I have been reflecting on the aftermath of communism while here in eastern Europe.  In listening to people here -- entrepreneurs, workers, managers -- I am struck by the lingering issues from their socialist past. Although I am now worried about our move toward socialism in the US, I have become more worried about the aftermath.  Economic decisions have a major impact on a culture.  Although the communist economic system is officially gone, its effects remain everywhere.  People here have become innately dependent upon the state.  It is become so much a part of the culture that it is difficult if not ...

Be Prepared - The Entrepreneurial Mind
In the last year running our healthcare company, we had a major hurricane and one of the worst ice storms in North Carolina history both within about five months.  While we survived this double whammy, many small businesses did not.  Ever since then I have tried to warn small business owners about the need to prepare for disasters. Be it floods, like we just experienced here in Nashville, terrorist attacks, hurricanes, ice storms, and so on, small businesses are much more vulnerable to the impact of such events than larger corporations.  There are steps that an entrepreneur can take to prepare: 1. "Cash is ... market research, surveys and trends

Sunday Espresso: Father's Day Playboy, World Cup, Joan Crawford tomatoes
Stages across the Bay Area are full-on gay these days. And that, of course, is not a bad thing. The timing is peculiar, however. How can so many theaters be producing so many shows with gay leads, love interests and themes, all at the same time? Is it the Glee factor? Or perhaps, it’s just the law of averages. After all the Bay Area is all about freedom of speech and expression, and it’s one of the reasons why I enjoy living here so much. Father’s Day Playboy Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I’m especially fortunate in this regard, because I have the best dad anyone could ever ask for. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Has anyone gotten certified as a CPA, and was a non-accounting ...
I majored in public communications, with minors in economics and entrepreneurship & emerging enterprises. I work in the film/tv business, I want to get certified as a CPA so I can work on accounting projects and do accounting jobs in between production gigs. Being a CPA will also help me produce more stuff in the future. I'm looking at post bacc accounting certificate programs so I can get all the credits i need to get a CPA (which really just means 24 accounting credits in my state, since I meet the other academic requirements with my minors minus the experience of course), and I was curious if anyone has gone that ...
