My name is Claire Owen-Jones and I am an AAT licenced accountant and a ICB registered bookkeeper. I also have a first class Fine Art degree which is nice.
I set up Loud and Clear Accounting at the end of 2015, when my son was 18 months old. I’d already been an accountant for 12 years at this point, so didn’t stray too far from what I'm good at.
Growing a business alongside a small, non-sleeping person isn’t easy. As I write this a miniature Captain America has wandered into my office, laughed at me and then left. This is normal as apparently, mummy is funny.
Like most mumpreneurs, I take my business seriously. Loud and Clear was shortlisted for a national accountancy award within 6 months of starting and I won New Practice of the Year on my anniversary at the annual ICB awards. I know none of you have ever said, I need an accountant and they must be award winning, but neither did my ego any harm.
Got a business idea, but don't know where to start?
