About Sonja

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 always wanted to one day build my own business but wasn’t confident to leave behind a lucrative career. Motherhood allowed me to look at a corporate working life from a whole new perspective. I took a leap of faith, starting a business from home as a virtual assistant and I’ve never looked back!

My business grew 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 generally 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.
