I have known Patsy Lim for almost 20 years. We first met when I was a real estate agent selling real estate that Patsy was instrumental in developing. Subsequently to that she became my accountant and most importantly my friend.
Patsy has absolute wealth of knowledge when it comes to business. She has done just about everything you can think of in her career. She approaches everything she does with energy, expertise, a good sense of humour and high moral standards. It doesn’t matter what business you’re in – she has the ability to take what she’s learnt from her experiences and apply it to your business.
In recent years, Patsy has acted as a mentor for me. I recently started a new business and Patsy was extremely helpful in helping me to understand how to set the business up – not just with the accounting systems but also with the general procedures involved in running a business.It doesn’t matter what I’ve asked her to do. She is extremely patient and nothing is too difficult or too much trouble for her – she always makes the time. She is a true christian and she goes out of her way to be extremely helpful and to encourage people to achieve whatever their potential will allow them to and more!
When I first started in business many years ago, there was not much opportunity for mentors. I compare that to my current business which I’ve only had for 3 years and the help and input that I’ve had in a mentoring role has been invaluable. I wish I could have had that when I started my first business many years ago. Patsy has all the qualifications to be a truly wonderful mentor. She has an unselfish nature in that she is happy to impart her knowledge to help anyone who finds themselves in the same position that she herself would have gone through when she ran one of her many businesses.
Patsy is the sort of person who walks her talk and lives her dream. She is the most entrepreneurial person I know. I can honestly say that Patsy brings her enthusiasm, competence and integrity to her work with her clients in that way that is unique to her. She cares – and that shows. I’ve learnt to trust her judgment and wisdom. She is definitely the real deal. What you see is what you get! And she knows her stuff. I would recommend her services and training programs to anyone. It’s very obvious that she has learnt from her experience (successes and failures) and has applied the lessons she learnt along the way for the benefit of her clients.
Patsy is a true entrepreneur and I cannot remember a time when she was not involved in a business of some kind either as a Founding Member in a start up business, Manager, CFO, COO or Partner/Director.
I have had the privilege of working with Patsy and also being on the receiving end of Patsy’s mentoring. As an accountant, Patsy’s practice was innovative and client-centric. Her passion and love for what she does comes through during our sessions together. She is good at leading and inspiring people to act for the attainment of results as she is a great communicator and is at ease both working in a group environment or on a one-on-one.
Where others see difficulties or obstacles, she sees a challenge to be tackled. She is quite a radical thinker and has demonstrated that she will often look beyond the obvious, searching for the new and unconventional, questioning the prevailing wisdom but always taking a pragmatic and commonsense solution to problems. She always seem to know the right thing to do in a variety of situations. Her methodical and thoughtful nature definitely influences her words and deeds and best of all, she always has a smile on her face.
I have found that she does so much more than just try to live up to her commitments – she takes psychological ownership of what she says she will do and will persist until she delivers on her promises. She will do what is right and hold to her values and principles irrespective of the commercial ramifications. She is a true inspiration to everyone she comes into contact with.
I have known Patsy for over 15 years. Over the years Patsy has offered to me (and I know to many others) nothing but sheer dedication, encouragement and drive. Her passion and business experience shows up in everything she does. Her laugh and energy is unmistakable. Connecting with Patsy has given me the opportunity to learn from her experience in business and added tremendous value to me personally. She is quite a lateral thinker and when times has gotten tough in my business journey, she has been a pillar of strength with her support and advice – way beyond what most coaches, mentors or consultants would do.
Patsy is one of those rare breed that combines the skills and knowledge of an accountant and the creativity of a marketing expert. It never ceases to amaze me that she is just as good at the usual accounting services in being able to read a legal document and understand what it really means to me as she is at helping me with the innovative and creative part of running my business. I have no doubt in my mind that without Patsy’s input and mentorship, Loan Hunter Australia would not have existed today.
Being able to call on Patsy to bounce ideas off her and getting her viewpoint has been the key to the growth in my own business. If you are looking for someone to take on the role of a thinking partner for your business or you’re looking for a mentor for your business you must give Patsy a call. You will not regret it … I haven’t.
I have had the privilege of knowing Patsy since 2006. As a mentor and trainer, and now a friend, Patsy is about as good as they come. She believes in what she does and she has a passion to help others and to add value to them through her customised training and workshops. Her energy and leadership combined with her financial and business background gives her a unique blend of skills that is not found in many individuals.
I have found that one of her greatest strengths is in generating high energy and action to get results. She definitely knows how to get people moving toward a goal. One great thing about Patsy is that she is never afraid to admit her limitations and will readily refer me to another professional should she feel that I am better serviced by someone else.
Patsy has always been very generous in sharing her resources and is very well read – particularly on leadership and marketing. Meeting and exceeding your expectations would be a priority for her. You will find that she will work very hard to breathe life into your big dreams – making her the ideal person to partner with you on your business and life journey. I have no hesitation in recommending Patsy if you or your organisation want to take yourselves to the next level.
