When you’ve been in any industry as long as I have (over thirty years), and every day is spent unscrambling numbers in some way or form, you accumulate a lot of knowledge along the way.

You learn shortcuts to the best outcomes, uncover traps and pitfalls, and you also find “less-than-successful” methods that you probably wouldn’t attempt a second time.
Coupled with a deep industry knowledge and a voracious appetite for learning, very soon you’re sitting on a mountain of intellectual property that’s a goldmine for your clients.
A few years ago, I began mentally unpacking that knowledge. The result? I’ve published three books and become a regular contributor for several industry blogs and websites.

Start with my blog…

I publish a weekly blog here which covers not only cash Flow and finance issues but all things small business.

Then check out my contributor pages…

Over the years I’ve written for dozens of publications, and there are two that I have been contributing to regularly for the past year or two. They are Smallville and HerBusiness. These articles are bite-size chunks of information. Great for reading over coffee.

Smallville Official Contributor


This is the place for business owners who want to go beyond their “small business” title and think “big” in business. I’m surrounded by some of the best small business minds in Australia, and the quality of the information is superb. You’ll find topics on just about every area of small business from sales to marketing, operations to growth. And although I focus on unscrambling the numbers, you’ll find articles I’ve written on a wide range of business topics.

I’ve been lucky enough recently to be a part of The Better Business Book Volume 3

If you’re like me, you probably have 100+ business books on your shelf collecting dust. Some of them you’ve read, some of them you had hopes of reading, but life just got in the way.

Each of those books probably followed a theme and had one important underlying message to share with you. Hundreds of pages, thousands of words, but only one golden nugget of underlying wisdom.

All that reading for just one golden nugget.

Imagine if you could have one book that gave you 100 golden nuggets. Less dust. Less clutter. Just one book always by your side and to reference whenever you need to.

Well, that’s The Better Business Book. It’s your one-stop shop for crystal-clear business advice that you can use to grow your business and live the life you’ve always wanted.

The Better Business Book is better than your average business book. It consists of 100 people – including me! – each sharing their most valuable business lesson. A real story based on our business experience and the lesson they learned from it. Each time you read it, you will learn something new. Guaranteed.

I’m sure you’ve picked up by now that I’m a technology geek.
Anything that will improve efficiency, save time, or just generally make life easier, I’m all for it.

In 2013, I bundled up all this knowledge into a book called ‘Connected Technology’ about cloud accounting.

It’s my belief as a business owner that you need to understand the impact cloud accounting can have on your business; the time saving, the ease of use, and the information, available at a click, that will help you make informed business decisions.

If you don’t embrace change, your business may not survive in the future.

“Connected Technology – How to Transform Your Business with Cloud Accounting” is a must-read to understand how cloud accounting can revolutionise your business.

The third book I’ve written is for all my accountant friends out there.

The Connected Accounting Practice Book

Between 2011 and 2015, I transformed a traditional accounting practice into a modern, streamlined practice using technology to create efficiencies and increased productivity. I built a solid team with staff from widely different backgrounds, had a constant stream of new clients, and created the type of practice I had always wanted for myself.

It was such a success, I had accountants from far and wide asking me how I’d done it.

In the “Connected Accounting Practice”  I explain the three primary keys to unlocking my success, and how my fellow accountants can do it too.

I’m an accountant; this is just what I need. I’d like to purchase the book, please.
