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

Giving Thanks for Independence

As I reflect on what I am thankful for this year, I really am thankful for the gifts from others that have helped me to be successful in all my endeavors. So I thought I’d write a little mini-series sharing some insight into these gifts over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Yesterday I wrote about Confidence, today … Continue reading

As I reflect on what I am thankful for this year, I really am thankful for the gifts from others that have helped me to be successful in all my endeavors.

Being ready when opportunity knocks

I’m a political agnostic. While I may agree with various positions of several different parties, I’m thoroughly disgusted by all the politicking–as I think many people my age are–so I choose not to take sides. I put this disclaimer because, I’m going to quote a comment on a Facebook cartoon picture depicting a pro-government/anti-Tea Party position, … Continue reading

Occupy Wall Street should be Boycott Wall Street

This week’s Independent Weekly showed a cover of “we are the 99%”, in reference to the 99% of the nation that the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement says it represents. The 99% isn’t a precise number, but rather the converse of “the fact that income and wealth gains of the past 30 years have overwhelmingly … Continue reading

Is the Cloud the end of IT Support?

I’ve been writing a lot about the CPA part of my life, so let me finally switch and write more about my other passion: Information Technology (IT). While attending the NTEN Nonprofit Cloud Computing Summit (#npcloud) in NYC, the morning plenary speaker Ami Dar (@amidar) posed the idea that they no longer need traditional IT … Continue reading

Following your Passion

Fellow AICPA Leadership Academy Alumni, Kemberly Washington, had a great article published in The New Orleans Tribune last Friday titled: MPR: Should You Follow Your Passion or a Paycheck?  She says “there are so many people who are taking the risk to pursue passion over paychecks”.  She also shares her experience in leaving a good job … Continue reading

Start with yourself and lead by values

As I was reading the first section of the newspaper today, I was reminded why I don’t like to read the newspaper. It was all about problems, describing the problems, reasons for the problems, and what some people were trying to do to help resolve the problems. In other words, it’s really quite depressing. Or … Continue reading

Surviving the Whirlwind

While I was coaching an underperforming employee today, he admitted that he knew that he wasn’t performing to this best. And then he went on to admit that on a personal level, life as a whole was just not the greatest for him right now: he was dealing with family issues, financial issues, and a … Continue reading

Proud to be a CPA? Yes! But…

In his last Chair letter, AICPA Chair Paul Stahlin called on all CPAs to display our credential whenever possible: As I near the end of my very exciting and rewarding year as AICPA board chairman, I want to talk a little about introductions. That may seem like a strange topic to bring up so late … Continue reading
