Meet the brains behind the operation

#Womeninbusiness | #Bosslady


From the young age of 12, Michelle already had her eye on her career as an accountant. In 1998, at 17, she began studying bookkeeping at the Academy of Learning, and within a year she had been head hunted by an accounting firm that would pave the path to where she is now. She solidified her work values and how to treat clients under the mentorship of Shirley Olsen, going from junior bookkeeper to account manager with a team of 3 in a short period. She worked hard and was eventually awarded a bursary through Unisa to complete her degree.

In 2007, a client she had worked with for 8 years made Michelle an offer she could not refuse. This would give her the opportunity to grow personally as well as professionally and open new doors. It was a very good year for her career, as she was appointed the youngest member of the SAIPA Board of Accounting Technicians. Being naturally ambitious, left her wanting to do more, this brought her to the next chapter in her life. 

In 2009, with her sister-in-law, GQ was born as a sideline business. The idea was for both of them to grow in their knowledge of finance and running a business with the final aim being to venture out on their own one day. At the time ‘G’ stood for Gomes and ‘Q’ for Quintino. 

By 2013 the business was doing well and they were on their way to accomplishing their dreams. However, this year brought with it a blow, where Michelle’s then partner decided to relocate to Ballito from Johannesburg and wanted to part ways from the business - the ‘G’ then became Grenfell for Michelle’s now surname and ‘Q’ for Quintino, her maiden name. This wasn’t the only blow that year, the group of companies that Michelle had full time employ with had sold, the new owner agreed to keep Michelle on under GQ, but this was short lived and after struggling with no income and the age old fear to go on her own. “No one is a success alone, we all have someone standing behind us” - and for Michelle this was her husband Ray, who encouraged her to take the final leap and go GQ, full time. Spoiler, she did and has never looked back.

“My struggles and lessons in life and in my career have taught me that doing the right thing will always get you the best results. Its been an amazing 7 years with GQ, and I still have passion for education in numbers, I find it intriguing and exciting and I love what I do. Don’t make clients wait for days for a response and never make them feel like they aren’t as worthy, because you may have more knowledge on certain things than they do. Always show your passion, always show you care, and you’ll never go wrong.”
