Publisher's Note

Who's behind your success? RSM McGladrey would like to know. The firm has concocted a nifty little contest where you can win some golf time with professional golfer Natalie Gulbis in Las Vegas. Check it out.

Everyone has at least one person to thank for guidance down the path of success. Becoming an accountant is not the easiest feat. It takes intelligence, sweat, determination, and fortitude to get the job done professionally, accurately, and ethically. Whether it's an assistant, mentor from the past, university professor, family member, or boss, we all have someone to thank. This contest is a golden opportunity to do so.

Product Review: TeleNav + Google Maps = Successful Road Tip
Greetings all. This is a special summer vacation product review tech tip. My family and I just returned from a weeklong vacation in which we spent a lot of time driving. I'm sure every rational person reading this is already thinking that with gas prices being so high I must have a screw loose. So if I told you I did so with two children ages four and one, you'd probably think I was really nuts. Then, if I told you about halfway into the first day's drive, we realized our one year old had a stomach virus and proceeded to pass the virus to each of us over the next couple days, you'd just begin to get an idea as to how much fun we had on our vacation. But that is a story for another blog.... :-)
