THE FOUNDER

Meet Lara, the boss lady who loves all things pink. She is the founder of, and driving force behind the success of Get Stuff Done.

Lara has established a reputation with her clients for her prompt response and passion for service excellence. She leads a team of motivated fairies to whom she can delegate with confidence. Their loyalty to Get Stuff Done is purely professional and has nothing to do with Lara’s jar of spa vouchers and treats.

Lara is empathetic but robust which is useful as her home life could be titled, Three Men and a Little Lady, okay two young sons and a husband to be precise.

Lara’s boundless energy vibrates in the Get Stuff Done office.

Based in Cape Town’s trendy Woodstock, she started Get Stuff Done after she was retrenched. Armed with a Macbook and business smarts, she saw the proverbial glass, or in her case mug of coffee, half full and decided to become her own best boss.

She’s disciplined, resourceful and knows her stuff..
