ANYTHING RING A BELL?

You know what you want to achieve in your business, though don't know where to start.

You've been thinking about going out on your own for a while, though struggling to take the leap.

You've got some great ideas about how to improve your business, though don't know how to get them off the ground and convert them into an action plan.

You ricochet between feeling excited, proud and inspired - and overwhelmed, confused and out of control, and wish you had the processes, procedures and systems to make sense of it all.

There's a lot more to running a business and team than you thought, and (strangely) you don't have all the answers. And even if you did, how could you possibly fit it all in?!

Your business is up and running, though it isn't performing as well as you hoped. You want to attract and win dream clients, or grow your team, and build your businessthough are fresh out of ideas, time or motivation (or all of the above).

You wish you had an industry expert in your corner. Or, better yet, a whole community of peers who get what you're going through.

I hear you! I've been there too, and it's exactly why I started Bookwiz Academy.

I CREATED THIS FOR YOU

With over 21 years experience as a bookkeeper, business owner, mentor, and training facilitator, I hear a lot of stories about the struggles, frustrations and roadblocks that people in the industry, like you, experience. But, more than that - I know it first hand!

I've been there too, and I wanted to do something, build something, that would help good people like you to learn, grow and thrive (not just survive!) in business.

WHY BOOKWIZ ACADEMY?

Martine Hoosen launched Bookwiz Pty Ltd in 2000. As a newly-single mum of two energetic boys, she was determined to gain her financial independence and thrive, in business (and in life).

Martine soon turned a solo operation into a multi-award-winning national franchise, and established a reputation as an industry leader, trainer and mentor.

Since launching Bookwiz, Martine has run a successful nationally franchised bookkeeping and financial advisory business; created and facilitated training and development programs to industry professionals; created and run Local Government Financial Literacy Workshops for small business owners; volunteered as a Franchise Council of Australia (WA) committee member to help advocate the importance of business & financial knowledge to the franchise sector; and most recently launched Bookwiz Academy to help others succeed in the industry.

Bookwiz Academy represents the culmination of Martine's 21 years of experience as a bookkeeper, business owner, mentor, and training facilitator. And perhaps more importantly - it represents her passion and commitment to helping others create successful businesses and careers, and achieve financial freedom.

Offering both membership and 1:1 mentoring programs, Bookwiz Academy supports, mentors and celebrates bookkeepers, accountants, and advisors by providing them with resources, insights and knowledge to learn, grow and thrive.

Brooke Arnott

CEO, The Small Business Lounge

"I have been working with Martine for a number of years now to assist with the growth of The Small Business Lounge. Having her as my mentor and sounding board has definitely assisted me with achieving my goals at each stage of our business growth. I would highly recommend Martine and her Academy to any bookkeeper or accounting firm."

Kristi Adams

The wealth of experience that Martine willingly shares has been invaluable to me, teaching me a high level of bookkeeping skills across a large scope of industries, and enabling me to have the confidence to move forward with my own business.” 

Angela Yates

Working with Martine has helped me achieve my dream of becoming a business owner.

I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience due to Martine’s expertise and guidance. Without this support and leadership, I would not be in the position I am in today.

Jessica Browne

"I've learnt a lot and now have all the templates, tricks and tools to expand my business. 

I am very confident to move forward and pass some of the blocks I had in business, that I just really wanted to get past though had been hanging on to for quite a few years."

ARE YOU READY TO GO AFTER YOUR BIG DREAM?

"Having a big dream is an inspiring and beautiful thing. 

Though going after it can be confusing, overwhelming, isolating and uncomfortable. 

I know, first-hand, that the dream of building your own financial services business can push you well and truly out of your comfort zone - repeatedly. And you can be left feeling completely out of control. 

I also know that, for me, the turning point came when I started to lean into the discomfort, and focus on harnessing the knowledge, skills, and support I needed to regain control and pursue my dream confidence (and make room for the next big dream!). 

Join me in the Academy and...

Keep thriving,

Martine."

ONE LAST WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER

"Thanks so much for spending the time to check out the Academy - it really is the first step towards gaining true control over your business and your journey to continually learn, grow and thrive.

Chances are you started out in this industry because you're passionate about what you do, love helping others, and have a penchant for spreadsheets.

The dream of financial freedom and work life balance beaconed, and you decided to go out on your own. Or maybe you're about to.

Like, me, you've probably come to realise that running your own business can be rollercoaster. One moment you're excited, inspired, and motivated, and the next you're overwhelmed, confused and exhausted. 

It's a huge undertaking to transition from employee to business owner. You go from being a master of your domain, to looking down the barrel of whole lot of new skills you need to acquire. System integrations, client acquisition and communication,  pricing strategies, compliance, marketing campaigns, recruitment and team management.... Anyone secretly dream of being an employee again?!

I've lived and breathed the highs and the lows of owning a bookkeeping business, franchise, and now Academy for for the past 21+ years. 

I've hustled, pivoted, evolved, learnt and grown a lot!  And I've developed a valuable library of resources, knowledge and insights into how to run an effective business. I know, first hand, that there is a better, easier, more enjoyable, and more successful way. 

Thank you for the opportunity to share it with you!

Keep thriving, 

Martine"
