The Ease Team
Marjolyn didn’t enter accounting in the conventional way and up until she graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree with an Accounting Major in 2001 (with a CPA qualification following not long after) she had acquired a broad range of experience in secretarial services over a 15-year period working with architectural, civil engineering and medical practitioners. An holistic thinker, she believes there is a strong correlation between business performance and the business owner’s mindset. “I enjoy working alongside our business owners to ensure that they are not only fulfilling their vision behind their business but also aligning their beliefs to match their desired outcome. Too often I have seen these two elements mismatched to the point where the business’s performance fails to reflect the time and effort invested.” Marjolyn is an avid fan of the latest cloud-based technology employed in accounting as well as the positive results that can be achieved from using social media to build and promote your business. “Employing the power of the internet and the reach and influence of social media is sure to give your business an edge over organisations that persist in operating using outdated processes and systems.” Mentoring and empowering business owners to truly understand their business and achieve the outcome they want is part of the passion that drives her to do what she does.
Having qualified as a Chartered Accountant at a very young age, tax and ‘numbers’ are where Sian sees her main strengths. But being able to help people achieve more from their business is what sets her apart from other accountants. Gaining valuable technical knowledge from 4 years spent within a large mid-tier firm in Perth CBD, she feels fortunate to be able to take this expertise and channel it into her EASE Business Services partnership. As a certified Xero Partner and with extensive experience in FBT Sian possesses all of the ‘tools’ to help 21st-century businesses maximise their return on effort. “I’m excited and privileged to be able to share the knowledge I have gained of modern accounting practices. It is my personal mission to ensure EASE is always the first to implement new and exciting ways of provide professional business service and advice.” When she isn’t providing accounting services Sian enjoys mentoring small business owners on different ways to improve their profitability and business efficiencies.
