Looking back on holiday traditions is among the “traditions” of many. Right?
So, as we were looking forward to the celebration this year, we also took time to look back on a Thanksgiving post first written BC. You know, Before Covid. In November of 2018, to be exact.
It turns out the updating was pretty simple:
The links were adjusted
Our name change from Schulte and Schulte to The Profit Constructors was noted
Punctuation and spelling errors were removed, and grammar mistakes were corrected (With the help of our dear friend, Grammarly.)
Additional information was included
Thanksgiving and the presidents
Speaking of Thanksgiving, what kind of content creator misses the opportunity to wax poetic about a seasonal holiday? I mean, it is on the calendar and all. Right? Pretty hard to miss a day that has been set aside by two very popular American presidents.
Two? you ask. Yep, two!
Thanksgiving and tradition
Then, of course, there is all the jazz about food and family, food and football, food and festivities. Who would pass up the opportunity to grab some attention concerning one’s business and how it relates to turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, dinner rolls, veggies, pumpkin pie, and . . . uh, you know Pilgrims? Or was that the Puritans?
Thanksgiving and content
Not to mention, there is all this talk about “evergreen content.” And, if you don’t happen to see this article until sometime in . . . say . . . I don’t know, maybe in August of 2019 (or now in August of 2022,) there is a genuine possibility you won’t be all that enthralled about turning on the oven to cook up some fancy (and secret) construction accounting specialist’s audacious turkey recipe. Uh-huh! You know I’m right!
“So,” ye asks yourself, “how is she going to pull this one off? What is she going to do about the fact that the weekly blog post is scheduled to fall the day before Thanksgiving in the year 2018?” (and again in the year 2021) Read on; dear one, read on.
Thanksgiving and virtual accounting
We’ve already covered the “Thanksgiving and More” part of what this post is about. So, now we’re getting to the part about “Virtual Accounting.”
That is what we do.
We do the accounting for our clients in that all so important way – virtually.
And, if you’ve been around for a while, you may have seen or heard us mention that we have virtual morning meetings weekdays with our Schulte and Schulte (now The Profit Constructors) team.
What you may not have known (until now) is that we open our meetings with prayer.
Yep, each morning one of us offers up a brief prayer. And, almost without exception, the prayer begins with giving thanks.
We thank God that we are part of an accounting firm called Schulte and Schulte. (Uh-hum – called The Profit Constructors) Our giving of thanks varies, yet it can include the means we have for the meeting, our business growth, our beautiful day, and so on.
And we offer thanks for our vendors, our clients, and the clients of our clients. Is that considered trickle-down praying? 🙏
Thanksgiving and our accounting clients
The gratefulness we have concerning our clients is part and parcel of who we are. If you are one of our clients or come across our radar as a future client, we give thanks for you, plus we ask for a blessing on you.
It is rather heady. We pray in gratitude for our chance to be a small part of the construction contracting industry. We watch how contractors shape the buildings, roads, bridges, and more where we reside, work, shop, travel, heal, worship, and play, and we are astonished by their accomplishments.
We are always thankful for our clients!
This year, in 2021, we are especially pleased to give thanks for our full roster of hardy, resilient construction business clients. They have toughed it out, stayed strong, maintained profitability, and are still building America!
