”Carmen has been my accountant for 3 years now. As a new Yoga teacher starting my own business for the first time, and the prospect of tax returns felt confusing and overwhelming.
Carmen put my mind to rest straight away. She is extremely clear, understanding and efficient.
I am so impressed by how quickly and simply she sorts my tax return out. Being a Yoga teacher herself, she totally understands the challenges of running a small business and making ends meet in an expensive city like Sydney. I don’t know what I would do without her and highly recommend Carmen’s services to anyone.”
Clare, Yoga teacher: Dancing Warrior Yoga SYD.

“You should know: you have such a special gift. I’ve done Yoga all my life, but you have such a real connection with us, and offer something so different and so very special. Really … thank you.” Antoinette, Yoga student.
