Ten years ago, creating a personal web page was a way for
people to bond with their cats.
But in 2013 our lives are completely online, so I figure it's a
good idea to push some of the better stuff to the top.
At Invoice2go my role is taking care of business. Whichever way you measure it, Invoice2go is the #1 invoicing app in the World and that has come about because the developers here are world class.
When I'm not doing coffee runs for the rock star developers, I'm establishing and maintaining relationships with our partners... and occasionally I might help out with some business.
After spending a few years working as an accountant without much joy, I decided to hang out my shingle. I setup a small office in Crows Nest, and waited for the phone to ring.
After partially selling, Mother Hen is now run by my Business Partner Adrian Dorca and supported by the super talented Sammy Datta. I consult on business development for Mother Hen and for our business clientele.
When I wasn't trying to hit on the receptionist, I was responsible for overhauling the company's corporate compliance in preparation for a buyout from Count Plus. I was successful in both roles, and I met some really cool people here.
I loved working for Ken Crossman, he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. I worked here four days a week when I was finishing off my degree, and was responsible for preparing the financial reports and tax filings for the larger corporate entities.
This is the first accounting job I ever had, and I was very fortunate to learn from Howard Pelquest-Hunt. It took me eighteen months to find a question that he didn't know the answer to. Five years later, we reconnected as partners in Mother Hen.
I earned my Degree through UNSW as part of ATAX. I studied Accounting and International Taxation, and before I started working as an accountant I had a lot of fun as a hungry student with lots of free time.
Invoice2go is in the Top 10 business apps worldwide, which makes business development pretty easy. We've got some cool stuff coming this year, watch this space...
With my amazingly talented business partner (Adrian Dorca) and an upcoming accounting superstar (Sammy Datta) we take care of business...
