If there was any doubt that I'm planning to be around for the next season, it's gone now. I just realised that I've already bought my tax software (Drake) and the folders for client returns (both at special rates.) I've bought a new phone system and upgraded by phone services to take advantage of it. I have a new tax PC and upgraded the accounting software. The waiting room is getting a face lift too with a new mattress for the futon. All I have left is to purchase office supplies and I'm ready for W-2 to come out.
There are actually a few more things to do; schedule and take CPE and a new Mac for the back office stuff. But I've never been on the ball like this before. It's kinda scary.
