Accounting’s Anchovies | 03.16.15

We all have secrets. For example, my favorite pizza topping is anchovies. That's right! I can ruin any pizza pie with one word to its maker. It is a power that I do not wield lightly.

Now, I could share this information with the world, but the result of this fact being known would likely be my ostracization from the community. Lepers have it easier than those of us who love anchovies.

The accounting profession has its own secrets, ones that are much smellier and more offensive than anchovies on your favorite pizza pie. And like yours truly, many accountants aren't good at keeping those secrets to themselves.

But that's okay! Going Concern is a safe place for secrets to be brought into the world. Plus, we can all learn something new when we are introduced to something new.

Like anchovies. Just try them.
