What Accountants Can Learn from Apple's $19 Polishing Cloth

We’re back from Scaling New Heights 2021 with lots of reviews, and interested tidbits for your ears, including how you can win your very own Tesla! Also, in today’s episode, we’re looking at Rippling’s $6.5 billion valuation, and Woodard’s new partnership with Wolters Kluwer. We’ve got news from Gusto, Audit Sight, and Xero, as well. We’ll also explore the FBI raid on Chinese POS PAX Technology, the nerve of Apple to market a $19 cloth, and maybe giggle a little bit when we discuss why anyone would defraud the PPP program for one single Pokémon card! In other news, we’ve got lists, surveys and reports on accountant app favorites, Office 365, and the decline of CPAs. We’ve also got news on Blake’s latest adventures, and some excellent listener mail! Grab a snack or five, and join us!
