The team at Aero Group is small but our dedication to our clients is unmatched!
We wanted to introduce our little family to you through our Getting to Know Aero series, starting with one of our very own accountants, Edie.
What drives you, Edie?
What drives me is my desire to always ensure that my clients get the best tax advice and services I can offer. I feel it’s important to provide accurate tax knowledge and a positive experience for my clients.
My drive to constantly develop my tax skills and customer service skills is the reason I chose to become a tax accountant.
What book did you read that changed your life the most?
The book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter helped me understand the reasons why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
It made me realise that the way I thought about money was not necessarily accurate and made me want to change for the better.
The points that the book made about gaining wealth are what I wish I had been taught when I was younger.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
”Explore your creative side”
Creativity in any form helps us to grow personally and professionally, to view problems and solutions in different ways, and to utilise other parts of our mind that may have been previously untapped.
For example, I always try to be creative in gourmet cooking by trying out new recipes. I find this really enjoyable and it also satisfies the adventurous side of me.
What’s your current passion project outside of work?
I’m passionate about painting. I try to find time every weekend to paint because I have found that it’s a good way for me to relax after a busy week.
I also feel that it helps me to be more creative in other aspects of my life. In fact, some of my most creative solutions to work problems have come to me while I was painting during the weekends.
What’s the weirdest food you have ever eaten?
Wagyu beef tartare. I love trying different kinds of food but eating raw food, especially raw meat, is a big challenge for me.
The first time I tried wagyu beef tartare was at a French restaurant and I remember being surprised that the beef was completely raw.
It was very different from what I was used to and although I’m still not a fan of it, I’m glad that I got to try something new.
