Is your business stressing you out?
You’re good at what you do – the thing is.. as the business has grown things have got a lot more complicated!
You’re so busy with the day-to-day delivering client work, that the way you actually run your business has dropped down your list of priorities. You know there’s a better way of doings things in your business, but you just don’t have the time to figure it out.
You want to grow the business, but your lack of systems is holding you back.
Nothing has been documented and nobody knows what you know. The trouble is, you can’t be there for every meeting! And what if you’re away? Or sick? What then?
You’re stuck and not sure what to do about it. You just don’t have the knowledge or the brain space to deal with it.
And it’s stressing you out. You’re losing sleep. You’ve got a creeping sense of dread. And to make matters worse, you’re worried that it’s actually causing clients to lose faith in you and walk out the door.
You’ve spent so long building your business’ reputation, and there’s no way you’re going to let something as fundamental as your lack of systems damage all that hard work.
It doesn’t have to be like this!
“As a working mother and a business owner it’s not always easy to find a right balance between work and motherhood. I love what I do but my children are always a priority so being efficient is the main goal.
Ideally, I would like to expand the business but that means having to bring more people into the business and therefore more time (at the beginning mostly) and commitment which makes me a bit nervous.
Maria suggested some software and tools which will help with organizing the business better and documenting the processes to make it easier to pass it to new employees.
Talking with Maria gave me a better view of my business and gave me a direction on how to work more efficiently, and I would recommend her to others.Parinaz Nia
All that stress and mess is a thing of the past. Your business is now streamlined, and running more efficiently. Your people are happy and your clients are happy.
Instead of waking up with a sense of dread in the pit of your stomach each morning, you spring out of bed feeling refreshed and energized after a restful night’s sleep. You love your business again and remember why you started it in the first place!
No more firefighting. And being reactive. You’re free to make conscious choices and take on projects that light you up; working with clients you actually want to work with.
Client relationships last longer and are happier all round. Their feedback is captured and changes are implemented, so they feel valued and listened to.
You’ re finally able to grow your business at a steady pace. You’re finally able to enjoy running the business. And, most importantly you’re finally able to spend more time with your loved ones and be fully present, because you are in control of your business, and not the other way around.
This is not some pie in the sky vision! It’s real! And it’s all possible!
Hi, I’m Maria Mustapha, Director of JMA Projects. I’m a qualified project manager with a Masters in Project Management, and over 15 years’ experience. I’ve been lucky enough to work in a variety of industries; from engineering and construction, branding and marketing, to software development projects. Working as a contractor and consultant for many years, I was often frustrated that despite the huge range of tools and software on the market that would make our jobs so much easier, there was hardly ever time to implement them! Even with smaller, more agile companies, the problem was the same. Not enough time or resources to try out new tools meant that they were stuck with the older, less efficient methods Particularly, when there’s a more efficient way to:
- track projects
- produce progress reports
- onboard new team members
- improve team communication and collaboration
I totally get it! But knowing there’s a better way of doing all these things drove me mad!
So nowadays, instead of being the frustrated Project Manager, I help SMEs design streamlined systems so that they can deliver a better service to their clients.
My Business Systems Strategy Service is going to turn your business from stress to streamlined and set for expansion.
It’s going to:
- streamline processes

It’s up to you! Carry on stuck with the growing pains and stress! Or take action and get streamlined and grow your business!
