I started my accounting practice from scratch 18 years ago at the age of 28.
I had worked at a top tier firm and a mid tier firm. I was career minded. I had my sights set on being perhaps one of the first female partners in that mid-tier firm. I did all the right things – I was one of the first in the office in the morning, one of the last to leave, took work home at night and on the weekends. I had no children at the time and my husband and I were cool with this.
At the time that I wanted to start a family, I had to make some choices. There was no maternity leave policy at the time, however, I was assured that an arrangement could be made. I thought to myself, mmmm, I could probably negotiate to work 3 days a week but knowing my work ethic and the expectations of the firm, they would be the ones that would win. I would probably get 5 days of work done in the 3 and the 2 days I had off probably would be open slather for phone calls and emails.
I made the call, I backed myself and set up practice at my home, 9 months before my son was born.
Why Work With Me?
My big why is to help accounting practice owners have better accounting practices and better lives.
Because when they do, they are far better advisors, they have better relationships with their staff and clients, they actually get to work in their zones of genius and they have better lives outside their practices.
