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.


Meet Tina

Since starting at Inspire in May of 2022, I’ve been challenged in new ways and feel like I’ve been making the right moves. The team is enthusiastic about my work and actively supports my growth, which is a huge motivator for me. 

My primary responsibilities at Inspire include organising client files, preparing documents for DocuSign, and assisting with client requests. While I’m currently focused on gaining more experience, I’m excited to continue growing with the company and see where this journey takes me.

Finding myself in a new work environment has been a challenging but rewarding experience. Fortunately, Inspire offers a diverse and supportive workplace culture with excellent benefits. I feel lucky to have found a healthy working environment where everyone supports one another.

Whether I’m contributing to the company or working on my personal growth, my efforts are always recognized and appreciated. Seeing my contributions alleviate some of the workload for Gulshan and Tabbie is particularly fulfilling, as it means my work is making a tangible difference.

Outside of Inspire

I spend a lot of time outside of Inspire exploring Asian foods that interest me and comfort me after a long day at work. You can usually find me having a peaceful moment in a local park near my workplace. There’s nothing more fulfilling than good food and fresh air during weekdays. You can find me in my comfy bed watching Netflix or listening to Spotify on weekends.

How did you get interested in Client Service?

My professional background is primarily in Human Resource Management, which involves handling paperwork for the company much like client services. As a result, transitioning to my role at Inspire was relatively seamless. However, my true passion lies in assisting the team, and I find that to be the most fulfilling aspect of my work.

What is your favourite thing about working at inspire?

What I love most about working at Inspire is the opportunity to collaborate with the amazing employees here. The entire team gets together once a week to acknowledge and appreciate everyone’s contributions to our projects. During these meetings, we have the chance to catch up with one another and discuss our varied jobs, interests, and goals. Seeing the positive results of our collective efforts is incredibly gratifying. I also enjoy interacting with my colleagues and learning more about them personally.

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

Currently, my most significant contribution has been assisting Team Gulshan with tasks that I am capable of managing, allowing them to concentrate on more significant projects. My experience here has been a valuable learning opportunity, providing me with fresh perspectives on various topics. It has also given me insight into the dynamics of the team, allowing me to determine if I am a good fit.

What are some books/movies/podcasts you recommend?

The Twilight books I’ve read have been a source of inspiration for me. Reading them has provided me with a deeper understanding of how people can have vastly different perspectives and opinions on various topics. I find it fascinating to explore these differences through the lens of the Twilight series and believe that it is an excellent way to connect with other readers in the area who share similar interests. Additionally, I thoroughly enjoyed both the books and the movie adaptations.

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

I have chosen to support two causes: Zero Hunger and Peace and Justice. Hunger has been a prevalent issue in society for years, and I believe that providing food is one of the best ways to prevent suffering and promote healthy living for families. This is especially critical for abandoned children who have no means of feeding themselves. I also believe that conserving food is crucial in addressing the problem of hunger.

In addition, I am passionate about promoting Peace and Justice Strong Institutions as a means of advancing equality. We need strong leaders who can bring stability and fairness to society, and just laws to protect people and reduce oppression and inequality. A safe and just world will enable individuals to thrive and contribute to society.
