Own Your Close
David Leary's Got a Theory
By Blake Oliver • Issue #70 • View online
Cloud Accounting Weekly is now Own Your Close, a newsletter for management accountants, controllers, and providers of outsourced accounting services. For more accounting technology updates, tune in to the Cloud Accounting Podcast.

If there’s one person in the world who’s definitely more nerdy than I am when it comes to apps, it’s David Leary. 
Not easy to do, but as the Global Small Business Ecosystem Evangelist at Intuit, it’s pretty much in his job description.
I was fortunate to have David as a guest on my podcast recently. We chatted about all sorts of things, including the insanity around virtual currencies, Intuit’s acquisition of TSheets, how the IRS might get an API, and much more.
Don’t miss David Leary on Episode 3 of Cloud Accounting Weekly: Podcast Edition, available now wherever fine podcasts are sold.
As always, you’ll find below my personally curated collection of links from this past week.
