About Me

Marion Thomson
Accounting & Xero Teacher

(Self-confessed Xero addict since 2012)

I created XU Academy to help Small Business Owners master Xero.

It’s all too easy to start thinking that maybe your software is not the best, maybe what your colleagues are using is better than what you have. Do you suffer from ‘shiny object syndrome’ like the rest of us?

I understand how you feel. 

Well I’m here to tell you that there is absolutely no need to look at alternatives. Xero is here to stay and Xero will work for you perfectly. But only if you take the time to learn how to use it properly.

Whether you are new to Xero, a regular user, or a manager who only logs on to Xero occasionally I can help you save time on data entry, reduce mistakes and create meaningful reports for your business.

And if you are not ready to commit to Xero, I’m still here to help you with your accounting.

I’m Marion, a totally devoted fan of Xero since 2012. I’ve spent my career with numbers, but with the determination to understand the numbers and always, always to get others working with me to understand the numbers as well.

A wee bit about me …

I’m Marion, a slightly obsessed lover of Xero since 2012.  I’ve spent my career with numbers (my accountancy finals were over 20 years ago!), but with the determination to understand the numbers and always, always to get others working with me to understand the numbers as well.

Now I’ve changed my focus from accounting to teaching.  I’m determined to be the best teacher of Xero for small business owners you will find.  In addition, I’m happy to teach you the basics of accounting if you’re not yet ready to commit to Xero.

When I’m not obsessing about accounting and Xero I’m likely to be found cycling in the hills, running slowly or enjoying good food and the odd glass of fine wine with family and friends.
