Hello, and thank you for visiting my website.
I am Heidi, a Welsh girl living in Portsmouth, Hampshire.
After years of working in Project Administration roles mostly within the defence industry,
I decided to go it alone
so in March 2019 I set up a company called Keeping your Books Ltd. The business was a Bookkeeping business, but working on the business I discovered I had more to offer so this is when Creative Edge VA Ltd was born and now I work from my home office with my trusty assistants Bobby, the dog and Bella, the cat.
Working for myself has always been a dream of mine and making my dream come true as been an enjoyable adventure with its low points and high points but it has definitely been one of my best adventures. I truly love working in my home office with my little assistants by my side who are sometimes mischievous but are normally snoring loudly away as they are right now.
Getting to help other small business owners make their dreams come true too, is a privilege and a joy, it is lovely to work with such a wide range of industries also. I have clients who are in the creative industry to the finance industry, I have clients from all over the world, America, Sweden, UK and even New Zealand so the journey I have had as a business owner as definitely been an interesting one.
Well here is a little about my work experience, working as an administrator for over 20 years as given me a vast knowledge of all things admin and the fact that my roles had a financial and budgeting side to them I have working knowledge of bookkeeping on a large scale which was a great start to my bookkeeping journey. In 2018, I decided to study ICB Bookkeeping Level 2 and am in the middle of my level 3 currently.
Whilst building my bookkeeping business, I started to realise I had a great joy in the Dubsado so I spent time completely workshops and training so I was able to offer this as a service. Mixing my knowledge of Canva with Dubsado as helped me create some beautiful forms which give my Dubsado set up that extra special bit of magic.
With these new skills I decided to offer new and wonderful services as well as change my business name to reflect the services I love to do and to show I am not just a bookkeeper, which you will see throughout my website.
I look forward to hearing for you and hopefully working with you in the future
