The Institute of Professional Bookkeepers
FROM THE MINDS OF CALMWATERS
I have a friend & colleague who is a fabulous bookkeeper. She has been my go to since my early years for bookkeeping advice. Taught me so many great things, I would not be where I am without her. She is however “cloud averse”. And the thing of it is, I don’t see a problem with that.[…]
It’s a rewarding and fulfilling career. And it’s not just because of the rapidly evolving financial technology or my terrific clients. I actually just straight up love doing books.

We sound like our grandparents for crying out loud! We are both regular runners and over the years have battled various orthopaedic[…]
I am not the greatest bookkeeper, there it’s out! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a half-assed one either. I’m pretty good but I don’t do inventory or multi currency and I generally punt payroll off to a provider. But I have a few bookkeeping mantras I live by – “bulletproof books”, “pay every dime you[…]
I am a browser nerd. And it’s Chrome I love, with Firefox as back up. I have Chrome Identities set up for every aspect of my computer life and never, ever sully them. They only get used for that which they were created for. They all have names and cute photos, separate themes and are[…]
