"SmartPA has had an enormous impact on my life - it has enabled me to establish myself and run my own business from home.
I have been able to leave the corporate world behind with the long hours and hardly seeing my family, to a life of working the hours I please, doing the school run, having dinner with my children, doing bath time and, finally, building my own business whilst reaping all the other rewards I aim for daily.”
Mbali Khulu, South Africa
"What I love most about my job? The freedom, autonomy and flexibility it comes with. It challenges me to continually develop myself. The new knowledge and skills I gain every day. The nature and quality of my working relationships with my clients. The opportunity to deliver on difficult tasks through innovative/creative thinking. Having the freedom to create, improvise and be entrepreneurial. And, on the most basic level, I enjoy working with and talking to people. My job provides me with an opportunity to put that basic urge to use."
Daniella Khan, Scotland
"As an employee and mother, I always felt torn between my responsibilities for both roles and never felt I was giving either my best attention and effort.
As a SmartPA Partner, I can be a good Mum, go to all my children’s events etc and still manage to work when they are off sick. I don’t have to pay for childcare at present. I also get to work for amazing clients and see what a difference I can make to their business which is really rewarding."
Petronella Mhlanga, Abu Dhabi
"As a mum-to-be, becoming a SmartPA allows me to pursue my dream of fulfilling my motherly role whilst developing my professional repertoire."
