This video is several years old, but I hadn't seen it before today and I'll be damned if it isn't glorious and worth sharing with all of you. I'll admit that the talent here really belongs with the editor of the video, but someone was inspired to make it by the words of the ageless […]
Twitter was created for moments just like this: Met Neil Cavuto at a Church breakfast. I present CPE at his company – Fox News ! ! ! pic.twitter.com/hzcfHubfEB — Timothy Gearty (@TimothyGearty) November 20, 2013 The look on Cavuto's face seems to be saying, "Okay, buddy. Mnemonics. Sounds great." Here's the two mugging together: A […]
Thank you for being a friend, Tim Gearty. It took a lot of digging but Going Concern was able to track down this exclusive photo of Peter's birthday celebration at Tim's retirement home. How sweet, he gave the birthday boy a pony! Happy birthday, Peter!
That's it for us, team. We'll be back with guns blazing on Tuesday. Have a safe holiday weekend and if you're feeling inspired, write something up and send it over.

Being accountants, we don’t have too may rock stars among us. Oh sure, maybe Tim Flynn is the cock of the walk at the Radio Station or Barry Salzberg can’t walk around Big D’s office without associates crawling all over each other to touch his clothes but these men pale in comparison to the immortal we are about to present to you.
If you saw this man on the street, his swagger would make your knees week, his impeccable attire would cause you to stare uncontrollably and the sound of his voice might overcome you with so much nervous excitement that you might projectile vomit all over him.

We present you with this:
Now we realize that the mere thought of Tim Gearty and Bob Herz on a cruise at the same time is probably more than most of you can handle but we had to share with you that the oracle of Becker Review was on Twitter bestowing encouragement and wisdom. All of you out there working to dominate the CPA exam can now rest easy that Tim will always be available in the Twitterverse.
A reader was kind enough to share with us a letter they sent to Becker after the software expired and was rendered utterly useless.
Here’s an excerpt:
“The Becker lectures sang to me like a siren’s song. Much like poor Odysseus, I screamed for more. Yet, unlike Odysseus, there was no one there to keep me safe. Tim Gearty became the man that I yearned to be. He is smart, funny, humorous, debonair, more dashing than James Bond and full of more knowledge than Ken Jennings. His style rivals that of GQ’s Man of the Month.”
