In Business Since 2019
Best Immigrant Entrepreneur
Please tell us your personal story and about your business. How you started, and how you have overcome challenges.
I moved to Canada from Australia in 2012 and started working in an administration role at a company. After a few months, their bookkeeper left and they asked me to take over even though I had no experience in that area. I never would have guessed how much I would end up loving bookkeeping, it just seemed to fit with my love for organization and numbers perfectly. After 6 years of bookkeeping experience with a few different companies, I decided to start taking on some clients outside of my full-time bookkeeping role. I was already passionate about bookkeeping, but when I started working with other business owners and helping them to simplify, organize and streamline their books it lit a fire inside me. I loved being able to explain their financials to them in a way they could understand so that they can make great business decisions. Ruby Business Solutions was born in February of 2019 and I have been working with small & medium businesses since then. I think one of the biggest challenges that I have had to overcome would be all the COVID-19 government subsidies I had to keep on top of to help out all of our clients. I really wanted to be a great source of information and a sounding board for our clients, so I would send out emails with updates on subsides and also assist our clients to apply for these at no cost.
Why do you deserve to win the Best Immigrant Entrepreneur award?
I deserve to win the Best Immigrant Entrepreneur award because I have created a business that I am truly passionate about and it also helps many other Canadian businesses to succeed as they can have proper financial information to work with and truly understand what it means.
