For me, it’s not the ‘official’ side of my work that matters most: liaising with the tax office, ensuring individual and business compliance, serving on committees and panels to regulate, manage and improve the industry, although all of that is, of course, professionally rewarding.
What really matters to me is the difference I’m able to make in people’s lives. For some, that’s removing fear and uncertainty and worry. For others it’s removing hassle and stress and irritation and letting them get on with what they see as the ‘fun stuff’ in their businesses. Sometimes it’s about improving their numbers to create work-life balance, or boosting their family’s lifestyle or helping them realise business dreams. Whatever the positive outcome, I love being a part of it!
I have two teenage sons, one of whom is finishing film school this year. My partner and I are film buffs (though no soppy chick flicks for me!) I’m half way to a black belt in martial arts, and also enjoy photography and scrapbooking.
