Joe’s professional experience and varied roles allowed him to observe a myriad of accounting and finance professionals, enabling him to make firsthand observations from the accounting trenches. Joe began keeping a list of every accountant mistake he observed for the purpose of recognizing and preventing common mistakes, minimizing their occurrences, and mitigating resulting disruptions. Joe recognized common factors contributing to mistakes between various organizations and verified that these patterns were universal throughout corporate America when he interviewed more than a hundred accounting professionals at all levels.

This led to this revolutionary book designed to hone your mastery of the accounting/finance profession and accelerate your career.
