“Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”, says Melanie, quoting Ferris Bueller. Why is this such a great quote? It takes a sombre look at life and reminds us that we never know what will happen tomorrow.
This is the perfect attitude to adopt, as Melanie Aumont, a qualified bookkeeper with over 10 years experience, reminds us that life should be lived for the moment. Melanie started her career in bookkeeping and has never looked back. “It’s as if I’ve been born to do this job!” she exclaims.
I remember being at the zoo with my dad. I was probably around 4 and it must have been our first trip there because I distinctly remember being so excited to see all the animals, but being disappointed when we couldn't take them home.
My favorite podcast is The Ongoing History of New Music by Alan Cross because he tells amazing stories about the history of music.
The Davinci Code by Dan Brown. The story is so rich and interesting, and I love how the plot is composed.
I have to admit, I’m very much a movie person. Some of my favourites are The Princess Bride and Back to the Future.
I love to spend a relaxing Sunday morning reading and drinking coffee. I also really enjoy knitting while watching HGTV.
I’m not such a big drinker, but on hot days I love a nice Shirley Temple.
I’m a mom of 2 boys and love spending time with them, whether it’s building Lego, play Nintendo Switch or riding bikes. This pandemic has certainly brought us closer together. In all of my other spare time, I love knitting and sewing (check out my projects here @cozycochonhandmade @sewmelticulous ).
I love the trend of ditching the need to print everything. I’m excited about the new technology and apps available to make it easy to transition to a paperless business environment.
I love the team atmosphere and communication. Every day we have conversations about how we are going to achieve our goals and our clients’ goals. It’s a great way to stay focused on what is important.
I think that there will always be an element of chance with bookkeeping, but I think we will see more technology available to help us do our jobs better. The internet is also going to change people’s lives every day in a big way because they can communicate better and more easily than ever before.
Thanks to Titanic, Leo DiCaprio. And still is, I think!
Croatia as it is today is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and I would love to be able to take care of it for the day.
I’d love to go back and see what life was like during the Renaissance period.
I think I’d pick telepathy to read people’s minds. Would make life much easier!
Captain Jack Sparrow, from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies… he’s just so cool!
