  • Set a High Bar for Successors That Is Achievable

    The need to find the right successor is an ongoing challenge for CPA firms, no matter the size. Many owners who see a successor coming from another firm – through merger or combination – often set the bar so high that it would take an almost messianic experience. Yes, there should be high expectations set for strong leadership, planning, and communication skills. Perfection, though, should not be the goal. Here are four realistic high-bar requirements for optimal succession.
  • Data Breach! What Should Be Disclosed?

    What do Uber, Equifax, and Target have in common? All were subjects of data breaches that compromised corporate records with resulting damage to the companies and account holders. The problems caused by a data breach are often compounded when the breach is not disclosed in a timely fashion.
  • Having It All vs. Having Enough: A Holistic Life in Accounting

    I was asked recently about my work-life balance. How do I make it all happen? How do I stay engaged in my career as a finance and accounting outsourcing consultant, work with clients, and nurture my career development, while also raising my children and creating a vibrant homelife with my husband? I pondered the question for a bit, and explained that my life isn’t so much a balancing act as it is a holistic coexistence, where work and life meld together.
