More about me, Kate!
I’m Kate, and I’ve started balanced bookkeeping as I want to use the skills I’ve learnt over the years to help new and existing businesses THRIVE! I knew I wanted to be an accountant when I was working in hospitality as a teenager, I loved cashing up and thinking about margins and profit. When I took the plunge and started my first accounting job, I was so nervous and this world of accounts is so alien. My first few months of training consisted of a lot of: What the hell is a debtor? What is a journal? Why are journals used? Why are accruals a thing? Oh no, why is this not balancing? How do I write a cheque? What have I done? Debit or credit? Ah damn it that was supposed to be a debit not a credit. Luckily I had the most amazing first boss who took me under her wing and taught me everything I needed to know. Now fast forward a fair few years I’m a qualified bookkeeper, wife, mummy of two and dog mum of one. I also work part time as an AAT trainer which I absolutely love. So what does balanced bookkeeping offer?
