Accounting with the Freedom of Expression
When was the last time you were able to sit at your desk, relax, realise the amount of work you need to do but still smile and be at ease?
There are many fantastic reasons to take the leap and become an Accodex Partner. For me, the best reason is not that you can work whenever you want, rather it is that you can work how you want and keep things interesting. There’s only so much time you can spend in your home office/work office before you go stir crazy. I’m one of those people who need some variety in their environment or I’ll bang my head against the walls.
So let me tell you a story of my workday several Tuesdays ago…”
“When was the last time you were able to sit at your desk, relax, realise the amount of work you need to do but still smile and be at ease?”
I had to run an early morning errand – the dog needed to be dropped off at his grooming appointment. He would be there for a few hours and I’d have to pick him back up, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to get out of the house and spend some time in what I like to call the environmental office. I grabbed my Surface, grabbed my Canon AE-1 film camera and grabbed the dog and I was on my way. After the drop-off, I took a short drive to the scenic Wynn Vale Dam.
Upon arrival, I checked my calendar and confirmed the time of my next meeting. A 10:00 am Hangouts meet with a top client. It’s only 9:15 am though; good thing I brought my camera along with me. I took a leisurely stroll along the banks, across the walk bridge and further around the gorgeous lake. Photography is a beloved interest of mine so it was nice to unwind for a bit and practice my craft. Here are some of the photos:
I hope you like them – they were expensive to develop and scan!

Whoops! I got a bit carried away – there are only a few minutes to my meeting. I gotta get set up! Fortunately, with cheap mobile internet and the slim, powerful computer devices with webcams on the market today, this was a piece of cake. I found a nice park bench, got comfortable, set up my hotspot, connected my Surface, jumped into Slack and got the meeting underway. The first thing my clients remarked upon was the picturesque background behind my head! “Where are you!?” they asked. I promptly explained to them my day so far and added how refreshing it was to be out in the open air. They were both incredibly jealous of the freedom I have to get out of the office and work differently. Unfortunately for them, they are both required to stay in the office and wished they could get out and about the same as me!
“You don’t have to stay locked inside though”
You don’t have to stay locked inside though. You too can have the flexibility to work the way you want to as an Accodex Partner. Not only does Accodex provide you with the software and training run your own successful accounting practice, but it also gives you freedom. Freedom to choose. Freedom to express yourself. Freedom to work and live.
In this current day and age, that’s a gift.
Keep in mind that this is general information and should only serve as a guide. As such, it should not be taken as specific advice.
The decision to go out on your own and start a business can be one of the biggest decisions of your life.
We get it. All of us at Accodex have started our own businesses. So why do it alone?
