          Philosophies of a Working Dad

          There is traditionally a negative stigma about the demanding work environment of public accounting and consulting.

                Thanksgiving: A Time for Reflection

                The Thanksgiving holiday is one of my favorite weeks of the year.  My kid’s school is closed for the week and we have made a family tradition to visit their Grandmother in Arizona.  There is no getting up for school, rushing to the office, driving to soccer etc.  It is truly the one week of the [...]

                  Return to Work

                  You’ll never truly be ready for the challenges and uncertainty of being a new parent.

It was not easy at first, but with careful planning, support from my team at work and [...]

                    “Busy Season?” Yes and No.

                    I went on vacation in early April for a week.  There, I said it.  It had been a secret I had been carrying around the office for months.  I even felt guilty about it. The few people I even mentioned it to looked at me with bewilderment. But that’s not where it ends.  I had the gall to not work in [...]

                        Hi, my name is Kyle, and I feel very uncomfortable writing in the first person. This is pretty ironic considering I spend my time outside of work talking in the first person onstage doing stand-up comedy. Yes, an accountant is doing stand-up comedy. It’s 2017. Things don’t have to make sense [...]

                            GHJ’s #GivingBack Focus Allows Me To #BeMore

                            Liam is 21 and has two weekly volunteer jobs: helping care for to-be-adopted cats and making/delivering lunch to Meals on Wheels clients. It is not so unusual, I guess, for a man to be so passionate about giving back to his community. Except this one thing about Liam: he was diagnosed with severe [...]

                              #BeMore

                              “Work life balance” and “flex schedule” are two phrases that have been thrown around and overused in the accounting profession for years. In concept they are great. They provide opportunity for me to fit more things into my day. I can now work my 10+ hour day, take the kids to school, have a [...]

                                As an international tax expert, traveling to countries around the world gives me a perspective and sense of how other people live and do business. I’ve been to many countries in Europe (to some several times), as well as to Africa and China (including Hong Kong). Most recently, I went to Vietnam [...]

                                    Reflecting on our annual firm-wide Community Day last week, I am reminded of a saying we have here at Green Hasson Janks: “Serving the nonprofit community is not just what we do; it is who we are.” Community service is a central part of the Firm’s identity, and we promote this company culture [...]
