We would like to take a moment to thank the hundreds of vendors, suppliers, and small businesses across the country that have supported the AccountingWEB site. As you know, the membership to the AccountingWEB site is free. AccountingWEB is an advertiser-sponsored site and we could not provide the news, resources, and interactive features that we deliver each week if it were not for the support of these companies. We encourage our members to visit our sponsors to see just what types of resources, news, and products they have to offer.

7. Capture, Control, and Conquer the Data in Your Organization

Knowledge Concepts - How much more productive and profitable would you be if you could harness the power of all of the data in your various databases across the firm? Imagine your time & billing information linked to client databases, which are talking to scheduling systems, which feed your CRM solutions - all of which result in the creation of a management "dashboard" so you can quickly see what's happening across your firm?

HUMOR CORNER

An attorney is someone who learns a little bit about a lot of things, and throughout his/her career learns less and less about more and more things, so that he/she ends up knowing nothing about everything.

An engineer is someone who learns a lot about a small number of things, and throughout his/her career learns more and more about fewer and fewer things so that he/she ends up knowing everything about nothing.

An accountant is someone who learns a fair amount about a fair number of things, and throughout his/her career learns less and less about fewer and fewer things, because he/she deals with attorneys and engineers!

8. Book Recommendation: Business Etiquette for Dummies

Sue Fox's guide to good business etiquette deals with e-mail challenges to entertaining foreign clients. It shows you how to behave professionally in any situation, avoiding embarrassment and learning to handle communication more effectively. This book offers a clear, concise format with a dash of humor.

10.The Basis of Business Survival

Today's forward-looking organizations realize that they can no longer rely just on price, product quality, or distribution to keep customers coming back. Why? Because companies can quickly duplicate their competitors' price, product, and distribution strategies. The only way to ensure the loyalty of customers is to consistently provide 100% customer satisfaction. Rod Johnson of AMR Research explains how companies can change management tactics to provide the greatest amount of customer satisfaction.

11.What I Did on My Summer Vacation!

As the nation's children head back to school, one of the first assignments they may have is writing an essay on, "What I Did On My Summer Vacation." AccountingWEB, Inc. would like to know in a 100 words or less what you did on your summer vacation. Did you trek across Africa, climb Mt. Everest, clean and paint gutters, or just veg on a beach in Hawaii? Please send us your vacation stories so we can share them with the members of AccountingWEB. Who knows, maybe we can get some great ideas on where we would like to go next year!

Send your stories to Kelly McRae at
mailto:kmcrae@accountingweb.com and we will add them to the site.
