Spilling Beans on Bean Counters

We don't know what we don't know. Until someone tells us! 

Large accounting firms are notoriously secretive about how their businesses are run. Every so often we'll get an inside look at the inner workings and that's always fun because I'm sure they'd prefer we'd rather not know.

Hopefully, more people in the know come out of the woodwork. Are you one of them? Email us.

Enjoy the read and have a great week.
