Starting up a business? Is it hard? Yes. Is it fulfilling? Yes! Live your dream
started our original accountancy practice business, Sanders Geeson back in
had no job; I had just left my last job as an employee. I didn’t want to work
for anyone else. I wanted control in my working life and not leave my life at
the whim of another person.
wasn’t a “spring chicken” but I wanted to be my own boss and build something
for me, my family and for others.
sat down with a blank piece of paper and thought, what do I want to do?
I thought I want to help others…..I want make a difference. I want to help
smaller business…share my experience as a Finance Director for the previous
over 15 years in larger businesses.
I want to help other businesses be a success, but it didn’t need to be simply
financial - life is richer than that.
is not just financial, so we’ll help other business people to build the
business they want, not necessarily to be rich but to be fulfilled.
brought and brings a smile to my face!
what do these business owners want from us?
for a start they want us to be a safe pair of hands, making sure things are
done right and on time.
can also help them save time by taking time consuming uninteresting things away
from them like the bookkeeping and payroll.
course they’ll want us to save tax; that will be fun I thought.
the most important way we could help with is to help business owners get
focussed on what matters most to them whatever that is (I call this strategic
we could help them to get there. Of course financial figures tell a story about
your past, so we can help with regular up to date management accounts but we’ll
add non-financial forward looking KPI’s (key performance indicators) so they
will be more useful.
we’ll help business owners paint their future using business plans and
financial forecasts (profit and cash flow) and keep a tab on things ongoing
through regular management accounts and board meetings.
my blank piece of paper was really full, I had designed the job I always wanted
and 7 years on I’m living my dream job……
it hard work and is it frustrating from time to time? Yes! Is it fulfilling?
Again, Yes! And yes it’s still hard work as I continue on my adventure…
