Meet Sakshi

I have worked at Inspire for 3 years and it has been the best years of my career thus far. This company has such compassionate roots and Inspire’s mission to give back to the less fortunate is truly alluring. I can’t help but be compelled to be a part of the bigger picture and know that my contributions to this business will directly lead to life changing moments.

I find the most fulfilment in being able to provide genuine advice and support to young families with growing businesses. The impact I have has been life changing for my clients and there’s nothing more rewarding than being able to provide value to others lives.

I treasure the time I spend with my family & friends and take every opportunity I get to spend with them.

On any given weekend, you can often find me relaxing and recuperating, indulging in Netflix at home. One of my pastime passions is exploring different foods & restaurants of all kinds. Some may say I’m a ‘Foodie’ – rest assured, that is an understatement.

What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?
Sakshi Sareen Family

Definitely the close-knit team culture that we have as well as how we’ve managed to protect and progress that culture, it’s been truly extraordinary. Everyone here has congruent visions and goals; that is helping our clients grow and thrive. We are all travelling along the same wavelength, driven with motivation. The atmosphere is electric and the smiles are contagious, how can you not fall in love with the culture?

How did you get interested in accounting and business?

Accounting actually runs in the family. Both of my parents have a background in Accounting and as I was unsure of what I wanted to pursue, I gave it a go and 10 years later I’m still loving it.

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

Creating a legacy of generational wealth for our clients is what we believe in. Many of our clients have so much profit but don’t know how to grow. I’ve had the privilege of working with one of our clients that was able to tax-efficiently pull money out of the business and gain 2 investment properties; for our client, it feels almost as if it came out of thin air.

What are some books you recommend?

I was recommended ‘The Leveraged business’ by Fabienne Frederikson by a client and I’ve found it to be really insightful in understanding business quality of life.

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

I’d have to choose quality education and gender equality. I feel strongly about these two goals as there are young girls in many nations that don’t get the opportunity to receive a quality education.

Meet Gargi

I’ve just started at Inspire and so far, the experience has been eye-opening. It’s so different from every other place I’ve worked at. I love the work that I do and I really feel like I’m making a difference in clients’ lives. I’ve found that all the accountants here have so much pride in their work. The accountants here are especially proactive, which I think is a very modern approach contrary to conventional accounting firms.

I think mainly solving problems, taking 1 step ahead and planning the future for clients is what I’m most excited about. I feel that my purpose is to make life changing differences in others’ lives. In the short time I’ve been here, hearing from a client that I’ve really helped them is so gratifying and gives me the impression that the work I’m doing is worthwhile.

I enjoy hanging out with friends, and we really enjoy board games. When we have dinner and play some competitive board games, the atmosphere is so thrilling. As I moved here 5 years ago, my whole family is back in India. My only relative in Australia is my uncle so I cherish our moments together. I try my best to see him monthly; and internally, it’s comforting to know that he’s there to support me.

What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?

The work culture and the type of work I’m doing every single day. I like how we’re not just colleagues, we’re friends. It’s a safe space, you can really speak your mind. We’re all from super different backgrounds and different stories and values, we’re very similar in helping out and wanting to make a difference. I like how involved i am in the clients’ businesses and it makes me feel apart of a bigger picture.

How did you get interested in accounting?

Accounting is something that always attracted me in school. I Opted for commerce in school at 15 and found that I really enjoyed the accounting side of it. I’m so calculative and was always analysing. When i did my bachelors. Wanted to look into the holistic side of it. Started in economics and realised i liked the idea more than the implementation. Liked accounting side of it more. and transitioned in accounting and information systems.

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

I think just taking the load off my team members and really trying to extend my hand. I feel like my team members think that I’m a great fit for the role as I’ve bonded so well with them and have taken a lot off their plates. I have devoted all my efforts to my work and consistently ensure that my work is quality. By being effective and efficient, I am able to contribute more of my time to the team which conversely gives my seniors more breathing room to produce better results.

What are some book you recommend?

I’ve been enjoying reading a book called ‘Emotional Intelligence’ by Daniel Goleman. It has been super insightful for me with regards to the motivations behind actions and feelings.

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

My choices would be reduced inequality, peace and justice and strong institutions. I know that we can’t attain 100% equality in any spectrum of life, but we can always try to be better. I also feel that it is necessary that everyone deserves a fair chance with reduced inequality in life. Society suffers from failed systems.

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.
