Meet Karan

I’ve been at Inspire for 1 year and so far I’ve experienced explosive growth, both personally and professionally. It’s been one of the greatest learning experiences of my life and I’ve had the liberty to freely build a professional network with the clients. I am grateful to have found a workplace with Accountants that are proactive, rather than reactive, and that are always ahead of the game.

I am passionate about helping small businesses grow, helping them realise their financial goals, navigating the twists and turns of the economy, deep diving through tax law which can help a client make their business tax efficient, or piece the tax puzzle together for our clients; these types of moments are what I find truly fulfilling.

Outside of Inspire

Currently, I am living with my family. I’ve enjoyed every part of the experience so far and can confidently say that my sister-in-law’s cooking is Gordon Ramsay material. Everyone at Inspire can vouch for how delicious her food is, I love it. For my past times, you can find me binging web series – my favourites being Billions, and Suits.

I also thoroughly enjoy hiking with loved ones for some physical activity. An unorthodox interest of mine is staying on top of global financial news as I have a passion for financial markets, cryptocurrency and block chain technology.

What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?

I can see an ocean of opportunity in everything that we do. In my brief time here, I have witnessed our team constantly expand and we’ve also recently taken on our talented virtual assistant Althea from the Philippines. You could say that our mindset here is to start local, think global; which I feel very passionate about.

How did you get interested in accounting?

I’ve always taken interest in maths and I’d say that numbers drove me to accounting. Coming from a family with deep generational roots in business, their exposure to me further fuelled my passion towards accounting as accounting is the language of business.

What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?

The biggest impact I’ve made at Inspire I’d say is when I helped a client that was struggling financially. I had put forth a case in front of the ATO and was met with objections for about a year before we were able to acquire a cashflow boost. The client was then pulled out of debt and they’d say that the lifeboat I threw to them was life changing.

What are some book you recommend?

I’d highly recommend Robert Zemeckis’ ‘Forrest Gump’ as well as ‘ The Pursuit of Happyness’ by Gabriele Muccino. Both movies of which I heavily relate to and see a little bit of myself in the protagonists.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?

I’d have to choose Quality education. I feel that education will solve all the 16 other sustainable development goals.

Outside of Inspire

Outside of work, I love spending time with my church group known as, “Children of Mary – Vincentian Marian Youth.” This group embodies a combination of Marian and Vincentian values. What I love about it is the community aspect and the activities we do together one Sunday per month which frequently involves church-related activities and get-togethers.

Any other spare time, I love staying at home and spending time with my family and pets, though I do also have some travel plans on the horizon. When I’m in the mood to hit the town, it’s usually for some shopping or grabbing a bite to eat with some friends.

3 things you love about Inspire?

The first thing that really stands out to me about Inspire is its incredible inclusivity. Its so culturally diverse and yet, everyone collaborates seamlessly. It’s a true testament to the power of diversity. 

The word “Inspire” itself lives up to its name. I find it incredibly inspiring to witness the dedication of our teams and fellow employees. It’s motivating to be surrounded by such passion.

Lastly, the atmosphere here is all about openness and a willingness to learn. Making mistakes is seen as part of the growth process, and we’re all eager to develop and improve. Being a part of this environment brings a sense of peace and fulfillment.

Fun fact about you that we don't know.

I’m a big fan of eating ice cream, especially on rainy days. There’s something so cozy and comforting about it.

I’m also into baking. Although, these past few months have been pretty hectic with my schedule, baking has always been my go-to stress reliever. Back in my college and high school days, whenever it was exam week, you’d find me in the kitchen backing. Studying just stressed me out too much, so I’d always start my study sessions with a baking session. I love baking cookies, and I’ve got this dream of mastering cake-baking, especially cheesecakes.

What movies/series you recommend?

I really get a kick out of watching Japanese movies from Studio Ghibli. There’s something about them that’s just so comforting, and it’s like a blast from the past, reminding you of your childhood. It’s that feeling of pure joy you get when you watch cartoons. So, if you’ve got some free time, you should totally give it a shot. 

My love for Studio Ghibli actually started during the pandemic when I was struggling to figure out what to do with my time. A friend suggested I check out Studio Ghibli films, and I’ve been hooked ever since. 

I’m also a big fan of K-dramas! In my downtime, I like to watch an episode a day to keep things balanced. I recently finished “A Time Called You,” and I’ve got to say, it’s a pretty good drama series.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?

I remember back in senior high, we had this lesson where we discussed our goals, and while all of them were important, the top one or two on the list had to be supported first. At the top of that list was “Quality Education.” I strongly believe that providing quality education to every individual, especially here in the Philippines, is incredibly vital in today’s generation. Education is the key to progress; it’s something we must treasure and prioritise. It not only enhances a person’s intellect but also equips them with the skills to connect with others on a social level. Quality education isn’t just about boosting IQ; it’s about improving our ability to interact with fellow human beings. Striking a balance between IQ and EQ (Emotional Intelligence) is crucial.

Secondly, there’s the aspect of good health and well-being. It’s essential to prioritise our health because, after all, what’s the point of living on this planet if we’re not in good condition? Being in good shape allows us to fully engage in the things we love and pursue our passions. So, it’s definitely something worth taking care of.
