Guest Speaker – Melanie Jacobsen – Small Business Accountant | Financial Management Specialist | Financial Trainer for SME’s

From the tender age of eight, Melanie knew she wanted to be an accountant. Her parents operated a small business and she was always interested in how their accountant played such a pivotal role to help them relieve the stress and worry they had as part of running their business. Melanie became a Partner in a mid-size accounting firm, and has since worked closely with local business owners to help them achieve their personal, business and lifestyle success.

Melanie’s passion is to educate her clients so they can realize the opportunity to learn what they need, to achieve their own personal and business financial success. With this in mind, MJJ Accounting and Business Solutions was formed.

A key factor in any financial success is cashflow. Melanie loves working with business owners on their cashflow and helping them achieve their dreams. For this reason she is known as the ‘Cashflow Queen’. Achieving your dreams can be fun; Melanie can put some magic into your business and financial success!

When not working with clients Melanie enjoys travelling ‘off the beaten track’ to any destination that is not a popular tourist hot spot. In her spare time she enjoys undertaking outdoor fitness activities and socializing with friends and family.
