Holidays Are Here – Hooray!!

Ray Stewart Bookkeeping, Business, General Leave a Comment

Yes it’s true – it is that time of year again. The family are dragging me kicking and screaming down to the south coast and beyond for the Stewart family annual holiday.

The dog and cat are safely in the kennels, the fish are nice and clean with a food block about to be launched in the morning when we leave – and a post I was writing shall remain here – half finished until the week after next. The post is a really interesting one about who, if anyone, still keeps bookkeeping records manually in the 21st Century – you may think none – but you will probably be surprised when I relate my recent experiences.

Anyway, I am getting a very dirty look from my other half – so have a fantastic week and I will finish the manual records post on the 21st July – all being well!!

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
