Toni has been right beside Nils serving as office manager and comptroller for 32 years. (Working next to your husband for that long and not killing him has been a success in itself!) It’s been said that behind every great man there’s a woman rolling her eyes. Toni is that woman at The Tool Shed where she’s been the bookkeeper, comptroller, birthday cake baker, receptionist and office manager for 35+ years.
Yes, it’s tough to work with your husband but she controls the books and Nils has no idea where the bank accounts are, so that really helps with job security.
Toni knows the business, knows the customers (and how many children they have) but she doesn’t know about tools, so don’t ask her if we have a router. She’s likely to check our computer connection.
