March 2018 News
The first quarter of 2018 has been wonderful for us. We welcomed several new clients with a large variety of services and projects. You can view our client page here.

Prior to forming Platinum CFO last fall I spent over twenty years in public accounting. The early part of this year is the first time in over two decades that I have been able to see family and friends on the weekends without being rushed or stressed, to enjoy a warm spring morning working in my yard, or to catch an evening movie with friends. While our careers are a journey and we have to experience the past to get to where we are now, I do ponder and realize each day that I made the right decision.

This month our first article discusses the importance of password protecting our information with tips and tricks to dodge hackers. Our articles of interest include March Madness and our nation's budget. We learn that March Madness is much more than phenomenal basketball and exactly what we are paying for in the new government budget.

To my friends and former colleagues in public accounting--you are in the home stretch so finish strong!

Regards,

Sharon
