I'm Yvonne Starkey CA(SA)
I help my students achieve success in their accounting studies
I struggled through my qualification journey, and I want to make my students' journeys easier. I provide advice, information, motivation and honesty for those who are studying towards a professional Accounting qualification.
I’ve lectured Accounting and Auditing at all levels, face-to-face and online, for over a decade, so I really understand the academic and mental challenges that students face. I work with students at all levels, from a variety of qualifications. From CPA, CA, ACCA, there are a lot of similarities in the challenges students face and how I can help them.
I focus on study coaching because I believe that our mindsets, and HOW we study is more important that WHAT we study, Find out more here. Your mindset, emotions and personality impact every decision you make, EVERY day and hour. This means that you need to understand your inner ‘decision-maker’!
Yvonne Starkey vs Yvonne Venter
Many students know myself and my website as Yvonne Venter. It’s still me, I promise! I married Richard Starkey in 2014, and it’s taken a while to update my surname on all my sites, courses, and I still want students to find me!
Yes, I married a Chartered Accountant. The Starkeys CA(SA).
a little behind-the-scenes
We currently live in Montenegro. We love travelling, and we work online, so we have location-neutrality.
We focus on building our own business and developing our entrepreneurial skills. I believe these skills are so crucial for students, as we realise that we need to take greater responsibility for our careers and financial situations.
Montenegro is stunning. You can see more of it and the lifestyle we’ve worked so hard to create on my instagram account
crazy cat people
Montenegro has a bad stray animal problem. Along with helping trap-neuter-release programmes, we’ve rescued and currently home 8 cats (Yes, I’m a crazy cat lady! But it’s fine, I’m married and hubby is a crazy cat dude!)
