I’m Lizzy Fone, your Tax Angel
Working 9 to 5
I’ll be honest, I never enjoyed working for someone else. I never wanted to be stuck in a cube, working 9 to 5. It wasn’t how I wanted to spend my working life all the way to retirement. I never imagined that an alternative to my conventional desk bound job could be a possibility for me. I felt trapped in job, which was defined and dictated to me by my employer. I was a wage slave when what I really wanted was to be an entrepreneur.
I was an accountant with a large portfolio and a great deal of financial responsibility, but I had no real power to effect any change in the business in which I worked. I was doing a stressful job but I had no job satisfaction or sense of achievement. The work I was putting in was not reflected in my success or my happiness.
I stepped up
I became a stay-at-home mum with no focus or drive. I knew something had to change. I realised that if I didn’t step outside of this uncomfortable box I was living in I would never have the sense of success or well being I desperately wanted. So I stepped out and I stepped up.
I decided the change had to start with me. I created Tax Angel to not only fulfill my own aspirations but to help other mavericks who know there is a different way. Being my own boss re-energised me and I knew I wanted to work with other entrepreneurs, like minded self motivated people who are creative and have big dreams and aspirations.
One year later
It’s been twelve months since I started Tax Angel, a whole year since I took the big leap and became responsible for every aspect of my business. I learned all the difficult parts of running a business and I bloomed.
I grew as a person, I am happier and more at ease with myself. I have learnt where my strengths are (and they are not always what I think they are) and where I needed to reach out and get advice. I learnt that trusting experts is how we evolve and expand. I invested financially and energetically in what I wanted my business to become and I have reaped the rewards.
Finding the experts
Becoming an expert takes a different mindset, you have to identify and appreciate not only your strengths but also your weaknesses. By identifying the gaps in your knowledge you can delegate the tasks in your business that you don’t have the time, the skills or the inclination to do. You invest your time better in your zone of genius and handpick your experts to do their zone of genius for you. This way you can spend your time growing your business. I know because it’s what I did.
Growing your business
I now provide this service for other businesses. With the right support in the areas where you feel things are difficult, you can be freed-up to embody your “expertise” and own your own area of excellence.
Yes, we do tax returns, financial forecasting, client focused research and VAT returns and have relevant qualifications coming out of our ears; but my big dream for Tax Angel is that we can hand you the wings you need to support you in your area of expertise, so that you can fly high above everyone else. Our aim is to provide you with the right expert at the right time.
Collaborate and listen
The saying goes “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together”. At Tax Angel we believe that collaboration is strength in numbers. We are building our Tribe and a huge pool of talent in order to give our entrepreneurs the best chance of success
This is why we offer a free initial consultation where you can tell me all about yourself, what you do and why you do it. Where do you want to go with your business and what are you big dreams? In essence, you tell me about you so that I can identify how and where Tax Angel can help you get to where you are going.
