Introducing a new Appy treasure
Here at Appy Books Central, the past few weeks have been a little wild. What with taking time out of the office for Xerocon in Sydney and
with the number of new client enquiries we have had in the past month, I think I am now beginning to understand the mayhem of every December
in the Claus household. It has been crazy, but good crazy!
It is always interesting to analyse a new client’s motivation in the timing of choosing to outsource their bookkeeping. Looking at the
spread of industries for Appy’s current influx of new clients, it would appear that things are getting very busy in the allied health space.
We have had many enquiries from speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and counselling services. I am not sure if this is because of
the extra compliance due to the NDIS or because of some other reason, but either way, we are happy to have them onboard. No matter the
industry, often small business owners call because they are worried, overworked, and overwhelmed. Finance is not their forte and they need
help. But you may be surprised to know is that bookkeeping is not just about numbers. A huge part of what we do every day is listen,
communicate, and provide comfort. To me it’s the best job in the world, because we get to make a difference.
Taking on all these lovely, new clients has meant that I have had the privilege of searching for a new little Appy elf to assist with the
workload. And what a little treasure we have found. Please meet Samara Dederer, our new Accounts Administrator. Sami will be managing the
data entry for our clients, preparing Excel spreadsheets and reports, managing social media posts, and learning the ins and outs of a busy
bookkeeping practice. She is already proving her weight in gold! Feel free to send her a welcome email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Check out Sami’s brief bio below.
“Hi, I’m Sami.
I’m in my second year of my Bachelor of Business and Accounting degree at Queensland University of Technology. I moved to Brisbane last year
from Rockhampton where I went to boarding school. I really hope to get into commercial management accounting when I graduate, however, if
that doesn’t pan out, I would love to own a little café by the ocean!
In my free time, I love exercising, going to the beach, reading, and cooking.
I cannot wait to start working with all you guys at Appy Books, and I hope to meet all of you soon.”
And that’s it for August. If you are an allied health specialist or are looking for a professional to take the stress out of your
financials, please give us a shout.
Welcome to Spring and stay ‘Appy!
