What do you like about this subject?

Accounting is information for the small business owner. If your information is better, your business decisions should be better, then your business can become more profitable.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Simply looking at the amount of cash a small business earns may not necessarily provide all the information a small business owner needs.
