Please, No Gifts

It's a fun time of year 'round the ol' Going Concern. For starters, today is our 6th anniversary. It's weird to think that I've had a longer career as a blogger than as a CPA, but I'll take it.

I also like this time of year because people email us begging for compensation threads. We like to oblige them, although some will complain that we're too soon or too late or wasting our time with a smaller firm. Whatever, it's all good Internet sport.

These discussions encourage accountants to think about changing jobs, going back to school, learning new skills and any other move that can improve their careers. We've been doing this for 6 years and we'll keep doing it until all of you are living like the accountant in Rihanna's #BBHMM video.

Except for that part at the end. That's not good for anybody.

Thanks for your continued support of Going Concern.
