By Anita Jaynes on 26 February, 2015

We’re all familiar with the BBC television show, The Fixer, with Alex Polizzi. Now Swindon has its very own ‘business fixer’ and she’s on a mission to help struggling businesses.

My Business Buddy has been set up by entrepreneur, Hadi Brooks, who is also the owner of the much loved local brand that is Rays Ice Cream, with its main location on Devizes Road in Swindon’s Old Town.

Running your own business can be hard work, suddenly you need to become an expert in many fields, including: customer services, accounting, book keeping, marketing, people management and so much more.

My Business Buddy is aimed at small business owners who are struggling with one particular aspect of the business, or who simply need to make more money.

It will also help to guide people through the process of starting their venture and are there to help answer some of the many inevitably tricky questions that come with launching a new business.

With a Master’s degree in management, My Business Buddy’s owner, Hadi has worked in operations management and marketing within large organisations and has most recently ran two successful businesses.

“Starting you own businesses and getting it up running successfully can be very rewarding, it can also be very daunting,” said the successful business owner.

“It is hard work, you may not have experience in some of the specific areas you need, you probably have outside commitments and you are undoubtedly tired.

“With my business background I am really well placed to help owners get through these challenges, not least because I have done it myself – twice, before starting My Business Buddy.

“I love working with people; I love analysing a business’s performance and looking for improvement opportunities, best of all for my clients, my rates are really reasonable and an initial chat is free.”
