What does your business do?
My business is wine, I import and wholesale a great selection of French wine and look to provide a personal, bespoke and efficient service for businesses.
What is a typical working day for you/what does it look like?
A typical business day? I don’t think I have one! I supply businesses all over Scotland and my work can vary dramatically, one minute I could be processing new orders from businesses and dealing with my suppliers in France, the next I could be travelling across the country to meet with a potential new client or following up on a new lead, it doesn’t leave me a lot of time.
What do you use Len Lothian for?
Len Lothian is fantastic – I basically use them as my outsourced warehouse! I get all of my wine deliveries sent there and they will take receipt of the delivery, check for any damages and then store it for me. They also help me prepare and send out wine orders for me to clients and so it saves me a lot of time and allows me to be out seeing customers as much as possible. It is a really efficient service and it’s something I couldn’t do alone.
What’s your top tip in Business?
My top tip in business would have to be to plan your time well, if you don’t then things can really get on top of you, having a company I can rely on like Len Lothian really helps me in this respect because I can trust them to handle the warehousing side efficiently which leaves me to focus on my customers.
