About Blossoming Business

Hi, I’m Sonja Balzarolo
Bookkeeper, Business Foundation Specialist and Owner of Blossoming Business.
Until 2014 when I left my career to have my first daughter, I had been working in the corporate field for over 20 years.
Across my 20+ years I worked in management, operations, finance, leadership, training and HR, and successfully grew, diversified and turned around many unprofitable businesses. I attribute my success to building strong foundations that once implemented give businesses a solid base from which to grow.
I’ve always wanted to build my own business but for many years didn’t have the confidence to leave my very well-paid career. Motherhood allowed me to look at a corporate working life from a whole new perspective. In 2016 I took a leap of faith and started a business from home providing business support services. I’ve never looked back.
My business has grown and transformed into the bookkeeping and business consultancy I run today with my husband John, a Registered BAS Agent. Through my business journey, one thing has always remained constant. My love for helping business owners grow their business. It is and always has been the driving force behind everything I do.
I also discovered (the hard way!) as I grew my business how important it is as a business owner to take care of yourself as well as you do your business and family. Looking after my ‘Self’ is now an integral part of my business strategy and I love that my work helps other business owners make time for this too.
My life on the daily usually consists of time working on my business, time with my girls doing something creative, time for me and always a coffee (or 2) with a good book. We live on the Gold Coast – aka paradise! – in Australia with our 2 daughters, Lily-Rose and LuLu Sparkle.
How I can help couples in business…
My heart aches for couples struggling to juggle business and life and feeling stressed every day.
I’ve seen firsthand how hard it is to be a couple in business, as well as experiencing it myself. The freedom, results and satisfaction that can come from getting it right are worth the effort to make the changes required. I love helping business owners and find it extremely rewarding to see people find success in their business. When that success also helps their relationship, family and satisfaction in life, as it does with couples, I am beyond grateful for getting to be part of their journey. It is the most satisfying part of my job.
This is why I have written my debut book, Mr & Mrs Business. The topics I discuss in the book are strategies any couple can pick up, run with and make some changes. My wish is anyone who reads this book will find some relief to their money and time stresses and find some time to build self-care into their week.
