Busy Is as Busy Does

Busy Is as Busy Does

It’s April 17, and I have only one thing to say. Thank you! We’ve made it through yet another busy season, and while we may be a little more sleep-deprived than usual, we’re none the worse for the wear and tear of the annual rite of passage.

First and foremost, thank you to our clients, whose faith in Marcum is our reason for getting up in the morning. You not only permit us to serve as your accountants and tax advisors, but as your partners and confidantes. We deeply appreciate your trust in us, and the opportunity you give us to help you reach your goals. It is a privilege and a responsibility on which we place the highest premium.

Second, to my partners and our outstanding staff, who work so incredibly hard to ensure that we deliver on the Marcum promise to our clients, not only during busy season, but every day of the year. I am proud to be on your team, and I want you to know that I recognize your invaluable contributions to our clients’ and our Firm’s success. You are Marcum.

Last but by no means least, to our families, who bear the brunt of our late nights and working weekends throughout busy season, most especially during the homestretch leading up to April 15. It truly takes a village, and I am very grateful that our community is populated by people as understanding and supportive as our extended Marcum family.

As I write this, I know that many of our team members may not see this week’s column right away, because they are home catching up on some serious sleep, or they’re on vacation catching up on some extremely well-deserved PTO. That’s OK. They have certainly earned it! When they get back, the thank you will be waiting for them.

And then it will be time for us all to roll up our sleeves and get busy again.
