Did you think accounting was all about crunching numbers and taxes? Think again. "Beyond the Office"  host Bill Keller is joined by Jody Padar, the Radical CPA. Together they unravel the future of accounting in the tech era. This episode is a must-listen for forward-thinking professionals who are ready to step into the next evolution of their industry, revolutionize their practices, and not just keep up but write the next chapter in accounting. 

Here are five key takeaways:

1. **Embrace Mistakes**: Learn the importance of making mistakes and the value of learning from errors to fuel your innovation journey.

2. **Automation is Your Friend**: As automation takes over repetitive tasks, CPAs are free to focus more on advisory roles requiring interpretation skills, empathy, and effective communication. Discover how automating mundane tasks can lead to quick gains and free up time for more strategic endeavors.

3. **Master Remote Work**:  Learn how mid to small-sized firms can integrate innovation through existing software solutions, using automation for quick wins, and why aligning technology with strategic business goals is crucial.

4. **Tech & Strategy Alignment**: Hear how aligning your technology with business goals is more crucial than ever. Jody shares how technology companies and fintechs like Pilot, Zeni, and even giants like Amazon are beginning to edge into traditional accounting services.

5. **Evolution of Accounting**: Explore the transition from time-based billing to focusing on delivering measurable results, and how this can significantly impact client satisfaction and firm profitability.
