I’m an accountant …
Well, I like to say I’m a recovering accountant, or an accountant with a personality (I know, it’s hard to believe!). This might be why I’m not an accountant anymore.
What I have found, though, is that being an accountant has helped me have a much deeper understanding of business.
It took me around six years of study and work to become a qualified accountant, and during that time I learned the fundamentals of business.
Numbers are the language of business; they show you what’s working and what’s not. Through my study and experience, I’ve learned how to speak the language of business fluently. Don’t tell anyone, but I love numbers!
I love to:
- review the numbers in a business,
- help clients understand what the numbers are saying,
- and help them make better decisions to improve results based on their numbers.
A lot of clients tell me that what they like about my style of coaching is that it starts and ends with the numbers. It isn’t just about making them feel good, but about implementing the steps to get results.
It doesn’t stop there. My study ignited a passion to learn about business and I became a student of business success. I’ve devoured over 330 business and personal development books and courses, and 20 years on I’m still reading and learning.
As I write this, I’m excited as I’ve just received a new marketing book that’s hot off the press (I know, I’m pretty sad). I love learning new things and sharing it with my clients!
I’ve also studied under leading entrepreneurs, coaches, and consultants over the years, including:
- Tony Robbins
- Paul Dunn
- Chris Mason
- Brad Sugars
- Chris Howard
- Mike Koenigs
- Brendon Burchard
- Ryan Deiss
- Russell Brunson
- Taki Moore
- … and many more.
I like to learn about every aspect of business from financials to marketing, sales, systems, leadership, management, and the human mind. I love to use that knowledge to help my clients.
