My business journey started as a knee jerk reaction to a personal tragedy. I soon learned that it wasn’t good enough to be technically adept, I had to be a great business person too. My business has evolved significantly over the past 15+ years from working from home, to commercial premises, to a purpose built home office; franchising with up to 14 franchisees across Australia at one point; hiring staff and subcontractors; writing a book; and having a couple of babies along the way. There have been some tragedies, and some triumphs, and my business has been the constant throughout it all. Technology has made the world a much smaller place which means I can service all of my clients from my own office. I pride myself on my dedication and time management skills, which allows me to give the time and energy needed for both family and clients. Running a small business is like taking a road trip – with many twists and turns along the way. I love working with passionate small business owners and helping them make their own business journey as enjoyable as possible. When I’m not bookkeeping, you’ll find me at gym, on an obstacle course, or camping with family and friends.
