Finally, after years of planning, episode 1 of the Accounting Unleashed podcast is out! It's not perfect and I will continue to improve the audio quality as I go on but it was important for me to get the first episode recorded and released into the wild. I was very nervous recording this and I actually recorded the whole show twice! I believe it is "good enough" and it feels good to at least have one episode done and published. Now I can begin the work of improving the sound quality, my performance on the mic and a whole host of issues related to the site and podcast.
In this episode I give a brief introduction of who I am and why I'm doing this podcast. I then discuss a QuickBooks error that I encountered 5 minutes before recording the show. That led to a discussion of what I consider to be the proper way to record credit card charges in QuickBooks (or any accounting software). Finally, I finish up with my contact information and I retell my favorite accounting "joke". I put joke in quotes because it's really not that funny but once you listen to it I think you'll know why it holds a special place in my heart.
Here's a link to the QuickBooks support page that I mention in this episode:
QuickBooks error 3371: Could not initialize license properties
I NEED YOUR QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS!
I am looking for audio questions, comments or feedback that I can use on the show. There are 2 ways to "call in" and leave a message:
1. Go to http://accountingunleashed.com/voicemail and click the green button labelled "Start recording". This uses the microphone on your computer to let you record a message. It's limited to 90 seconds or less which is perfect for the show. This is my preferred method because the audio quality of the recording is very good.
2. Call (417) 413-3248 and leave a message. This is my second choice since the audio quality is not as good. There's no time limit but please try to keep it around 90 seconds if possible.
