I was starting a new venture. When I decided I was going to open my own business, I didn’t want to do it without a good adviser. We faced a lot of hurdles in our first year of business. I often wonder where we would have ended up without Scott's advice.
Previous to this I was pretty terrible at getting my taxes sorted - I was lucky to complete it every year let alone have someone advise me on my financial world. Paperwork is not my forte and I would see a tax accountant once a year and that was it.
I really didn’t understand the options that were available to me and I didn’t have someone to talk ideas through. I haven’t come from a family who had a lot money to spend and I didn’t have a whole lot of history to go off.C
Working with Altus is like having a business partner. I have had a great sounding board throughout every step of the business.
We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for Scott and the team. He helped me make smart business decisions. Often it wasn’t even a financial decision, but just common sense.
Scott has such a rational approach to unplanned situations and makes me realise it’s not so bad. And I think “thank god I spoke to Scott before I made that decision”.
The team at Altus are also very approachable. They seemed to understand me and what I was trying to achieve very quickly.
Scott and the team have helped me get my agency to where it is today.
He’s helped me do all the steps you take in a small business as well as understanding ALL the little details about my finances and business world.
From things like budget planning, monthly analysis of the results of my business, ATO payments, working capital requirements down to growth strategies and sanity checking – Scott’s been there through all of this, at times on a daily basis.
