    Hi folks,

    I’ve been a bad girl and not looking at this site for a while even though it’s a GREAT resource for any and everyone.

    First of all, I’m Melissa and have recently set up Melissa’s Bookkeeping Services after gaining the necessary qualifications and registrations to become a practising BAS Agent.

    My goal is to be your online bookkeeping specialist and operate full time from my home office (this is a long term goal mind you as I currently work full time in an Accounting Firm preparing business financials and tax returns).

    My friends and I are in the midst of setting up the new website and developing other marketing material, but the best way to market is just get out there and do it because nothing will happen if I sit back and wait….it might, but I don’t want to take that chance. ;)

    Now, just because I plan on being an online bookkeeper, doesn’t mean I don’t deal with your paperwork and you can’t call or meet me. In fact, depending on the needs of your business, I can deal with all the paperwork either by post, fax, email or pick up and drop off and it doesn’t matter what state you’re in (except perhaps with the pick up and drop off aspect).

    Anything is possible and if I’m not able to do a specific thing that you need, I just might know someone who can or do the research so that I can do it.

    Unfortunately, as I do currently work Monday to Friday, all work is completed after hours. But don’t let that stop you from getting a great service as with these online account keeping SaaS (Software as a Service) I use, you can potentially have your bank transactions feeding daily in to the system so once set up and on the go, might only take a couple of hours per week.

    I do also use desktop MYOB (as it’s been a core feature in my work for 10 years) but am not comfortable with Quickbooks.

    I could go on for ages, but I won’t. If you’re interested in what I could do for you or vice versa, please contact me. I’m all ears.

    Regards,

    Melissa

    NB I am based about 30 minutes south of Perth, WA.

    Hi Melissa!

    Congrats on setting up your new business! You’re definitely approaching it the smart way, by growing your business while you are still working for a boss.

    It’s absolutely true that to get new clients, you really just have to bite the bullet and get out there. Establish yourself as an expert in your field, and get out as much as you can to help others who could end up being your customers.

    Networking on sites like this is invaluable as well – you never know, you may just be talking to your next client or JV partner!

    I look forward to connecting with you here!

    Cheers and happy weekend!

    Hi Melissa,

    Been a bad girl huh? :) All the best in your journey, and yeah I know where Kwinana is, I used to live in Perth.

    I can never get the patience to do any accounting work, as I hate accounting stuff lol.

    Hear from you soon.
