The why: As a mum and step-mum to a tribe of 5, I fully understand the juggle of work and home life. Pink Pig Financials was born out of a dream that I could spend equal time doing what I love and being with the people I love. Starting a business was both the scariest thing I’ve ever done, but also the thing I’m most proud of (along with my Children, of course!). It’s why I’m driven to help other parents realise that they can find flexibility and do both!
The who, what, where and, when: I’ve helped all kinds of amazing businesses since I began working in accounts in 2003. My journey started with becoming AAT qualified shortly after my first son was born, and led me to completing a Payroll Management Diploma shortly after. Clearly unable to sit still, I then went on to tackle my ACCA qualification and became a Certified Chartered Accountant, self-taught from home around the kids and my job. I’ve always had something to work towards, my next achievement in business, a new piece of technology to master, a bucket list of global destinations to visit. I believe all business owners can work towards their ideal lifestyle from day 1 of starting out.
The braggy bit: ACCA qualified, Xero Advisor Certified, Xero Payroll Certified, Xero Migration Certified, Xero’s Most Valued Professional 2018.
