    1 – 8 0 0 – H A R T

    * HART’s mind works in mysterious ways .. someone should take advantage of that

    For all intent and purposes, this is my “Business” blog – 1800HART.com is a domain alias for HBSMC.com .. which represents me, HART, the Proprietor of HBS Management Consultants. According to the blurb I wrote on the face of this blog (in the sidebar) …


    HART’s blog will contain matters of extreme great importance, or quite the opposite .. sheer nonsense

    HART’s blog is for anybody who finds this type of information useful .. although it is geered to help the single office home office (SOHO) individual to get organized with their business records and home office, or for the individual or accountant, bookkeeper or student eventually going out ‘on their own’

    I hope this information is of use to you .. If you have any questions .. participate in this blog

    At first, I wanted to be a great resource to all other budding accountants and bookkeepers and small businesses. When you work for somebody else, and with other people .. you have a valuable resource of people to help you get along with your day. This would mean stuff like:

    * People to talk to
    * People to go to lunch with
    * People who are interested in what you do – because they do it too

    It’s tough to be on your own. We have to rely on our own instincts and past experience, but really .. there is nobody watching over you .. your spouse will not help you get the jobs out .. you can’t just let the receptionist call the clients and send out monthly statements … nobody’s reviewing your work .. nobody is forcing you to do your expense report budgets .. No .. that’s YOU’RE job now. It is far and few between that I actually can go to lunch without it being a fast food joint, or a place where I try to get a seat that makes me look the LEAST pitiful – eating alone. When I first started out on my own, I tried the networking thingy but, it started to get too expensive buying people lunch that you may never do business with. Now, I treat my clients to lunch whenever I can and time permits, and they pay me regularly upon presentation of my invoice… it work’s out great!

    You see – I am an accountant and a consultant. If you want to read my lifestory … You can read it HERE .. But, you should know – I can’t just go ahead and discuss what I do or recommend for my clients – because

    a) My clients’ may be watching – for one thing!
    b) Information is confidential and subject to privacy acts here in Canada
    c) I am a registered Efile Preparer, and subject to additional security and confidentiality rules.

    Sorry! That goes about 90% of the good content that I originally wanted to show in this blog – my skill in problem solving.

    So .. this blog is more of a ..”What Catches HART’s Eye … and Why?” type of a blog … Some topics maybe really out there and quite off topic – but, I will usually end up with a few good topics once in a while. But, just in case I don’t .. I have two great categories created … The first is an AMUSING STUFF category, which has some interesting links to interesting people and sites and power point slideshows etc … The second is HART’s BOOKMARKS which is a living entity as I try to convert my own bookmarks into one stop place to look for stuff!

    I am reminded by a line in a BAZ LUHRMANN song .. callhart.com/crazy/2005/10/baz-lurhmann-everybodys-free-to-wear-sunscreen/ …. that stuck with me in the past years since I first heard this version …

    “Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.”
