lucieaboutHi! I’m Lucie and I’m passionate about small business growth and impact sourcing.

My specialty is using virtual teams & freelancers to increase productivity and allow entrepreneurs to focus on the important stuff so that they can grow their business, have a more fulfilling time working on the business and work less in it.

When I launched Click Convert Sell Ltd, a marketing agency, with my husband and business partner Aalok Y Shukla in 2013, we first hired a virtual assistant from the Philippines, Stela, a post-graduate with excellent English, who remained a key team member. Ever since our first hire, we have given the opportunity to many smart and talented people (including contractors and permanent staff members) from around the world and the UK to hold fundamental positions and use their skills remotely. There are so many benefits to owning a remotely managed business whether it is 100% based in the cloud or has a mixed virtual/physical workforce.
It quickly became apparent that there was an increasing demand for highly trained affordable virtual assistants (VAs), which is why we decided to help other business owners grow their business by hiring high-impact low-cost Filipino VAs.

My mission is to help small business owners who want to grow and liberate themselves by outsourcing to highly trained, experienced assistants with a multitude of talents.

I wrote the book The Outsourcing Game Plan to show  the roadmap business owners need to take to work more effectively with virtual teams.

“Easy read about an exciting topic. Entrepreneurial thinking shines through, makes perfect sense. Now I can’t wait to implement this concept in real life.”

Amazon Customer

“Absolutely essential if you’re interested in growing a virtual team and optimizing your business with that team. Building a remote team is tough work, and the best practices found here will make that job infinitely easier. I wish I’d found this years earlier. Thanks for a great resource.”

“A Really informative Book! A must read book, before you start the decision process.”

“The Outsourcing Game Plan is a book all entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses quickly should read. In this technological age, we have so many resources available to us and having a virtual team versus a physical one presents no end of benefits. Lucie provides a complete and succinct overview of how to maximise the benefits of having a virtual team in your business while addressing the pitfalls along the way.”

“So as I was just wondering how do I move from doing all this my self to getting a team that can grow my business with me this lovely little book landed in my inbox.
It is first of all a great read. Easy flowing, straight forward and to the point.
What was particularly helpful for me was that I have now learnt not just to charge in and hire a warm body – but to think this whole process through in more detail. Especially the section on how to define what you are actually looking for was helpful in this respect.
As an ol’ manager in the hospitality industry I also appreciated Lucie Marchelot Shukla’s advice on how to keep the team humming along. This was not new to me but I was delighted to see her emphasis on the importance of these universal principles of good management.
I can highly recommend this book if your are considering expanding your soloprenurial efforts and becoming and employer.”
