Earn CPE Credits Listening To Podcasts

Happy Almost New Year! As 2021 comes to a close, we've got a lot to talk about today, including an in-depth look at Blake's newly released app, Earmark CPE! We've got the latest updates on the Trump fraud investigation, and what's going on in the world of COVID relief-fund fraud. We're also spending some time answering four great listener emails on CPA exam stats, that pesky 150-hour requirement, QuickBooks Desktop, and client relationships. In app news, we're covering acquisitions by Sage, and Xero, and a Series B raise by Ekos, a craft-brewery-focused software! Grab your party hat, a glass of bubbly, and join us!
