After my matura with specialised courses in business administration/financial accounting and english I finished a rock solid apprenticeship as industrial sales clerk.
Afterwards I started working as accountant, added a few semester economies at the Duesseldorf University of Applied Science and the training course for the chief management accountant at the chamber of industry and commerce (Bilanzbuchhalter IHK). Within many years of work in diverse accounting departments of a variety of different companies in as many different fields of trade I was able to pick up skills with a range of software products and accounting standards.
Many of these companies I worked in had the following similarities:
In many companies the accountants, also known as ”the pedants”, killjoys, fatigue administration, or even enterprise misers mutate to the all knowing oracle, enabled to guess what a purchasing manager refers to when he is booking 1000 pieces article X as incoming goods, combined with a delivery note of 20 pieces of product Y combined with a bill of 50 article Z,
approved and totally naturally carries the bundle into accounting.
All done by one look into the crystal ball off course.
This knowledge and countless vexatious discussions about the sense or pointlessness of outsourcing accounting departments to eu or even non-eu countries, the pro’s and con’s of inner company interaction, endless meetings on topics that are exactly determined by law convinced me to follow the train of thought stating that industrial economics is one of the social siences and listen to the words of a wise Professor:
“Please do what you are educated in and professional at, because out there are enough people who are clueless and charge horrendous amounts of cash.You my dear students are asked to go out into the world and show why there is diversification and that it is legitimate to spread jobs among those with expert knowledge!”
Henceforth I did as I was told and went into business for myself with something I am an expert in:
- I handle projects in accounting
- I train accountants
- I have got employees whom I offer a fair compensation, because they are worth it!
- I continuously upgrade my education and pass on my knowledge
- I am an advocate of the strategy that companies are more efficient when the employees understand why they are supposed to do what
- Teamwork forme means theme oriented, engaged, active, motivated
- I always go for full commitment, because I only accept tasks I am able to handle.
Meanwhile my company exsts for 3 years and I can be as proud of a top line growth of 150% as of my by now 6 employees that aggravate our performance.
