Business Blunders

This series is a fun and unique way of addressing business challenges through fictional characters who tell anecdotal stories based on real events experienced by the author and contributors. The purpose of these stories are to teach how business problems unfold in the real world, portray bizarre situations readers can learn from, and be entertaining! Daniel W. Elliot, CPA

The stories are based on the main character Isaac who retires after twenty years in the accounting profession then moving to a Caribbean Island becoming a bartender next to a resort. Here, Isaac meets guests from various occupations and industries where they share their stories. From accounting to zoo-keeping, we will do it all!

The first book of the series is called The Beancounter, which although revolves around an accountant, covers many business topics including accounting and finance, contracting and procurement, human resource management, and business continuity planning. Daniel W. Elliot, CPA
