Are we afraid to say the word Depression

A friend who is also a CPA and owns a practice asked me today if I was noticing a slowdown in collections. As it turns out my experience confirmed his. This makes me wonder, as we are finally hearing the recognition of that the US is going into a recession, should we be discussing depression.

This is a hard point for me to make considering my firm belief in the law of attraction. So perhaps my even mentioning this would could create the reality. If I thought that was true then I would not be making this post.

There are cycles that spiral within a range going back and forth. Then there are those that continue in a cycle that tend to go down with one event causing an accelerating downward spiral. In housing it may start with mortgage defaults going up which gets worse when even potential buyers finding it difficult to get a loan. So with a lack of buyers prices fall even lower bringing more people into default who before may have been able to sell their house.

This may happen with a business whose sales and collections drop. So the business has to let employees go. These employees put a drag on the economy by limiting their purchase of goods and services which cause more layoffs.

If we believe perception creates the reality then we may agree with the media and politicians who would want to limit discussion of this. Yet on an individual basis would we not be better prepared the earlier we deal with this reality?

To me it seems clear that the time for people to look at their situation and state it before the media or politicians get a chance to spin it. So if you are experiencing economic issues please comment and share what you see.

Free Accounting Software Offer Ending

About six months ago I started offering free accounting software to be accessed online. Since that time over 600 users have signed up to get this offer. Though many people have signed up for the software, no one has used it on a consistent basis. The only apparent reason I can suggest is that the software is not nearly as user friendly and easy to use as Quickbooks is. Therefore I am discontinuing my offer for free accounting software.

In fact Quickbooks and other very large software companies offer free accounting packages that are very user friendly and have some great features ( especially for the price :) ).

In the near future I will be concentrating on helping people get the most out of Quickbooks at the following blogs:

Chat with a CPA

Can I have a word with you?

This may not be a good question when the person asking that question is big, strong and angry. It might mean that it's time to consider running really fast! However when it is a friendly CPA is asking you that question it might be an offer you should not refuse.

So if are interested and would like to chat with a cpa then you should click here.

You may think that your issues are not able to be resolved, however often that is not the case. Recently a friend was considering whether he should purchase a flock of sheep as a new business venture. In fact he spent several weeks learning and working literaly in "the field". This was a venture that I found particularly interesting so I was getting updates form him in this new business opportunity. So I was very suprised to find out that he was abondoning this business because of the ever rising commodities used as feed.

He was very shocked when I explained to him that he could hedge his risk to rise in commodities by purchasing options. We went over his options and he was very happy to understand that he may not have to walk away from this new venture.

You may also may not be aware of answers that I may have for the issues that are hurting your business. If you are curious please feel free to go to http://www.cpabookkeepers.com/ or simply call me on my toll free# (866) 559-6434 .
