Keeping Up to Date Keeps You Moving Forward

Many CPAs have been in the business for a long time. They helped found the firms they're still working in today and, after many years of serving their clients, many are considering retirement or taking a step back to explore other avenues in life with their families. Additionally, an abundance of graduates enter the work force each spring, bright-eyed and ready to embrace the industry.

How is your company measuring up to others when it comes to potential employees searching for places to start their careers?

You Can Be An Expert Too

When you went to school you graduated after earning your degree in the profession you wanted to go into and have been in for some years now: accounting. Your clients are happy, business has been steady, and you're living the dream one busy season at a time.

Are accounts receivable killing your business?

Are you a bank? Or a credit card company?

For too many small businesses, the answer is a lot closer to “yes” than “no.” Why? Accounts Receivable — the longer you finance your clients or customers, the worse it is for your business. This quote neatly sums up the problem:
