Why work with me?

Here’s what my clients have to say…

“I recently made the jump to freelancing full-time a few months ago, so I approached Julia just to make sure I was setting aside the right amount for tax and small things like that!

The whole process was very streamlined and friendly, and I left not only feeling confident with my finances but inspired to embrace those bigger business goals. If you are a creative freelancer just starting out, I would definitely recommend working with Julia just to make sure you're on the right track, then you're set for life! She has a lot of experience and knowledge to bring to the table, you will definitely leave feeling like a weight has been lifted!”

"My finances have always felt a bit haphazard, and working with Julia helped me figure out a way to consolidate my organisation and set achievable goals. I’m at a point in my life where I needed to take control of my personal and business finances, which I now feel confident in doing after talking to Julia.

It can be difficult to find relevant advice when you’re self employed or running a small business, so I’d highly recommend working with Julia to get a personalised approach full of actionable advice that really helps you figure out the messy world of finance."

“You're friendly, calm and approachable which is important to me. You have knowledge, experience and you're not afraid to talk about the emotional or (what might feel) embarrassing side of finances.

I really valued our time together. Thank you so much! For answering all my questions big and little, for listening when I talk about the things I was concerned or a bit embarrassed about. I'm looking forward to getting to work.“

”Julia delivers her wealth of knowledge and understanding in a way that is relatable, comforting and cuts through the fear! The peace of mind her session provided has encouraged me to plan and prepare for my business's future much more successfully than my somewhat shambolic attempts before, and for that I'm eternally grateful. Thoughtful, relatable and endlessly helpful!”

- Louise, wedding photographer

“I really appreciated the time and effort Julia spent getting to the heart of my concerns and problems. I liked how professional and yet informal our conversation was, and how easy and approachable she was to talk to. She has really boosted my confidence in knowing the value of my skills and how to price them. As well as offering lots of really helpful advice she asked lots of brilliant questions for me to go away and think about. She's been an absolute pleasure to work with!

I genuinely can't think of anything that could be improved, the whole service has been professional and yet incredibly warm and friendly from start to finish.”

- Tom, video producer and digital advertising consultant

"Magnificent - you made it very easy for me to get the things I was afraid of, didn't understand and just plain out didn't even think about. You explained stuff to me in a way that I could understand. Plus you totally reassured me when I thought of pretty much EVERY worst case scenario there is."

"Honestly, life changing. I feel empowered, happy and excited about making changes to make my business run smoothly and to be in control of my money. It was like talking to a friend and your advice was so valuable.

You went over and above what I was expecting to discuss and I feel like I've had a business mentor session, not just discussing the money side.

I can’t express my thanks enough, I feel I have so many things to go away and think about and put in to action that will give me back more time and ultimately more money and happiness."

"Thank you so much for yesterday! I went home feeling super motivated. I'm honestly so grateful for your advice. 

I found it so useful to speak to someone else in business who gets what I'm doing. I realised that I do have a valuable skill and I am good at what I do, therefore I should be charging what I'm worth. I was also really grateful for you answering the questions I had relating to my tax return. I can submit that now feeling confident that I have done everything right.

I've always been very worried about money and you helped to ease those concerns."

"Before I contacted Julia, I was a regular reader of her brilliant blog, and when I needed some personal advice, I knew who to turn to.

I needed some specific advice regarding my business and transitioning into being self-employed full time. Our coaching session was extremely helpful, as it clarified a few issues for me with the convenience of having a meeting at home! Julia explained everything clearly, meaning that even those who don't have much accounting knowledge would understand all of the information.

I would highly recommend Julia if you find yourself in need of some personal advice regarding accounting for your business!"

"Our coaching session has given me the encouragement to change a few things about my business that I was unsure about. It made me more confident about asking for money, and realising that my time is worth what I'm asking! 

The practical advice was really helpful. I've had a lot of friends give me their opinions on the subjects we discussed but it was reassuring to hear a professional point of view! The session lasted a perfect amount of time."
