Cut Budgeting Time in Half
Publisher's Note
Rob Nance, Publisher William Brighenti’s "The 10 Commandments of CPAs" prompts thought for everyone who has a practice or business, whether they are a CPA or not. Perhaps these 10 items fit your protocol – maybe they don’t. I invite you to post your comments or commandments (do so at the bottom of Brighenti’s article). Anyone who posts will be put in our drawing for a free pass (travel expenses paid, too) to our upcoming blockbuster conference AccountingWEB LIVE!
