August Financials owner Augusta Moses, has been honoured as part of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers 100 inspiring women alongside top cosmetic brand Elizabeth Arden.
Spark tenant August Financials has been featured in ICB yearlong campaign to recognise inspiring women entrepreneurs. Many of whom, like Florence Nightingale Graham, one of the wealthiest women in the world, and owner of cosmetic brand Elizabeth Arden, started their careers as bookkeepers. For a lot of women, the appeal to go into this profession is primarily to gain a firm grasp of business accounts, to provide key support services to business leaders, and to help improve financial literacy within the business community.
Augusta Moses, a mother of four children, started August Financials because of the flexibility that self-employment provides, and chose to establish her bookkeeping practice in SPARK. The practice has since grown, with the company moving from a personal workstation to a 1 person office in just 9 months. Augusta now uses her copywriting, and digital marketing skills to promote the start-up community in SPARK.
