Did you see the episode of ABC sitcom “Modern Family” where Jay and the family visit Mandalay Bay? In the story line, Jay learns there is an even better high level accommodation than the resort penthouse suite he booked so he becomes obsessed with trying to upgrade, only to learn that there are still higher levels of luxury to be attained.
I’ve been a QuickBooks ProAdvisor for years and take annual re-certification course for that designation. My level of activity and number of clients make me a “Gold Level ProAdvisor” now. But I’m right on the border between what Intuit classifies as a “Gold Level” ProAdvisor and a “Platinum Level” ProAdvisor. Now I’m tackling the “advanced certification” to move up to the next level. Unlike Jay’s pursuit, however, my extra effort is more than ego gratification. The tips and tools learned translate into real and often large dollar savings for my business clients. QuickBooks is the world’s leading platform that connects various types of business software with each other to run business more efficiently and profitably. The technology changes every month and ongoing advanced level training is the only way to keep up.
