We asked Nikki a few questions about her business – she shared the following:

Tell us a bit about what you do?

“I help brands and businesses create beautiful custom imagery for their websites, socials and marketing collateral.”

Why do choose to do what you do?

“I am passionate about working with people and getting their business visuals looking incredible.”

What do you enjoy most about running your own business?

“Being my own boss. Of course, all the risks, liabilities and stress is mine, but I get to reap the rewards.”

Would you share your number 1 business tip with us?

“My number 1 business tip is – operate like a legitimate business from the get-go. Have a strong foundation – invest in legals, numbers and creating a solid brand identity.”

Did you experience any challenges before engaging SYM Business Services?

“Was just a bit clueless with my accounts. Everything was manual – I didn’t have Xero, I had receipts in a jar. I just wasn’t truly clear on what I was earning/spending.”

Would you be happy to recommend SYM Business Services to others and, if yes, why?

 “Yes! It’s nice to know that my accounts and reconciliations are being looked after. I wouldn’t have a clue where to start. I don’t have to think about my BAS, I know it will be done for me. Linda and the team were a massive help during the stressful time of COVID and trying to navigate JobKeeper. I must’ve had a million questions like everyone else, and it was great to be looked after and have someone to trust.”
