Transforming the Accounting Profession to Improve the World

I originally started this blog 6 years ago to start building my personal brand and to help promote the mindset change that was needed to make our world a better place. I thought that by taking a broad approach to promoting the values and philosophies that I could inspire the next generation of business professionals … Continue reading

Do We Leave Accounting Technology Laggards Behind?

2016 was my 5th year attending CPA Practice Advisor’s Thought Leader Symposium (check out the tweets at #CPAPA_TLS) and it continues to be one the most educational events for me as a change leader in the accounting profession.  The brain candy derived from being able to listen and contribute to discussions around the major challenges facing the accounting … Continue reading

Reigniting My Passion…and This Blog

It’s been a while since I last wrote for this blog.  And it’s been very busy year, perhaps one of the busiest or me in a very long time.  Demand for my services as a trusted IT advisor has multiplied exponentially—I now have a 4-month waiting period for new engagements.  And the number of requests … Continue reading

People at the Mercy of Political Whim?

Sitting here at the AICPA Governing Council meeting, I am astounded by the number of times the political environment as a key uncertainty, is mentioned by AICPA President & CEO Barry Melancon going through his professional issues update (a survey of the landscape of issues in the accounting and tax world).  This is not only … Continue reading

Why I love my career: clarity, hope, and change for the better

Being back in the depths of consulting work really helps to remind me why I love my career.  This week was a busy week with probably 75% of my days filled with client meetings.  But it was the last meeting of the week that made my week. My last meeting yesterday ended with me interviewing … Continue reading

Honoring Max’s Legacy / Diversity in the CPA Profession

Yesterday, I was honored to be the first recipient of the AICPA’s Maximo Mukalebai Award. The award was established to “recognize a deserving CPA under the age of 40, for his/her passion and contributions towards building the CPA pipeline, serving as an advocate of the accounting profession, and performing outstanding community service.”  It was quite moving … Continue reading

Are You Providing Enough Opportunity for Talent to Emerge?

The CPA profession is admittedly a competitive one.  We probably aren’t as cut-throat as the legal profession, but then again, we don’t have to do a lot of litigation so we aren’t trained to be as aggressive.  So pseudo-friendly “coopetition” (cooperation and competition intertwined) is a bit of the norm as young accountants join the … Continue reading

Are you working for/with a Have or Have-Not CPA firm?

I spent the last three days with 19 other thought leaders and four prominent vendors in the Public Accounting segment of the CPA profession. I say the Public Accounting segment because I think too often we forget that there are many CPAs who are no longer in public accounting, but instead working in business & … Continue reading

Celebrating 10 Years of ITK

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the official start of my firm, IntrapriseTechKnowlogies LLC.  The last ten years have really been quite a roller-coaster ride and I am still amazed that I can stand here today and celebrate ten years of trials, tribulations, and most importantly impact. Over the last month, I’ve been reflecting a lot about … Continue reading
