As a young boy, Monopoly was my favourite board game.
Back then, I worked in my father’s grocery store, helping with (very) early morning Footscray Market runs, packing the trolley, loading and unloading the truck, and so on. When my mates in high school asked their parents for pocket money, I was out earning my own. I’ve always loved working hard, cutting my own path and not being distracted by the masses.
The appeal of entrepreneurialism remains to this day. BlueSky is proud to work with business owners who, like us, think outside the square and work to make a real difference.
One way we do this, which differs from larger accounting firms, is our value-based philosophy. We’re not bound by a charge-per-minute approach, but rather our fees reflect the value we’re able to provide thorough results for our clients and by providing more contact time.
We constantly ask ourselves at BlueSky; what do people value? That’s how we’ve become more of a partner than a service provider. We take the time to understand the unique goals of our clients, then we work to make those aspirations a reality.
At the same time, quietly, BlueSky has become an employer of choice for accounting professionals who share the same values. While we grow, our motivation for making a genuine difference remains the same.
I still enjoy the occasional game of Monopoly. The right strategy, and determination, will always see you win the day.
