So, what have you been up to in lockdown? It certainly makes you think about life, business and all the other parts of your life in a different way.

At BBX Devon we have been busy welcoming lots of new partners who have looked at and found our way of tapping into a new way of promoting their business, gaining new clients and to save their cash when they need to spend.

BBX – one of the worlds largest business communities can help both new and well established businesses and also helps saves your cash, our blogs are always highlighting our new partners so to start off with this one here are a few points as to what BBX can help you with so you can see some of the benefits that our partners see

  • Provides interest free credit
  • Helps you find new customers
  • Can help launch a new business
  • Increases the value of your business – helps grow your turnover
  • Improves your lifestyle (it’s not all business services on offer!)


One of the first worries that we have all been experiencing and probably our first thoughts when going into lockdown (besides wondering how long this will last) is our money and finances.  We have been fortunate to have Martin Allen of Smart Money Finance join our community recently who can help you with just that.  Working under the umbrella of True Potential LLP and award-winning wealth management company that has 20% of the UK’s Financial Advisors working with them.

Using their effective wealth platform technology, they like to keep things 

Simple – Effective – Unique

For an informal chat with Martin email him on martinallen@tpllp.com

Talking of money, have you been thinking about who you want to benefit when you die, it’s an awful subject for sure, but an inevitable one and we all want to leave it to our loved ones without any complications.

Maplebrook Wills can help you do just that.  In recent weeks we have welcomed Simon Hall who operates in the Exeter area and Jess Thompson who covers Plymouth.  With a personal touch and a fraction of the cost of the high street, they offer advise and help you choose the right products for you, tailored to your circumstances that may involve – unmarried partner – stepchildren – grandchildren. 

  • Power of Attorney 
  • Trusts
  • Funeral Plans
  • Wills

Why not get in touch with one of them to help guide you through what you need – email Simon on simon.hall@maplebrookwills.co.uk or Jess on jess.thompson@maplebrookwills.co.uk

Have you thought about organising your business tasks a bit better going forward? We all get so tied up with working in our business but often forget the working on it! We welcomed Jo from Pink Spaghetti PA Services recently.  Jo, based in Newton Abbot, but can work with virtually anyone virtually anywhere likes to put the 25th hour into your day.

Offering a ‘pick-up and put-down’ admin service likes to help you with the ‘nice to have pile’ that keeps sinking down your list and bring it to the top, dust it off and get it done.  What type of tasks can she do for you? Just take a look

  • Social media
  • Research
  • Organisation
  • Lifestyle management
  • Newsletters
  • Build a database

She offers a time management solution to your business and domestic challenges, happy to help on an ad hoc basis, or more frequently and offers a budget friendly retainer package.

Why not have a chat with Jo to see how she can help you out jo.eccersley@pink-spaghetti.co.uk

Having a chat with any of these guys costs nothing and could help solve a problem or two.

Don’t forget if you want a chat about how BBX can help you and your business we would love to hear from you – it’s good to talk.
