SO, WHO IS LEX?

Ok let me be completely honest… I’m not your typical middle aged male in a dark suit who can tell you ‘how much tax can you save’ so if that’s what you’re after, you’ll be disappointed #sorrynotsorry. 

However, if you’re looking for someone who..

  1. Is accounts qualified and legally allowed to do bookkeeping and payroll
  2. Has a creative small business so understands what it takes to build one
  3. Is passionate about helping other people in business and sharing skills and knowledge

 

…then hi, I’m Alexis.

I understand that running and growing a business is hard work – I get it, completely… The late nights, early mornings, thinking about your business 24/7. The list never ends.

LET ME TELL YOU A BIT MORE ABOUT ME

I worked for Barclays for ten years and my favourite role by far was as a Corporate Credit Analyst. I learnt about contracts, security, covenants, personal guarantees, lending and various funding requirements.

To compliment this I decided to study AAT.

In 2014 I took redundancy to have my twin girls and whilst on maternity, I studied SAGE & SAGE Payroll.

I have since worked in various accounting positions including managing the accounts across various tool hire depots, pubs and businesses across the UK. During my employed roles I became a Xero Certified Advisor and completed the Xero Payroll Certification.

I am also the owner of Mila and Pheebs. We create stationery and craft activity boxes for children, a digital detox in a box, every month! I source items, negotiate with suppliers, complete stock takes, assemble products, fulfil orders, manage customer service, carry out marketing, process all bookkeeping, file accounts and everything in between so I understand what it takes to run a small business.

With these skills and experiences I was really passionate about helping other business owners with their bookkeeping, accounts and running of their own business. In 2019, I obtained my AATQB status and am now helping clients in various industries. 

Now you know me, I’d love to know more about you and your business!
