For Heidi Tolar the two things she loves about working at Valorium Advisors is being able to help clients successfully grow whilst also being surrounded by a fantastic group of like-minded women who are encouraging, supportive and share similar work and life values.
A self-confessed fan of spreadsheets, Heidi prides herself on being hard-working, diligent, and reliable. She likes to look past the numbers when helping people achieve success in their own business.
A Chartered Practicing Accountant with a Bachelor of Commerce, Heidi also wears several other hats: Mum, chef, cleaner, teacher, negotiator, peacekeeper, referee, and taxi driver to her three children. No wonder she says she gets no free time!
Heidi is passionate about her client’s setting goals and loves to help build a plan on how to achieve them. But her ultimate business tip for all her clients is that their goals must be realistic. She is also an advocate for accounting software, Xero, and always advises clients to use it.
Heidi describes her life as a combination of Forrest Gump (life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get) and Fast & Furious (no explanation needed!). Her favourite saying is ‘the world is your oyster’ – although salmon is her favourite food. Courtney Cox is her choice to play the role of Heidi in a film about her life.
A lover of Christmas and the traditions of giving and spending time with her family, her choice of famous dinner guests would be Emilia Clarke, Mark Wahlburg and Julia Bishop.
Outside of work she is happiest when she is spending time with her family and their two dogs, Jazz and Loki or relaxing with friends.
Heidi’s secret superpower is swimming. She swam for Australia and in 2004 was honoured with a Life Membership of Hunter Swim Club. Passionate about giving back to the club that supported her growing up, she volunteers her time as Vice President and facilitated Valorium Advisors becoming a Race Day sponsor at Hunter Swim Club’s annual swimming carnival.
