The article in the August JofA about Rod and Amy Burkert and their mobile CPA practice (“Going Mobile,” page 50) took me back 60 years to when my dad had a similar practice. He converted an old milk truck into a mobile office and served three counties in northern California. He used the slogan “At your door bookkeeping service.” Although most of my career has been spent in internal audit, I got my start in business working for my dad’s tax and accounting practice.
