A mother and a marketer, Augusta Moses owns her own bookkeeping practice and is also self-employed
After taking over a rapidly growing manufacturing business with her husband, Augusta decided to gain a better understanding of the accounts after the business grew rapidly. She originally enrolled with AAT but later joined ICB to complete her bookkeeping qualifications.
A mother of four children, Augusta started August Financials because of the flexibility that self-employment provides. However, through being employed, she has developed her marketing skills which have helped her to grow her working network.
Augusta chose to use the University of Wolverhampton’s incubation hub to grow her practice and whilst there, the hub manager ending up hiring her to market and promote the business hub itself. She now uses her copywriting and digital marketing skills to promote start-ups and other small businesses, like her practice August Financials.
Augusta believes that the bookkeeping profession is on the rise and will attract a breadth of individuals with a variety of skills and experience in business management. With all the new regulations coming into play, she predicts that we will see more use of innovative technology to enhance the bookkeeper and client relationship. She is also planning to complete her Payroll qualification later this year.
The advice Augusta gives to future women entrepreneurs is,
‘Go and do it and take the leap. I wouldn’t have the insight, network or experience I have now without stepping out on my own’.
