Special Offer for Accounting Firms That Are Staying Fit
Do you have a tendency to slump at your desk when you've worked too many hours? If so, you might want to try using a tension band. PostureNOW makes a band that is not terribly expensive and seems to be effective. At least it beats sticking a ruler down the back of my shirt, which is what I normally do when I'm working long hours. Anyway, the folks at PostureNOW want to offer a deal on their tension band to busy accountants this spring. If you use the word "TAX" as a coupon code, you can take $6 off the $39.95 purchase price.
Special offer: PostureNOW has provided AccountingWEB with a few of their tension bands to give away to lucky readers. If you contact me with information about how your firm is promoting fitness and wellness during this busy season, I'll send you one of the PostureNOW bands!
