Episode notes

In this episode of The Bookkeepers' Podcast, hosts Jo and Zoe had a conversation with Rebecca Bridges, who shared her unique journey in the bookkeeping industry. Rebecca started her career in the NHS and worked in corporate settings before venturing into bookkeeping. She established her own practice to find a better work-life balance and accommodate her children's needs while her husband worked. Clients often approach her when they encounter financial challenges or face issues related to unpaid taxes. Rebecca had ambitious goals and took the proactive step of registering for VAT early in her bookkeeping journey. By chance, she discovered The 6 Figure Bookkeeper group, which played a pivotal role in her decision to transition from a consultant role to establishing her bookkeeping practice. Currently in her third year of business, she successfully manages her workload alongside raising a teenager and an eleven-year-old. Rebecca expressed her wish to have found The 6 Figure Bookkeeper community earlier, as it would have been beneficial for her professional growth. The conversation delved into Rebecca's experiences during the pandemic and how she navigated the challenges it presented. They also explored the concept of fear of success and the importance of setting business goals, even in the face of uncertainty. Additionally, they discussed the significance of aligning household finances with business aspirations. Rebecca shared insights into her business structure, including her preference for having multiple projects and an ideal client profile. She touched upon her team composition and mentioned that she still maintains consulting clients alongside her bookkeeping practice. With her current workload at the desired capacity, Rebecca works approximately 20-25 hours per week, earning a sufficient income. She highlighted her newfound confidence in working with larger limited companies, attributing this growth to her association with The 6 Figure Bookkeeper community. Overall, the conversation with Rebecca Bridges provided an inspiring perspective for bookkeepers who are building their own businesses and seeking to understand the possibilities within the industry.
