Beyond Balancing the Books clearly articulates mindfulness in a way we can all move toward actualizing. I found the book to be highly readable and well-prepared with research, footnotes, clear indexing, and specific and simple exercises to put the techniques into action. As a former practicing CPA and lifelong devotee to the profession, I was engaged by the references and stories connected to CPAs and the world of business. At the same time, it was fully clear that what Marino is articulating applies to everyone.”

Beyond Balancing the Books engages the reader in a path to self-discovery. George Marino guides us to develop a relationship with the most important person in our lives—ourselves—by being present and living in the moment. He does a great job in explaining many complex concepts for people who are not familiar with topics like mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and awareness. The reader will develop skills such as being aware, being present, listening attentively, and having compassion that will ultimately help us balance the books and balance our lives.”
—Janneth Gaona, CPA

Read the Introduction to Beyond Balancing the Books

We all lose touch with ourselves at some point in life—it’s normal—but have you ever looked into the mirror and performed an internal audit, saying, “Who is this person?” or “What happened?” I am not referring to physical appearance, status in the world, or rank in your firm. I am pointing to the sense of who you truly are deep down. You may have a relatively satisfying career and personal life filled with family, friends, health, and financial security, and yet the discontent, worry, and frustrations are there as your constant companions. This is where mindfulness comes in. Mindfulness is all about accounting for what really counts—embarking on a discovery process in knowing who you are in your essence. With practice, it becomes your new normal.

More Praise for Beyond Balancing the Books

Reed Tinsley

“I started my career in public accounting in June of 1979 in Houston, Texas. Without a doubt, I wish I had this kind of empowering book to read then as well as now. This is not your typical book for professionals—it is a book with easy to understand concepts and practical mindfulness practices that conveys a message that our professional work and life has deep meaning and purpose, even in those moments when it doesn’t seem to be the case. If you are serious about discovering calm and clarity in work and life, this book is a big help and a useful tool to become more mindful each day. I highly recommend this book. In both personal and business life, I will always remember going forward: ‘It’s time to balance the books.’ ”

Ken Slivken

“I found reading Beyond Balancing the Books to be very beneficial and relevant in these tumultuous times. George has a way of being able to translate common business encounters into teachable moments. Let’s face it—distractions are everywhere. Yet the value of mindfulness, being aware and in sync with your feelings, acknowledgment, acceptance—life skills that allow for fuller and more meaningful existence. I found the book to be very solid from a journalistic standpoint and well written. Glad that I took the time to read it.”

Beyond Balancing the Books is an excellent resource to help us achieve self-actualization. George Marino provides us with practical advice and tools in mindfulness techniques. I highly recommend this book for motivating you to reach your personal and professional goals and contrastingly, achieve the delicate balance of work, coping with fatigue, and feeling renewed – Bravo!”

—Laurie Stanley, Senior Human Resources Professional, PHR

"This performance by CPA, writer, and teacher George Marino proves that you don't need a light-as-air yoga-instructor voice to effectively narrate an audiobook on mindfulness--even one that includes guided exercises. With a no-nonsense New Yorker's delivery, Marino tackles the topic of how important it is for fast-paced professionals to step back, reflect, and cultivate mindfulness. Marino speaks authentically from years of experience juggling professional demands and the need to nurture one's mind and self. He is approachable and soothing when talking listeners through a variety of mindfulness techniques that address challenging and stressful situations at work. His oral teachings will be happily received by anyone who has a challenging work schedule, unlikable clients, or career-related anxiety." Click here for Audible page
