Getting Involved and Connecting with Colleagues

What channels are there for CPAs to give to their profession? CPAs, newly minted and experienced alike, can participate in many opportunities and channels at the local, state, and national level.  Opportunities for getting involved at the international level can be a bit more difficult to come by and usually require someone more senior in … Continue reading

Getting Involved with the AICPA

How did you get involved with working with the AICPA, both as a speaker and as part of its committees? It was three years after I had started my own firm, IntrapriseTechKnowlogies LLC, and I was still trying to figure out a way to differentiate myself.  I had recently obtained the CITP credential and was … Continue reading

Getting Involved: Preface

Reflecting on recent posts from the “Life as a CPA” series, I am reminded of why I became active in advocating the profession and sharing my experience. While connecting with CPAs at conferences, partner events and society meetings, and mentoring upcoming CPAs, I am inevitably asked variations of the following questions: How did you get … Continue reading

Life as a CPA (15): Reflections

I hope you enjoyed Ty’s story as much as I did. It was interesting to read a story that is essentially about me, and to see the same events through another person’s eyes. I laughed, I reminisced, and I asked: “Wait, is that really what happened?”, and then went “Oh yeah, I guess it did … Continue reading

A Peek Into Life as a CPA: Preface

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.  My first two posts were about … Continue reading

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

Switching from financial advisor to business advisor

While reading Randy Johnston’s article “Switching Software for Better Client Service” in CPA Practice Advisor, I came to part where he said: The AICPA is projecting that the amount of simple tax preparation work will decrease over the next five to 10 years because of more automation, and that audit work will be done by … Continue reading
