With a dedicated and skilled team and an already vast array of services, it’s no wonder the Right Solution Centre has become so successful! In the midst of an exciting year of expansion for the firm, Managing Director Jurgita Petiul found the time to sit down with us and chat about being a woman at the helm in business.
How do you start your day?
I’m a mum of two lovely kids; 15 and a eight-years-old. So, my mornings are very busy to get them ready for school. Then I come to the office. I must have a cup of coffee and chat with our team for a few minutes.
How do you end your day?
I try to spend some time with kids and they love when I read a book to them!
How did you come up with the name for your company?
This is funny as it was my husband’s idea. When I was starting business, the idea was that it would be business centre and because we provide solutions for our clients, we came up with the idea – Right Solution Centre!
What was your mission at the outset?
To build a big, well known business centre with happy clients and employees.
How many employees do you have?
There are seven of us at the moment.
How do you advertise your business?
Our best advertising is our happy clients. Because we provide services, most of people want to know who we are before coming to us. For us, it’s not enough just to put out the ad. Most of the time it doesn’t not work. Of course, we have all social media. We post and share news, ideas, quotes and etc, but mostly just to inform clients.
To what do you attribute your success?
There are a lot of factors but first of all, I love what I’m doing. I love to see people coming with the idea to start their business, to help them to find solutions. But also, I wouldn’t be able to do that without our amazing staff and my husband’s support. I think our team is the best! We work hard and honestly. We give our clients the best service we can. That makes them to recommend us and bring more clients.
What are the most important services a business needs to utilise as a start up?
I think to plan your time and control your budget. Time management is very important as a lot of start ups forget about it and waste a lot of valuable time instead of concentrating on the most important things.
How do you best network?
Relaxing and being myself.
How do you manage stress?
This is a hard question. Stress comes from problems. I believe that every problem has a solution. Instead of panicking and stressing, I try to solve it.
What ignited your spark?
My family, my kids. I wanted to be my own boss for as long as I can remember myself and I had a lot of ideas from childhood. I was planning, organising, creating something all the time. I’m a workaholic but I wanted to be able to spend more time with my kids. That’s why to start my own business was the best solution for me.
Tell me about your best and worst days at work?
I’m very organised and a perfectionist. My best days are when everyone is happy in the office, everything runs smoothly. The worst days are when clients are late or don’t show up, as that breaks all my plans.
What do you do when you’re not at work?
I try to spend as much time with my family as I can. I love to play board games with kids or just watch a movie on the weekend. I love to travel, either in Ireland or abroad. I love cooking and reading books.
Try to describe yourself in three words only?
Strict, persuasive, optimistic.
How do you generate innovative ideas?
All our ideas and opportunities are around us, we just don’t always see them. I travel and read a lot. That inspires me and helps me to be open minded.
If you could talk to one person from history, who would it be and why?
There are too many people I would like to talk to, but if I had to choose one, it would be Napoleon Hill or Dale Carnegie. They inspire and motivate me.
