Samantha Cantrell
I started in the world of accountancy when I was a school leaver at 16 and after 10 years of working in accounting practices, I decided it was time to leave. I set up my own freestyle dance school after I left as I had been dancing since I was 3 and I loved teaching but I missed accounting too so I slowly started getting my own clients. That then turned into my accountancy practice, In For A Penny Accountancy Services and we now have over 250 clients.
I created a sister business in 2022 which is Accounting For The Arts – this group has been created to provide accountancy services and advice for those specifically in the arts as we are in a very niche sector.
I do still have my dance school and although it is just a hobby for me now, I think I’ll probably be teaching for the rest of my life!
