When do you make your New Year’s Resolution? Do you wait until after the ball drops at midnight on January 1 or do you jot down some ideas prior?
If you are like me, you at least have an idea of what you want to accomplish in the following year, whether you formalize it or not before the calendar actually changes.
When I sat down to prepare my list of goals for 2015, I wanted to make it a priority to stay in touch with my business colleagues, clients and friends in a much more meaningful way than I ever have in my past 18 years in business.
What you are seeing today, my very own blog, is the result of that goal.
My goal is to send you an email (which will be shorter than this initial one) every month or two to connect you with my blog… The Forensic Lady: Tips and tales of financial investigations from a forensic accountant’s notebook.
Why “The Forensic Lady?” It’s a valid question. If you know me through business, you may recall seeing the formal title on my business card reads Director of Forensic Accounting Services. The “Forensic Lady” showcases my niche and demonstrates that my skill set is different than the rest of the CPAs doing the traditional accounting, auditing, and tax work.
So without further ado, I invite you to check out my blog and read the first post for the month of December, which is about my thoughts on financial infidelities.
My real mission is for these tips and tales of my work to help you avoid certain financial issues or be armed with the information to better resolve them when they arise. Other areas of my work you can expect to see addressed in my blog include employee embezzlement, fraud prevention and internal controls, owner disputes, insurance claims, divorces, bankruptcy, economic damages related to lost profits or lost value, etc.
Stay tuned for more in 2015, because I’m excited about keeping my pre-New Year’s Resolution and being in touch with you more often. Until then, have a wonderful holiday season with family and friends and enjoy all the good things that come with this time of year.
