I believe it was 2007 when I met Randy Johnston and Doug Sleeter, two of CPA Practice Advisor’s thought leaders, both of whom are contributors to our magazine and also members of the magazine’s Advisory Board. I continue to meet, correspond, and talk with these gentlemen to this day, and my knowledge of the accounting profession and my own ways of looking at the profession are better and more creative for having these two relationships.
Add seven years and multiply that number by 15 because now I have the privilege of knowing all 30 of the CPA Practice Advisor thought leaders and hall of fame members, and the result is my mind is constantly being blown away by the new ideas and innovative thinking that surrounds me.
This month our thought leaders were asked to share their favorite apps with our readers. Time savers, quick fixes, tools of the trade, and just plain fun apps have been flooding my inbox ever since. The hard part wasn’t filling the pages with apps – it was sorting through all the fascinating and clever suggestions to come up with a short synopsis that would fit on two pages.
I could have just listed all the apps that our thought leaders recommended, but then there wouldn’t have room for commentary and description. So instead, I’ve culled the list for the overall favorites, the must-haves which are presented in this issue. The rest will have to trikle out to you, and we have just the vehicle for doing that.
Each of our daily newsletters includes a “Spotlight” section where we feature a video, a solution, an event, or an article that deserves special attention. In months to come we’ll be featuring the favorite apps in addition to the other important items you need to see.
Clever minds continue to develop apps and it seems there’s always something new to discover, so if you have a favorite app you’d like to share, something that makes your life easier, we’ll be happy to include that as well, so send it along or tweet it – my contact information is below.
Cheers for now ~
