About In the Shed Secretarial

The seeds of In the Shed Secretarial were sown not in a shed but in a Glasgow bookshop.

After 17 years of working for other people and a string of temp jobs (some interesting, some not so much ... ) I was in need of some inspiration.

A lunchtime browse in a Sauchiehall Street bookshop (3rd floor, Business & Reference section) revealed a whole shelf of advice on freelancing and how to be your own boss.

And the rest, as they say, is History (2nd floor, apparently).

Not only did that lunchtime kick-start my freelance career, it was also the beginning of my addiction to business books. But that’s another story ...


Although I now specialise in working with accountants, solicitors and other legal professionals, my secretarial career has covered a wide range of businesses – from the construction industry to folk music magazines.
