Job at Prison Better Than Job at Big Firm

Happy New Year! In the last recorded episode of 2021, we've got app updates from QuickBooks Online, and Intuit ProConnect Tax, numbers from Expensify, raises by LiveFlow, and much more. We'll touch on PPP fraud from the Valley of the Sun, and talk about how virtual reality may become an integral part of your firm's inner workings. We'll also examine why working in a prison might be preferable to a job in accounting, and discuss why it's so important to connect with the younger generation of soon-to-be accountants. As if that weren't enough, we've got all the upcoming trends, and predictions in the accounting world for '22, and look back at some of our past wins and losses over the years. Grab a free (virtual) snack, a tasty beverage, and join us!
