When my childhood dream of becoming a footballer was cruelly taken away from me due to lack of ability, I decided to go down the accountancy route instead.
A few years after qualifying, I went travelling round Europe, and had the time of my life. Unfortunately, I had to return to real life. I moved 200 miles and six months later in 1996 started my own accountancy practice in Glasgow.
For many years I was a typical accountant, providing a good service, but there was something missing. I wanted to make a difference to my clients, which has morphed into my vision of all clients really understanding their business numbers and financial accounts.
After nearly 18 years of self-employed I wrote my first book, "Your 60 minute business transformation" a 5* Amazon reviewed book. It wasn’t long after this that Susanne and I created ‘We are Business Transformers’ to help small businesses not make the mistakes we made in the early days.
On a personal note, Susanne and I have a delightful daughter who helps keep us young!
I love watching football, getting out to the hills or by the sea, catching up with friends and family, going away for the weekends in our VW Camper Van and going on holidays.
