Debra Halliwell – Accountant
Debra Halliwell made me an offer I couldn’t refuse – if you come to Standish there is a lovely restaurant where I could buy you a coffee or other refreshment! I replied,’ I am always open to new experiences’.
As I pulled into the car park of Noel Chadwick Ltd, Debra had just reached the entrance. We entered together and chose a spot in the sun. She was right, the venue was superb, service level very good and great tasting coffee.
I had asked one of my 1st degree LinkedIn connections for an introduction to Debra. She replied back with an offer to ‘link up’. I then asked if Debra would be agreeable to a 1:2:1. Again Debra replied back yes and she asked if I could help her to take payments through her online business www.dgdiecast.co.uk. *Although she has a PayPal account, many prospective clients are not comfortable with PayPal as the only payment option.
Debra shared her career experiences with me which included her entrepreneurial spirit. In addition to her accountancy (P A Hull & Co.) and online business, she also runs a third business. I was beginning to wonder how she found the energy and time. In May Debra completed the Bupa Great Manchester Run for charity. Her current training regime involves 07:00 AM gym sessions!
I am constantly reminded by people that I meet, like Debra, that the attributes that help people succeed in any walk of life be it – Sport, Trade, Commerce, Personal goals and objectives etc. are the same – Vision, Planning and Action.
It was a very pleasurable experience meeting Debra. She has a clear vision of where she is taking herself and her business. And more importantly, she is doing it on her terms.
