Hi, I’m Liz Bailey, a Freelance Secretary
Who I Work With
As a freelance secretary, I help people make their ideas reality by doing the bits they think of as boring and time-consuming such as typing, admin and dealing with technology. In particular, I like to work with creative people who often see themselves as disorganised. I see them as concentrating on the bigger picture and they inspire. They are the ones who say to me “Can’t your computer do that somehow?” They don’t need to know how it works, they just want the result.
Where I Live
I live in semi-rural North-East Wales, halfway between Wrexham and Llangollen. Despite that, I’m only 20 minutes drive from Chester and an hour from either Liverpool or Manchester. I haven’t always lived here though. I was born, lived and worked in Nottingham until 2003 when I got married and left the city. North Wales is a beautiful place to live and I love it here, did I mention it’s only 45 minutes drive to the nearest beach?
A Bit About Me
I’m married, have 3 cats and an abundance of nephews and nieces. From time to time I like to go for a walk, in fact, I’ve managed to make it up Snowdon 3 times. In the summer I head for the beach as often as possible, but in the winter you will most likely find me by the log burner, indulging my passion for crochet.
You can call me Liz, Lizzie or Elizabeth, I answer to them all. I’ve even been known to answer to the name Brian!
Becoming a Secretary
I started office work in Nottingham, as a receptionist and junior typist, doing both copy typing and audio typing, then becoming a secretary and not long afterwards – a PA.
A few car parks with strict clamping companies were given to me to look after. I must have done a good job of managing the tenants and clamping company because I ended up with a portfolio of properties to look after. The full title of that job was Property Management Administrator.
Throughout my career what I have enjoyed most is supporting various creative professionals develop their ideas, they think it and I implement it! I also feel triumphant when a disorganised person asks for an address, phone number or other information and I have it there to hand!
I started Love Typing initially as a typing service, however, once I got to know all the software and technology available for online workers I have added additional services so that I can be a Virtual Assistant or freelance secretary / PA.
