I think I told you that Bill has involved his Bourke Accounting employees in a book club (the new book is Jen Sincero’s, “You Are a BadA*s”). Last week, at our meeting, the question was raised: Do you forgive easily? Most everyone answered that yes, in fact, they do forgive easily. There’s no point in… Read More

You just got married? How nice for you! Your new husband is great; he’s smart and sweet, caring and good-looking. He’s good to your family and he’s good to your dog. All in all, he’s the total package…except for one thing: he didn’t exactly tell you how bad his debt was before you happily said,… Read More

Since starting work at Bourke Accounting on September 30th, I have never arrived late. I am a grownup and know how both punctuality and alarms operate. I don’t know the repercussions for lateness (I could read the Bourke handbook, but I like surprises), and unless something catastrophic occurs, my perfect record will remain and I… Read More

Bourke Accounting doesn’t think for you. In fact, our Bourke Accounting tax preparers and bookkeepers don’t want to think for you. They simply share their knowledge, honestly tell you how things stand and allow you to make your own decisions. They might offer an opinion, but at the end of the day, they will neither… Read More

  A few nights ago, as part of Bourke Accounting’s bimonthly seminar program, we hosted Marianna Perry, proprietor of AEDs & Safety Services, LLC. Generally, when we think of safety in the workplace and defibrillators, we don’t get real excited (unless there’s an investigation being conducted by a governmental agency). However, Ms. Perry changed that… Read More

At Bourke Accounting, Bill and Tim will not allow me to touch the thermostat (someone tell me if this is a guy thing). I am encouraged to bring a sweater if I get chilly. So far, I haven’t been able to convince Bill that a bulky sweater will just ruin my cute blouse and patterned… Read More

Years ago, I wanted to visit a pal in Philadelphia. Living in NYC, I didn’t have a car. My friend suggested that I take a Greyhound bus (except he called it “The Dirty Dog”). The fare was unbelievably cheap and the station was conveniently located. Finally, it was only about 2 hours to Philly. I… Read More

  I have a friend who lives next door to an apartment complex that houses predominately Section 8 tenants. Once, she came home to someone’s worldly possessions on the lawn and a sheriff standing by for an eviction. In the middle of the night, occasionally, she’ll look out her window and see the revolving lights… Read More

You ordered a cheeseburger, fries and a Coke. What you received was 4 large milks, a ketchup packet and a blank stare when you complained. And these guys want more pay? Well, yeah, kinda. Minimum wage jobs usually aren’t very fun. In the minimum wage world, a worker can look forward to hard work, rude… Read More

We don’t talk about religion, sex or politics at work – Bill I once worked with a woman who was very religious. Walking into her office was like walking into the gift shop at the Vatican. One time I said the “d” word in front of her (get your mind out of the gutter, I… Read More
