Meka Leka Hi Meka Hiney Ho 2021 Is A Go

Grab your party favors, confetti, and tinfoil, it's time to look back, and move forward! Blake and David review their past predictions and make some new ones for 2021. Also, a survey reveals that the majority of bookkeepers now offer AP services, and another survey suggests the remote work method is here to stay, post-pandemic, along with more discussion on state income taxes. In app news, Zoom phones in text messaging support and announces an email/calendar service, Square is buying a music streaming service, and Expensify launches, plus some discussion on what Google's return-to-office strategy suggests about the future of remote work. Happy New Year, and thank you for joining us!
