For many reading this, your morning commute may start with shutting off your alarm clock, making a pit stop for coffee in the kitchen while on your way to your desk (which may or may not also be located in the classroom you share with your kids).

If you think of your accountant as the person that ensures your fuel expense is coded correctly from that old, wrinkled paper receipt, then you are vastly underestimating the impact a good accountant/financial advisor can have on your business right now.
