Clever and Fun!

You might not expect a podcast about accounting to be clever and fun, but that's what makes this show so different. Mike Michalowicz, Ron Saharyan, and Liz Szporn bring their sparkling wit and clearly have fun along the way. In the meantime, there is great business information and interesting guests with fresh perspectives. I highly recommend you listen and subscribe!

A wealth of great business advice

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about a year, and I highly recommend it. Even though I am not accountant, this has been a great education for me as a business owner. Mike, Ron, and Liz are very knowledgeable, and also entertaining. This is a fun podcast to listen to.

Great Info

I would also add that introversion at its most basic is a matter of whether the person receives more energy from being with people (extrovert) or feels drained by being with a group for a period of time (introvert). Many of us learn to appear more or less introverted/extroverted but remain one or the other internally.
