You can get more organised in your business operations, improve those workflows and cash flow, and get your weekends back.

You just need a little expert help and support to get it all sussed out.

Who's behind 5 Star Admin?

The more we know about you and your values, the more we can help you streamline your admin and scale your business.

But of course you want to put a face to the name – so allow me to introduce the 5 Star Family.

I’m Tara McGowan, the Director of 5 Star Admin.
