Tsunami of Sorrow

Tsunami of sorrow
Swept over Sendai
Shaken
Stunned
Slaughtered
Now suddently still
Million tiny prayers
Enough to rebuild?

How to Count Beans when you don

I still recall the sense of relief when I mastered (well, sort-of) the art of start-up accounting during my first CEO gig. Our accountant (who visited us twice a month) gave me a crash course in QuickBooks, taught me how to read PNL, Balance Sheet, A/P, A/R - and also how to make entries for money coming and money going out. I have never been good at accounting, but I got QuickBooks - and pretty soon, I was dangerous enough to keep track of the business via these wonderful reports that QuickBooks could spit out on-demand.

But then came the two companies that I set up in Nepal, so far away from QuickBooks land. The first one is a software company, and we hired an accountant, an auditor (and also a lawyer to complete theĀ triumvirate) -- and they were able to concoct something in Excel that let me get the reports I needed -- so far, so good. However, the second company we set up in Nepal last year - our solar energy company Gham Power -- now that totally threw me off.

For starters, there Share: del.icio.us Digg Furl ma.gnolia Netscape Newsvine reddit StumbleUpon Yahoo MyWeb
