Describe your business in a tweet.

Accessible chartered accountants providing quality practical understandable tax and accounting advice for your business.

What is your favourite business?

The E-Myth by Michael Berber. It explains the mindset that all businesses should adopt, even if they're not franchising. It encourages you to look at your business from the outside, focussing on structure, repeatable processes and efficiency.

Who is your business hero?

Anita Roddick. She was at the forefront of ethical retailing before anyone else, knew what advice to take to complement her skills, and grew a global brand from a small town in Sussex.

What has been your biggest challenge?

Finding Chartered accountants interested in setting up their own business who appreciate franchising and how it works well for both parties.

What has been your greatest success?

Helping franchisees build up their own businesses from scratch.

What piece of advice do you wish you had known when starting out?

Marketing and networking are so much more effective than advertising.

Why do you consider long-term strategic advice important to business success?

You need to know your horizon to keep you going through all the detail and problems on the way.

If you had a superpower what would it be?

To stop time. There are so many things to do so an extra hour here or there would be very welcome!
