Why I love what I do


The key to loving the work that you do is finding passion and purpose in it. I qualified as a chartered accountant 17 years ago, and this together with my six years of articles and as a supervisor, I have a wealth of business experience to bring to any individual and company.

I love what I do because every day I meet a wonderful variety people to whom I can make a difference too. Whether it is the individual salaried employee taxpayer whom I can take the stress and concern of SARS compliance away; or to the small business owner who needs guidance and setup of budgets, processes, accounting systems and financial statements for financing; or to the larger business who needs structuring solutions for their employees or automation and efficiency of their accounting systems; I get to make a valued difference in each of these persons lives and take the stress away from compliance and the financial side of running their business, while helping them make better financial decisions
