I have been part of a small business or in small business since I was 12! I started transitioning to the digital economy in 1997 when I first started a business! When I started The Tax Man Limited which is still operating today with 800 clients. Back in the old days AOL and ICQ were all the fade… I marveled at the online ability to reach out and touch the world! Then I got into my business… emphasis on I got into my business. Word of mouth brought me all the work I knew what I was doing di a great job at a fair price! The digital disruption started! As an accountant, I started to see the costs increase and for the sake of comparison my turnover increased by 40% in the last 5 years yet profit remains the same!
I decided to something about it by looking at my skills and determining what I could do about it! At the same time as this, I was working with non-profits in the form of Toastmasters as a member. I worked on a project spanning 3 years with Kerri and once that had finished we identified that we worked well together and decided to work in business together! We commenced Anywhere Business Network. I am all about empowering people to make the most of themselves with the mindset, collaboration, and learning!
