Plan B.....
Tax season ahead

Its been a long time!

I would like to apologize to the readers of this blog as well as the members of the NJSCPA for not making a blog entry for a complete month.

 

My studying and work has really taken control of my life.  Despite my efforts to keep a good work/life balance, the weight of the world continues to stand on top of my shoulders. 

 

On a lighter note, I have come up with an interesting way to learn more about accounting and the QuickBooks software.  A few years ago I bought the book, The Accounting Game: Basic Accounting Fresh From the Lemonade Stand.  The authors explain accounting in terms of owning a lemonade stand. 

 

I read the book in college but recently wanted to pick it back up to build a story line of company transactions.  My goal is to take these transactions and turn them into entries in QuickBooks.  Today, during lunch, I created a new company in QuickBooks 2011, called My Lemonade Stand, and will begin to enter in the events of the book’s story line.

 

We will see how it works out.

 

On a personal note:  How are the holiday plans coming along for you?  I have started to put together a shopping list, but have yet to kick off my contribution to the holiday lines.
