Hi I'm John. I'm a freelance Virtual Assistant and I'm the owner, namesake and face of John Paul Andrew. It's my mission to get my clients back on track, keep them organised, grow their business and restore balance and order in their life. I do this by providing affordable, no hassle admin and business support services for both their work and personal life.
Between the demands of running a business or work commitments. Organising your personal life. Not to mention everything else that happens in-between. Most people if you ask them will tell you they feel they are struggling to stay afloat and life feels chaotic. Does this sound familiar? A Virtual Assistant such as myself can be the ideal solution to getting you back to a place of balance and order.
As a small business owner myself, I know there are times you just need an extra pair of hands. Help to get you through an ever increasing backlog of work. Someone to bounce new ideas off or to keep you on track motivated and focused. For the small or new business owner more often than not it isn't always practical to be employing staff...
This is where a Virtual Assistant such as myself can step in and give you that much needed helping hand and support mechanism. Having someone supporting you that is passionate about your business gives you a degree of confidence knowing you don't have to do it all on your own, and when you do need time out or are overrun you can know it's in safe hands.
Whether it's engaging with your new clients, updating your CRM system, answering your phone or dealing with emails I can help. Need some personal tasks undertaken? Researching the best deal for your home utilities? Sorting a romantic getaway? - Consider it done. Your life shouldn't be stressful so let's get you back to calm and order.
I'm a self confessed gaming geek, dog lover, netflix junkie, organisation, colour coding and labelling obsessed virtual assistant, and I love meeting new people.
When I'm not on some organisational frenzy and don't have a label machine in my hand you can usually find me at home in the lovely historic city of Lancaster, down the pub with friends, or at the cinema checking out the latest action movie.

A mentor once told me a quote. "The worst decision is indecision." It's better to make a choice, and find yourself down the wrong path, than stood at the crossroads still deciding, as life passes you by. I've lived by this ever since.
So my name is actually John Paul Andrew Catherall. A lifetime of people struggling with my surname asking 'how do you spell that?' wild guesses and wonderful variations made the use of my surname in my business a definitive non starter. I've been called everything from Cathedral to Casserole and seen a 101 variations on spelling. Talking it over with friends and family I opted for using my middle names, hence John Paul Andrew
Chocolate Ice Cream... I know right? After expressing my love of both items you'd rightly question this, but for me the combination is foul.
All things sweet. Chocolate, icecream, sweets, pastries, pies and anything else you can think of. I just can't get enough of them. they are always a good bet if trying to win me over, cheer me up or gain my trust.
Growing up I was always going to be a pastry chef and run my own boutique tearoom. 1 week work experience at school in a hotel kitchen shattered that dream. #childhood
"The simple truth is my business would not be what it is today, without John. Easily the best business decision I've made to date, and after 3 years, one Ive not come to regret. Can't recommend him enough."
"Totally loved working with John. He really understood our business needs, and helped us focus on the issues we were facing and move past them. Thoroughly recommend!"
I absolutely love my new website and so do my customers. John totally understood where I wanted to go with my brand, and has helped every step of the way.
