Actively explore new ideas, posing meaningful questions, and seamlessly adapting to diverse situations. Approaching your innovations with an open-mind and flexible approach.
Always seeking out opportunities for knowledge expansion, skill refinement, and personal development. This value isn't confined to a classroom or workshop; it's ingrained in our daily interactions, projects, and challenges.
We strive for heightened awareness and intentionality in everything we do. It means approaching our work and relationships with a conscious understanding of the impact we have on our surroundings, stakeholders, and the broader world.
We strive to cultivate an inviting environment where everyone can experience inclusion and acceptance of their authentic selves. That being said; we unequivocally denounce racism, discrimination, and any semblance of harm within our community.

At Below The Line Finance, we operate primarily as a virtual business, significantly reducing our travel footprint. Our investment in remote technology and a low-energy off-grid office near Frome reflects our dedication to eco-friendly practices. Tucked into our meadow, reclaimed from intensive arable farming and surrounded by ancient woodland, this space serves as a haven for diverse wildlife, including red kites, otters, newts, and even glow worms.
Our commitment to conservation is further evidenced by the presence of rare breed poultry and Dartmoor ponies, who live in harmony with our herd of retired ex-racehorses. Undertaking an ambitious tree planting initiative, we’ve contributed to the environment by planting thousands of native trees and establishing a traditional Somerset orchard featuring unique old apple varieties.
At the core of our mission is supporting conscious businesses with a purpose—organisations that prioritise the environment, social impact and local communities. We are proud to align our services with clients who share our commitment to creating positive change.
Why ‘Below The Line Finance’? You may ask!
“When I founded this business, I aimed to infuse meaning into its name. ‘Below the Line’ is a term commonly tossed around in finance and business, often linked to cost treatment in P&L reports (so fairly apt in the financial sense!). However, my interpretation is that the real magic happens ‘Below The Line’—it’s where a conscious business owner’s ‘why’ resides.
Your ‘why’ is the driving force behind what you do, the unique purpose your venture serves, the sustaining element of your journey—Profit, People, and Planet. 💰👭 🌎
While the ‘Above The Line’ aspects matter—sales and gross profits that fuel the Below The Line magic—exploring what’s beneath allows you to shape your venture with a crystal-clear purpose.
With practical and strategic financial insights, I’m here to empower you through finance, helping you create and build your vision with profit and purpose. 📈
In a delightful twist of fate, one of my significant ‘whys’ is my nature project ‘Below Line Meadow’ (because it is literally a meadow in a valley below an old railway line) —a smallholding embracing ancient woodland and a meandering stream. 🌳 🌲 🏞
What was once intensive arable farmland is now a sanctuary for a vast tree planting initiative, retired ex-racehorses, Dartmoor ponies, rare breed poultry, and a plethora of wildlife, from red kites and deer to otters. 🐴 🦅 🐓
I am fueled by a passion to help you scale your venture with both profits and purpose. That’s why we kick off with your ‘why’—aligning your business growth with purpose! 🙌”
And here is a little visual representation of the magic that happens ‘Below The Line’….
Meticulous thought and intentionality goes into everything we do; and brand colours are no exception…
