Tell us a little about who you are and what you do...

Hi, I'm Amanda Scurr, founder and Virtual Assistant at Adminiscurr, providing admin and business support to other business owners.

What does success mean to you, right now?

Running a business which I enjoy, generating enough income to cover what I need whilst still having time to take care of myself, do the things I like doing and spend time with my friends and family.

What do you love about what you do?

Helping people, solving problems and feeling like I’ve made a difference.

What do you find most challenging?

Saying no and learning not to take things personally.

What's your biggest achievement(s) to date?

Starting a business from scratch and still being here almost 6 years later.

Completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.

Travelling around the world on my own with a 3 year old.

What are your hopes and dreams for future success and happiness?

For my life to continue pretty much as it is at the moment and for my kids to grow and not be frightened to follow their dreams.

What's your best piece of advice for others wanting to feel more successful?

Don’t measure your success by someone else’s, success is specific to an individual. Don’t focus on what you haven’t done or feel you should have done, focus on all the things you have achieved no matter how small you think they are.
