Most of us have encountered some type of "Lunch & Learn" session while working in public accounting, corporate accounting or related businesses. The next time you are without a lunch meeting and have succumbed to the lowly sandwich at the desk, spend some time with the cast of characters in our Bloggers Crew. Jean Caragher and Rick Telberg (The SevenKeys CPA) are the latest to join the Crew. Over the course of that sandwich, get caught up on the latest in A&A, practice management, BV, tax, what young professionals are thinking and more.

It's all there for your choosing. You can then tell your boss that you had a very productive lunch with leaders in the accounting profession.

As for the price increase, we're calling it stealth because it's not a sticker price increase but instead a per-user increase, which really doesn't seem all that sneaky. The small fry who only needs up to three users still gets the lower price. Read More »»
National CFO survey finds optimism up, along with inflation worries
It seems there's another feel-good survey almost every day, telling us the economy is about to turn around. The latest survey reports that 48 percent of survey-takers expect the economy to improve in the next six months. Does that mean that 52 percent thinks we're stuck in economic doldrums? The picture still looks pretty bleak, especially as unemployment numbers continue to rise. Careers are on hold too because it's musical chairs out there in the job world. No one is willing to risk giving up a chair, even if he thinks the music is starting to play again. Read More »»
