Like a lot of you out there, we at Bourke Accounting are changing our Thanksgiving plans this year. Most of us will be avoiding the road trips, with tinfoiled casseroles held precariously on knees, and relatives’ crowded tables. None of us made the decision lightly – and we are bummed – but at the end… Read More

Technology is a fascinating thing. The advancements in medicine and engineering are stunning enough, but technology affects humble office workers, as well. For example, Bourke Accounting has a brand-new podcast (stay tuned for some really interesting content!). Using virtual conferencing applications, we have the ability to interview people from all over the country with only… Read More

If you’ve spent any time with numerically gifted people, like you’ll find at Bourke Accounting, you’ll notice that they have one universal commonality: they can’t stomach clutter. Unsurprisingly, detail-oriented bookkeepers and tax preparers can’t help that their meticulous natures cross over to the physical. For example, Bill, our fearless leader, nonchalantly checks out our desks… Read More

The television in Bourke Accounting’s waiting room is usually tuned to bucolic forest stream scenes or gently swaying flowers amid rolling fields. However, last week was a little different. Last week, Bourke Accounting’s TV took a break from the peaceful and entered the anxiety-inducing world of election coverage – and whether you voted for That… Read More

The way things are going, wouldn’t it be nice to leave the corporate world behind? Have you ever considered buying a little farm, waking to the sound of roosters each morning and filling your days with the good, honest work of teasing a living from the land.

Even during these chaotic times, The Bourke Accounting Book Club is still reading. Recently, the selection was Sara, Book 1, by Esther and Jerry Hicks.

It’s Halloween! To celebrate, Bourke employees are engaging in a “Decorate Your Right Arm” competition (hopefully, this won’t become a tradition, as it was a lot harder than it sounds). While a lot of us really like Halloween, there is an aspect of danger to the holiday that isn’t evident in any of the other… Read More

The above meme made the rounds on social media a while back (variations of it still show up, often including threats of rotary phones, as well). After reading it, maybe there’s a little chuckle, a flicker of superiority and perhaps a muttered, “Millennials are useless,” before scrolling on to the next image. Obviously, memes aren’t… Read More

Although I’ve said it a million times, I’ll say it again: Bourke Accounting is very pet friendly. If my dogs were to get sick, my bosses would allow me time off – without repercussions – to care for them. That’s because Bourke bosses acknowledge that my ill-mannered puppies are family; you will never hear a… Read More

We learned all about Social Security in elementary school. As a kid, it seemed like a pretty sweet deal: you work hard all your life, you contribute some of your check each week and, years later, Big Daddy Government gives everything back; it sounds like a safety net mixed with a gently forced retirement plan.… Read More
