Sandra Hunter Ferris and Eugene Ferris chose to live in the beautiful Kerry coastal town of Fenit where they lovingly renovated a old schoolhouse into a dream home for themselves and their dogs. An oasis of peace, looking out their kitchen window over the estuary makes me realise what a gift it is to have a career or business that allows you to freely chose where you want to live.
Coming from the small business banking industry, Sandra already had many of the skills required to set up her own bookkeeping business. She added to her skills by investing in training in cloud technology to better exchange information with her clients, and in SortMyBooks, robust cloud accounting software to manage her clients accounting information from anywhere. Sandra quick built her business from zero to fifty clients over a two year period. Sandra says, “I can work from where I chose to live. Yes I call out to clients from time to time, but mostly I work from home and with cloud technology they can instantly log in and experience the value of my work. “
