I, like many other women, found my career was impacted by my choice to start a family. Upon returning after maternity leave, I found not only had my role and the office dynamics had changed but upon becoming a parent I had changed too.  


I realised I wanted more flexibility professionally and could benefit from my expertise by working for myself. I set off on a journey of self-employment, dipping my feet in the water by first working as a freelance bookkeeper. 


My favourite part of my role as an accountant is working with clients. I want to work with people and build strong working relationships and be invested in their businesses. It brings me joy to feel some responsibility for the success of their business. So, it made complete sense for me to start this business and work with my own clients.    


Through Little House, I am passionate in wanting to take my experiences and knowledge to help others facing similar challenges. Whether it be a new mum looking for a career change or a female entrepreneur looking to take control of their professional career.    


Not only does Little House Accountants aim to provide an accessible, down to earth, and trustworthy service, but also an appealing working environment for our employees. This will involve investment in a healthy work life ethos, ongoing career, and professional development opportunities, but also flexibility with regards to working around family and personal commitments.  


Starting my own accountancy practice was a huge endeavour and I found the BIPC at exactly the right time. The BIPC Build Your Business Programme was really useful, providing guidance on a huge range of areas relating to starting a business. I particularly enjoyed the marketing sessions and the support provided to help me understand my own business and the market I was entering. The workshops are a great way to network and meet like-minded new business owners on their own business journeys.  


To be able to provide our services, we are ever reliant on fast and efficient IT equipment. The grant will allow us to invest in essential equipment for the office. In the next year, we are looking to expand our services and hoping to work with more businesses. To support this growth and ensure we maintain customer service expectations, we are looking employ a further member of staff later in the year and the BIPC grant will provide us with the equipment to allow us to do this.
