Meet the finance consultant who is empowering female small business owners to focus on doing what they love.

Jodie Dean grew up in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Her path into financial management and consulting began when she quit her PE studies and took an office job while she worked out what was next. “That employer put me through my first accounting course, and for that I’m forever grateful,” Jodie says. A stint in London working for Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch and London Arena (where her day job was soundtracked by Robbie Williams rehearsing) followed. On her return to Melbourne, Jodie took on freelance bookkeeping work and quickly realised she cared as much about her clients as the numbers. She rebranded her financial management business to AccountArts in 2014. Here, Jodie talks about finding her niche, going the extra mile, and doing her bit for the planet.
