Close the Books

Closing the books” is a phrase that every accountant should be very familiar with. This selection isn’t so much a podcast as it is a podcast “snack,” but the nearly 12-minute recording comes with an inspirational message on how to apply this concept to your personal life.

Close the Books is part of the Good Life Project and is about learning to let go, move on, and look toward the future… “closing the books” in a sense. While this recommendation certainly puts the “ish” in accountingish, we enjoyed it all the same.
