REFM -  Adrian Photo Square - CATOBI have to admit: I’d love to learn how to surf. I sorta imagine it’d be something like skateboarding (which I’ve tried a couple times, and happy to report no major accidents) or like snowboarding (which I haven’t tried yet, but maybe soon). Surfing involves mounting a wave, finding your position, then holding and adjusting that position as the water flows under you, supporting you with its force. Read more

Jason BlumerHere is a complex subject made quite simple with the help of puppies, children, and flannel boards. Understanding the subjective nature of value sounds like a complex economic topic, but even a child can explain it when you use a flannel board (who doesn’t love flannel boards?).

The Value of Puppies from Thriveal CPA Network on Vimeo.

After watching the video, see if you can explain value to someone in your firm. It’s not that difficult!

Greg Kyte 2Not sure if you knew it, but you can hire a company to kidnap you. It’s called Videogames Adventure Services (“VAS”), but they don’t sell videogames. They kidnap you.

 

Here’s how it works. You pay them a metric butt ton of money, sign ten kiloturds of legal documents, pass an invasive medical prostate exam, and then you get kidnapped. You and the company design the broad parameters of your kidnapping, including a predetermined kidnapping window (usually six weeks long) that begins as soon as you lift the pen from the last legal document.

REFM -  Adrian Photo Square - CATOBA few years ago, I was working on the interior components of our firm, and there were so many different ideas coming at me, that I had a hard time putting them all in context. I started to think about it: is there a way to see the firm from a bird’s eye view that can help me keep track and prioritize what’s changing, what’s not changing, what needs to be different, what should be left alone, etc?
