Finishing the week on a high.⠀ ⠀ Love it when we speak to new clients and they haven’t been able to get results from their former bookkeepers or accountants.⠀ ⠀ Reconciling the bank feed is not just ticking off transactions.⠀ ⠀ Whilst on the phone with a new client we fixed their bank feed which nobody was able to do for two years.⠀ 20 minutes and problem solved. Just goes to show everyone’s “knowledge” of accounting software is drastically different.⠀ ⠀ Please to say we passed with flying colours.
Road trips today as I head to Melbourne.⠀ ⠀ Lunch with the fabulous @shewillshinebiz for a bit of a brain dump. ⠀ Followed by a virtual @xero session with a client in QLD.⠀ ⠀ Followed by a 🏊♀️ ⠀ ⠀ Most likely followed by falling asleep on the couch at 8pm.
It’s been far too long between ice cream sundaes with my better half. The one who supports all my crazy ideas and tells me he loves me even though some of those ideas are genuinely bloody crazy.
The #mariekondo phenomenon is bloody taking over social media. I thought why not apply the same principles to your business finances (link in bio if you want to read the blog 👆🏻) Commit to understanding. Get rid of the people which are not sparking joy or helping you understand your finances. Be prepared to let go of things which are not helping your business move forward. Tackle one area at a time - start small and keep going. Work out the areas of your business which need your time and energy.
After a three hour onsite @myobteam training session today as I was leaving the new client comes out with...⠀ ⠀ Stacey, I really just want to hug you right now. I am feeling so in control.⠀ ⠀ Seriously - totally up for hugs. I am a hugger. Also a crier so beware as the two generally go hand in hand 🤣
Have been on the go since 7am 🥗 3 hour @myobteam training and now I am HANGRY 🥗 Nobody get in my way for the next 30 minutes!!
OK - time for some honesty.⠀ ⠀ Do you really understand your numbers?⠀ ⠀ Like do you know if your BAS is correct?⠀ ⠀ Are you paying wages and super right?⠀ ⠀ Have you identified your income streams and income opportunities?⠀ ⠀ What does your budget look like?⠀ ⠀ 2019 has well and truly started and this is officially your kick up the bum to sort all those things out.⠀ ⠀ Yep - we are officially “finance-bum-kickers”
🚘 is in for a service which means I am “co working” at the local plaza today 🤣⠀ ⠀ No point wasting four hours just hanging around the car dealership.⠀ ⠀ ATO training webinars, BAS, and client calls are all on the agenda.⠀ ⠀ Plus I might try “researching” a holiday as I already have serious holiday envy of everyone who is currently in exotic locations whilst I sit at the local plaza in my activewear.
Yep, my life is truly exciting!!
To the prick who skimmed my credit card - a big FU. 🖕🏻 Thankfully @anz_au Falcon team realised there was weird transactions before you took too much of my hard earned money. 🖕🏻 But seriously - what a pain in my arse to have to cancel the card and reorganise all the direct debits.
Saturday carb loading before a lap session 🏊♀️ at the pool.

After years in the corporate world and being dictated as to what I could (and mainly could not) wear, boy it is nice to be able to wear what is comfortable.⠀ ⠀ Shoes do not maketh the woman.
Surviving school holidays by making rainbow cupcakes 🧁 and hiding in my office to get shit done. Amazing the amount of work you can compete on a multi-colour-food-die-sugar-high.
As a business owner this is especially true.⠀ ⠀ You need to have courage to say yes but also at times the courage to say no.
Taurus⠀ Stubborn and determined⠀ Some might say they are negative traits⠀ I see them as essential when being a business owner!⠀
Starting my day with a Kombucha and bank reconciliations. Then off to a lunch meeting with @i.balter_design - can’t wait to hear her exciting plans for 2019. Then going to try and sneak in a swim on the way home. Day sorted!
