Well its out. Accounting Today over at WebCPA.com has named the accounting industries 2009 top 100 most influential people. Although I am not named – really no surprise there, I am all giddy about Liz Gold over at Accounting Tomorrow labeling my blog Stacie’s More Tax Tips as a “Cool” blog.
I just can’t wipe the grin from my face as I read that my post “An Accountants Search for the Bat Cave – A Story About Networking” is “a fresh, fun take on an old issue and Kitts offers an honest approach to finding the answer.”
Wow really, thanks Liz. I am truly flattered.
Liz has recently cast a line in search of “young CPA’s” in her article Young CPA’s Wanted! – young being under 40, who have struck out on their own breaking from normal firm attitudes. I must tell you that I am a little bummed that I am now considered an “old” accountant. But even though old, I am proud to say that I have always been known as the accountant lacking in the typical firm “mentality” or more accurately a partner once said to me, “You are not like other accountants. You really think differently…oh -But in a good way.”
No kidding, he actually added, “but in a good way.” However, that’s another story. 🙂
