mature and has good common sense helping you.
I’m versatile! There are many areas I can help you in. Deal with one person and know whatever you ask will get done.
