Well, it's been too long since the last post. Sorry for the delay, guys. I had some errors in my HTML for the template for the site which were causing posts to not go through, My apologies.
We recently had the K2 annual meetings in Nashville, and I'm working on some projects which are pretty interesting (to me at least). They include:
- Working on materials for financial reporting and Excel.
- Working on documenting and preparing presentations for some tech conference sessions, including:
- My version of the gadget roundup / latest tech tools
- Working on a best practices document on supporting accounting software - including summaries of their partner programs. If you would like your product to be listed, please contact me.
I'm also working on a number of confidential client projects. Many of these are really cool, and I think the experiences are going to help their business grow - which will help my business grow. It's tax season as well - so I'm working hard to get all of the required filings out for clients right now. Definitely time for me to be a coffee achiever.
I've been in Knoxville quite a bit lately - but that's going to change. I have about 70 teaching days scheduled this year, which will put me on the road a LOT. Hopefully Delta won't go broke or anything crazy so I can reap the rewards of my travel. Major destinations include:
- Denver (7 days)
- Metro NYC (a LOT)
- Texas (Fry's, here I come!).
I've also got some coordination trips coming up, including a swing across the US the week of 3/13. I'm definitely going to oil the wheels on my suitcase and my laptop bag!
My plan is to have at least one post per week for the next few months. For those that don't know, many times I compose my posts on my Treo 650 while waiting for taxis and airplanes, so my extended home time has put a pinch in the posts (but my son and I are having a good time).
Finally, I have a new logo (it's spiffy!) with some stuff from cafepress. The website will have a new look soon - and I'm looking into taking a lot of the stuff I do for my customers (AICPA, Becker, and K2), and making some of my extended materials available on the web through blogs like this one, social bookmarking like del.icio.us, and possible sale of some PDF files to non-participants for some of the materials I generate. I'm probably also going to join a number of additional accounting software partner programs in addition to the Quickbooks ProAdvisor membership and the Microsoft Professional Accountants' Network to which I currently belong. The most obvious one here is the Peachtree Accountcare Program. I have seen some good stuff lately from them, and since I already support their product, I probably should jump off the cliff and join the program.
Best regards, and thanks for reading.
