Over the last 10 years, I've been helping many small business owners & entrepreneurs achieve clarity, calm and confidence when it comes to their finances.
Sure, this About Page shares a little bit about me, but it's really about YOU.
It's about how you can leverage the knowledge and experience I've gained over the years to finally break through your challenges and achieve the results that you've been looking for.
In my previous role as the Group Financial Controller for a Global Recruitment company, I felt like an integral part of the management team, confident in my position's stability. However, life had a surprise in store for me when I was unexpectedly made redundant. The experience left me feeling a mix of emotions - anger, resentment, and a sense of disbelief.
In that pivotal moment, I made a firm decision - I would never allow circumstances (or a boss) to dictate my fate again.
Determined to take control of my destiny, I chose to venture into entrepreneurship. So in 2013, drawing upon my extensive financial expertise, I took the leap and started a bookkeeping business. My primary objective was to provide valuable support to entrepreneurs, helping them overcome the challenges associated with managing their business finances.
As my business grew and I worked with more clients, I realised that simply helping them with bookkeeping wasn't enough. Many clients faced broader challenges and aspirations beyond finances. Achieving financial harmony required addressing more than just balancing the books.
Entrepreneurs, especially women, sought support in navigating the ups and downs of running a business, dealing with insecurities, and finding their authentic voice in the online world.
To make a difference, I decided to adopt a more holistic approach.
In addition to bookkeeping, I knew I had to offer guidance, coaching, and practical solutions to help my clients thrive on their entrepreneurial journey. My mission now extends beyond financial management; it's about empowering clients to take charge of their entire business, align it with their values, and cultivate a healthy relationship with money.
As a Financial Strategist & Virtual CFO, my journey to expertise has been all about learning and growing. I've spent countless hours studying money mindset and digging into people's unique relationships with money. Understanding how emotions influence our financial decisions has been eye-opening.
I've gathered valuable insights from mentors, continuous education, and lots of research. Now, my clients don't have to tread this complex path alone. I'm here to guide them, armed with knowledge and understanding, empowering them to make informed decisions and transform their relationship with money.
When mindset management is coupled with proper financial management, this is where entrepreneurs thrive and their businesses starts to flourish. They can then take these same principles into their personal finances to grow their net worth.
Once I saw how much more I could help business owners, I knew I didn't want to stick to standard bookkeeping and giving clients a report once a month. I wanted to put my years of financial experience to good use and make a difference in people's lives.
Sure, knowing your numbers and having accurate bookkeeping is obviously very important (don't worry, we'll handle that for you), but what matters, even more, is knowing how to use those numbers to grow your business.
We won't just crunch the numbers and leave you hanging. We'll give you the clarity and guidance you need to maximise your profits and help you build a business you love. My goal is to empower you with the knowledge you need and support you to thrive in this competitive world and create a business that truly stands out.
Today, I have the honour of working with the most amazing business owners and world changers.
And I want the same for you...
