My Story

When I was progressing through my accounting career, I thought I would never escape the 9-5 and the cubicle. I was in a career crisis and in search of a breakthrough.

I spent nearly a decade in my accounting career trying to figure out how to gain more freedom and find work that excites me.

If you're an accountant and desire to achieve a better lifestyle, then you've come to the right place.


Maybe you're dissatisfied with your current job, struggling to make ends meet or don't know the next step to take... So you don't do anything and wait for something good to happen to you "someday".

But "someday" never comes.

And soon you'll find that years have gone by and you feel exactly the same if not worse.

See, I felt this way for a long time. But recently I’ve totally changed my outlook on work and life. Through a process of stepping outside my comfort zone, reinventing myself and creating my own opportunities, I've been able to achieve the lifestyle I had dreamed about.

But just because I have achieved my ideal lifestyle does not mean I'm going to stop there. I'm on a mission to help you with your career and life, saving you an incredible amount of time and energy by giving you the blueprint to how I did it.

I share all the tools and resources that I’ve personally used get financially fit, escape the 9-5 and achieve my ideal lifestyle.
