Ode To Maureen Windridge
What a great testimonial ...
Posted on: 15/01/2015 By: Maureen Windridge
My last few blog posts have been a bit serious but I think very pertinent to all business owners. However we can't be serious all the time can we? So this week I am sharing a client testimonial with you. This is my favourite of all the testimonials I have had in 20 years ...
do you delight your clients so much they are inspired to write poetry?
It's lovely to receive something like this and it warms my heart to know that my years of experience and skills as a bookkeeper are so highly regarded. So read on MacDuff!
"Her name is Maureen Windridge and she balances the books,
For folks who simply don't have time, or just don't give a 'damn'.
She works with smaller companies keeping their accounting straight,
So they can do what their good at, and not get in a state.
She loves to deal with numbers, and adores the work she do,
She loves to help the businesses the Government tries to screw.
So give your books to Maureen so that she can do her bit,
She'll make a bed of roses from a steaming pile of shit.
If you want to turn your business into a huge success,
Just give a call to Maureen and she'll sort out all your mess.
She'll tidy up your bookkeeping and make good out of bad,
She looks forward to a challenge, (is she really quite that sad?)
And when the year has ended and the taxman comes to call,
You can stick two fingers in the air, your accounts will say it all.
For they'll have been 'Windridged' and you'll find that's quite enough.
To tell the taxman and the vatman that they can both get stuffed."
Well there you go! How great was that? If you'd like to find out how I could help your company - and delight you so much that you want to write poetry - then wouldn't it be a great idea to call me on +44 (0) 1908 692378 and let's find out what you need.
Until next time ...
I consider myself to be incredibly lucky because I am a bookkeeper. At the age of thirteen I did a three year course in three months and passed with distinction.
Many years have gone by since then and I am still fascinated by the process of double entry bookkeeping. A process developed over 500 years ago by a venetian monk called Luca Pacioli.
Many people would like a machine that they could put all their paper work into at one end and it would come out the other end all sorted totalled and balanced. I'm glad it hasn't been invented because it would take all the fun out of my work!
