Please join me in welcoming Jake Pretorius to the INSPIRE team.
Jake came to us a few months ago with his dream of becoming an inspirational accountant.
He has since excelled in his 12 week internship (aka baptism of fire!) all while juggling his last few months of Accounting Degree at UNI and being a husband to wife Rosie.
Jake is an experienced personal banker with Westpac and combined with his accounting degree, will help #InspireFamily strike the balance between paying just the right amount of tax, while still qualifying for a great loan with the banks.
The cool story about how Jake found his home at INSPIRE …
Jake is very much aligned with our core value of making a radical social impact.
He first saw Ben Walker, Jessica Kate and I on Facebook when we were packing boxes in Melbourne at Thankyou. for the #ChapterOne campaign with Daniel Flynn.
Thankyou just happens to be one of his favourite brands and social movements.
Seeing Accountants supporting Thankyou, he thought this is a dream come true!
So he Facebook messaged me for a coffee – and since then he has been a key figure in helping small business owners implement the principles taught at our famous Become a Cash Rich Business Workshops.
I asked Jake “what do you want to tell your grandchildren about your time at INSPIRE?”
To which he said –
“I’d be proud to say I was a part some amazing things. Ben and Harvee, I see INSPIRE going BIG, really big. And I want to be a part of that impact. I’m in with the vision, I’m in with you two. Thank you so much.”
Love your work bro, let’s make some radical impact together!
