M. Read Bookkeeping was founded in 2003 following the birth of my second daughter. At that time, I was working at a Chartered Accountant firm but struggling to live fully and achieve my ideal work-life balance. With much thought, I took a leap of faith and left my public practice career of 15 years to begin my own bookkeeping and software training business. Wow! Without a doubt that was one my best career decisions. I immediately took control of my life, taking time to be with my family while building my own business.
As did my daughters, my business grew quickly. I received many humbling referrals and made strategic decisions to capitalize on some great opportunities. As my client base grew, I could not perform all the work myself, so I began building a team with similar values and skills. Today, empowering women by hiring and leading other hard-working women, is at the forefront of my business philosophies. And, like years ago, when I decided to prioritize my work-life balance, I now lead my team members to work towards their ideal work-life balance.
In 2014 I moved the business out of my home to our current office location in downtown Moose Jaw. Together, my team has made this space feel like a home where we welcome the clients we serve.
