Project / Seasonal Support

Fluctuations in workloads can put more demand on your time than your current staffing level can handle.

If you have a project or a busy season that requires additional support, ProTem will take on the extra workload and make sure that everything gets done on time, so you can focus on what matters most: delivering a high-quality product with minimal stress


Administration Consulting

You started your business because you’re good at what you do. But the number of solutions available to help you run your business can be overwhelming. 

I can help you find solutions that are:

  • tailored to the way you work
  • intuitive and consistent
  • best practices to stay organized and productive, and
  • best of all – can be delegated

If you’re looking to hire an assistant, but are unsure what you will delegate, defining processes and procedures can help identify those tasks, making it clear whether you need an assistant or not

Workflow Mapping

“Organized” is more than a word – it’s the way to run your business. It’s tempting to focus on urgent work and let processes and procedures fall by the wayside. But keeping things organized and efficient will help your business scale smoothly.

I can help map processes that are key to ensuring your business runs like a well-oiled machine.


As a self-employed business owner, I occasionally need assistance with administrative matters. I have struggled to find the right fit for a casual, part-time assistant, but with Karen’s help I have been able to streamline processes, be more organized, and ultimately eliminate the need for an assistant. From time management, to best practices for dealing with emails and repetitive tasks, and sound advice, Karen has made me feel like I am the master of my domain. I will use her services again in the future when I feel my process needs tweaking or need her advice as an admin expert. Thanks Karen!

Client Projects

Overwhelmed and Overworked?

“Jordan” is a successful CEO with growing a company. He’s always been proud of the company he built, but a flat organizational structure, his open door policy and over-flowing email inbox made it impossible to get his own work done.

ProTem worked with Jordan to set up more efficient process, which included filtering and delegating messages, liaising with recruiters, acting as CRM administrator, and overseeing his calendar. Now Jordan can concentrate on strategy and operations.

Desperate to Delegate?

You’re overseeing operations and taking care of your clients. How do you step away even for a few days without the wheels falling off the bus?

It happened to this business owner. While away doing necessary site visits, his office manager went on leave and the replacement decided at the last minute that the job was too much to handle. All of a sudden, there was no one to quote on projects, issue invoices, or even ensure things ran smoothly. As a result? The business almost faced bankruptcy.

ProTem helped the owner create a plan so when he was away from the office, the business would continue to run. The result? He was even able to get away on his honeymoon for a couple of well-deserved weeks of rest.
