Our Team

Brenda Ryan – Founder/Director

Registered BAS Agent, Accountant and Business Mentor assisting start-up and small business get up and running and financially fit.
As a degree qualified accountant, having worked in public accounting firms since 2002, she is certainly qualified, however Brenda definitely doesn’t fit the mould of the typical accountant.

She has experienced being in and out of her own businesses, eventually finding a niche to combine her loud and excitable personality with her accounting skills, expertise and know-how.

Brenda is passionate about helping small business owners to take control of their destiny, creating success and a legacy, so they can live the life they truely desire, without the hassles and worries about their finances.

The first step is always showing the business owner where they are currently, lifting the lid on the figures, so the right decisions can be made. Brenda knows many SME’s approach this with the fear of being scolded by their bookkeeper or accountant.

That’s why she promotes her services positively, and if anything, a little bit crazy and fun. Because she knows life in business can be a little crazy at times, and having a service provider who knows exactly what you are going through, being patient and kind, as well as qualified and professional, can make all the difference.
