Money has been on my mind for as long as I can remember

At age 15, I was working two jobs and giving almost every cent I earned back to the family.

Growing up living day-to-day, week-to-week gave me a special appreciation for money.

And when I started to make my own way I felt a burning desire to be financially independent and free from the money worries that dogged my family during my childhood years.

I knew that achieving my dreams would require a good education, a solid understanding of finance and a whole lot of hard work.

Finance fundamentals starts with good old fashioned pencil and paper

In 1997, I began my education in bookkeeping and accounting. With pencil and paper. Financial accounting systems were in their infancy and access to good computers and decent internet speeds were hard to come by.

And my background working out the numbers by hand means I get what’s going on under the hood.

I understand the fundamentals of finance no matter the platform or technology being used to spit out the numbers.

Money management isn’t just about dollars in the bank — it’s about freedom

Over the next 20 plus years I grew my business and helped countless small businesses grow theirs.

And I began to see that good bookkeeping didn’t just result in clean, organised accounts and good compliance — but better cashflow, bigger profits and more freedom.

I developed an appreciation for money as more than dollars in the bank and made a sea change with my family moving the 1262 kms from Melbourne to Port Macquarie with a brief stint in Bathurst in between.

Success for us isn’t just about money but about the time, flexibility and enjoyment that money can bring.

I want every small business owner to experience success and freedom in their business

My mission is simple, I want to help small business owners harness the power of their finances so they can experience success and freedom.

I want to take away the burden and fear that comes with bookkeeping and give you back your time so you can enjoy your life.

We believe..

Working with a bookkeeper should be fear and judgement-free

Facing up to your finances can feel complex, overwhelming and scary. But with the right support, it doesn’t need to feel that way. At MagnifyUp, we’re not here to judge what’s in your books or make you feel stupid about what you don’t already know. We’re here to get your finances sorted and get you money-savvy so you can focus on growing your business.

Your finances shouldn’t be a mystery

Whether we do your books, you have an inhouse bookkeeper, or you decide to DIY — we want you to understand your money so you’re empowered to make good business decisions. We’ll show you what’s happening with your books and explain things using everyday language and examples that make sense to you. And we’ll never use industry jargon or words that bamboozle.

We only succeed when you succeed

We want to help you use your numbers to improve cashflow, increase profits, save time and enjoy your business (and your life!). And we partner with you to make sure whatever your business goals, your finances are set up to help you succeed. Because when you succeed, we succeed.

In taking the lead

We get to know your business inside and out, and then we get straight to work finding ways to help. We don’t wait to be told what needs to be done. We’ll let you know what we need from you and why we need it. And we’ll keep you accountable. You’re in business because you’re good at what you do. Let us be good at what we do — taking care of your bookkeeping and accounts.

In doing things the right way even if it’s the hard way

We don’t take the easy way out. We’re absolutely fanatical about keeping your books accurate, clean and up-to-date — and we’ll speak up if we find any issues. We’ll teach you how to understand your numbers. And, if we’re not the right bookkeepers for you, we’ll let you know and help you find someone who can meet your needs.
