No work is outsourced. All data and information is kept safe and secure. I am a Canadian citizen working for both Canadian and USA businesses and individuals I can write for and with you to achieve powerful results. I enjoy writing and have the gift of the pen. Below are past examples of what I have written that achieved better the desired results! Math is the Music of the Universe. My profession is accounting and bookkeeping. Business support. Most of my life has been in business and mostly in the financial sector. I love what I do. It brings peace and order to chaos. Guidelines and numbers to make business decisions. I love getting pieces to a puzzle and to me a clean running accounting system is a work of art. I admire, like and respect the business people I have the honour of working for and with. I am Canadian with both Canadian and USA clients. The courage, passion and determination of a business person is truly amazing. Profit is very important to them and everyone else. There are no jobs without business people. It's almost a calling. One of the biggest challenges I have is explaining accounting terms and methods. Taxation a more complex part of it all. Often there is a yes but or no but answer to a question. It is like learning a whole new language. I was also a certified financial planner dealing in insurances, investments, pensions, mortgages, estate and retirement planning. It requires knowing how stock markets and world economies work. Oh oh..deer in the headlight look! A friend of mine,Arnold in Miami. Old accountant who really does not like retirement. A man who knows he has something more to give to this world wants and will start a teaching school with me one of the teachers. Teaching this different language. Helping people learn the basics. There are lots of opportunities in the accounting sector. Business people should learn the basics and many others in many other professions. Not only will it help with job skills. It will enhance logical and critical thinking. Math is the music of the Universe. Many of the greatest musicians and composers had math backgrounds. In this world often chaos and flux. Lies and different perspectives. Math brings order, a beat, a truth. Numbers do not lie. And when I am asked to explain something with accounting it sounds like a different language. It was to me when I first started learning. It does takes lots of education and practice. New pathways in the brain are formed when learning. It sounds like a different language,however it is THE universal language of all.
