I have been doing bookkeeping since I was 18 years old, straight from high school. I starting my work experience with an accounting firm in downtown Hamilton; from there I was hooked. The most experience I got was with J.E.T. Dillane, Chartered Accountant on John Street. I am sure he is fully retired by now but he gave me the confidence I needed to do more than secretarial work. After having my 2 boys in my early 20’s, I decided to put my experience into the other end of bookkeeping. I worked as an accounting clerk for various businesses, a dollar store, landscaping company and a meat purveyor. Now I had the experience from the beginning of bookkeeping and I was ready to go back to an accounting firm, so that’s where most of my experience come in. Each accounting firm has their specialties and I learned each had their accounting risks and clientele volume. I always wondered if going back to school was the right time for me and then my daughter came as a total surprise at my tender age of 42. Now that’s a whole different discussion about experience. My last work employment was with an accounting firm in Stoney Creek as a secretary and then worked up to the Office Manager.
This experience gave me a chance to actually run a small firm on my own. After 13 years I ventured on my own and took the pushed plunge to build a bookkeeping business with the pleasant offerings of new and familiar clients. Now to the present. I have been working under the name Mrs C’s Bookkeeping Services for the past 10 years and this year I have changed my name to 5ive Point Business Services Inc., setting up for a move to an office with staff and continue to work at the job I love. That’s what has made it so easy for me. First the confidence and gratitude of my clients with the work I do for them as well as doing what I have enjoyed pretty much all my life. So even though I never did get my education, my experience has taken me
to where I still love the bookkeeping process. I still have 10 more years in me before I will be ready to retire so let’s see where the next 10 years take me.
Rose has been doing out books for the past 5 years. She has brought a tremendous blend of professionalism, efficiency and integrity to this component of our business. I would not hesitate to recommend her or her company, 5ive Point Business Services Inc. for any task involving financing within our company.
Rosemary has done our taxes for several years and has always done her best for us. She has gone over and beyond our expectations several times. I would highly recommend Rosemary for personal and business. She has helped us in both areas. Thanks, Rosemary for all you have done for us.
I am so thankful that Rosemary's name was passed along to us. From the beginning, Rose has been supportive and so helpful in sorting out everything involved with doing my father's taxes. She is very knowledgeable and has an impressive work ethic; she responds to emails and phone calls promptly even though she is very busy!! I appreciate her kindness and integrity and I selfishly hope that she doesn't retire any time soon!
I have been using rosemary’s services for years. Its been a pleasant experience since day one. She has years of knowledge that can help any business no matter the size. Before I started with rosemary my bookkeeping was unorganised and outdated. I’m happy to say Rosemary has my books in order and everything is accounted for. Would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in having someone who not only gets the job done right but takes an interest in your business and will help you thrive and improve. I would highly recommend 5ivepoint business services!
