Jaye overcame a motorcycle accident to set up her bookkeeping practice

A long-time lover of accounts and numbers, Jaye Snell AICB PM.Dip has always liked the thought of helping people’s businesses. After completing work experience with her aunt who is an accounting technician, Jaye had the opportunity to obtain qualifications with AAT. However, she had a motorbike accident and her career progress was delayed.

After gaining her AAT qualifications several years later, Jaye started distance learning with ICB as she found that ICB's bookkeeping qualifications are more practical. Jaye likes that she can do her exams in her own time and feels prepared to use her skills in the profession.

Jaye set up her business in April 2018 and enjoys giving guidance on the systems her clients’ businesses have in place. She also enjoys making data accessible, understandable and in layman’s terms for small business owners.

Having wanted to work in the profession for so long, Jaye is the happiest she has been and feels like she has found her calling. The appreciation her clients have for her and the work she does is extremely fulfilling.

Jaye says,

“If you have a dream or desire to do something, it’s easy to keep putting it off. You never know what’s around the corner; make yourself proud, make the jump and start doing something you love!”
