After receptionist Amanda Pendergrass saw a YouTube video depicting people doing kind things for each other - and for animals - she had an idea. Why not integrate Random Acts of Kindness into her life? Her fiancé Robert was interested, too, so they work together. They give out little cards with each act, and Amanda is documenting their adventures on her Amanda the Crafty blog, which you can visit here.
Bookkeeper Bonnie Crabtree recently returned from a National Advisor Network (NAN) conference for QuickBooks accounting professionals in Orlando at the Walt Disney World Resort. “More than 85 percent of small to mid-size companies out there are using QuickBooks,” Bonnie says. “When clients start a business, our goal is to have them start QuickBooks through us, so they can start strong and avoid the pitfalls, and we can be their contact for issues and problems. We’re always glad to help with anything they need.”
Senior bookkeeper Bonnie Crabtree offers a tip to use when working on bank reconciliations in QuickBooks. “Instead of constantly grabbing the mouse to checkmark cleared items, use the up and down arrow keys to move to the cleared transaction, and press the spacebar to checkmark the item as cleared. Happy reconciling!” Thanks, Bonnie.
Congratulations to bookkeeper/tax preparer Dianne Kyne, who recently passed her Federal Enrolled Agent IRS exam and is now officially an Enrolled Agent. She can represent clients in front of the IRS in any state, which she’s excited about. It took 11 trips to Sacramento, plus several more to complete both the instruction and testing. “To me, it’s an accomplishment at 63 years old. I’m pretty proud of myself,” she says. We’re proud of you, too, Dianne!
