Fall Festivities & Holiday Products HOLIDAY GREETINGS & A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL! 'Tis the Season to be jolly and enjoy the company of friends and family. Christmas is not built around presents, it is the most celebrated holiday all over the world. In England, we celebrate Christmas day with turkey, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, several vegetables and stuffing (dressing) and last but not least, gravy. This meal is followed by Christmas pudding and rum sauce or custard. After dinner, we then have "tea" which consists of sandwiches, or turkey and salad, trifle, mince pies and fruit cake with marzipan. All we seem to do on Christmas day is eat and drink!!!! The day after Christmas day is called Boxing day. This was started by the wealthy, as they used to box up any presents they didn't want and give to the staff. This day is also a holiday.

Let’s Talk Tea

Volume 1, Issue



By J. Jerry Joyce Jr.

In January of 1983, Mr. Joyce, after a successful 15 year career in Accounting and Finance including four years as the Vice President of Finance for a Silicon Valley (CA) electronics firm, founded The Interim Controller, Inc.

The Company was then, and still is, an accounting based management consulting firm targeted at providing early and transition stage companies with controller level and related resources on a full or part time basis. Over the past 30 years the services have expanded but have remained true to the original belief that the accounting and controllership functions must guide a system that remains current, accurate and timely, and must provide reports in a vernacular that is easily understood by those who will read them.

The Company has had over 3,000 client engagements and has utilized the services of over 600 associated independent contractor/consultants.

Mr. Joyce spends the majority of his time focused on identifying the issues and needs of existing and prospective clients, then on finding the appropriate resources and solutions; however, he still retains a handful of clients with whom he has a direct relationship and to whom he has a direct responsibility. He and his wife, Donna, live in Northern California. Jerry Joyce 1801 Volendam Avenue Modesto, CA 95356-0983

The purpose, since we began the Memo in 1983, has always remained the same. It is to share good and helpful information, a little wisdom now and then, and to provide an easy means for staying in touch with the people who are important in our business and in our lives. THE CONTENTS OF THIS BOOK There are 52 Memos included and they are in no specific order with the subject matter sometimes changing dramatically from one week to the next. Issues arise from time to time with our clients and, when we find the solution for that client, we also share that solution in the Monday Morning Memo.

A LITTLE HISTORY When I was twelve years old, my father was a General Agent for The Franklin Life Insurance Company (which is now part of AIG). His office was in the basement of our home, where we also had a “rumpus room.” Each week, he would get a Monday Morning Memo from the headquarters (which were in Springfield, Illinois). For some reason, I developed the habit of reading that Memo each week. I was particularly interested in the wisdom they would share: “Chance favors the prepared mind,” Turn your stumbling blocks into stepping stones” and “Specialization Spells Success” are three that I have carried with me ever since. The intent was to motivate the Franklin Sales people and to stay in touch with them, along with sharing secrets to sales success. When I became a department manager in the early 70’s, I decided to develop a similar approach and I have done so ever since, although the delivery methods and the content have changed a bit over the years. THANK YOU Thank you to all of the clients and associates with whom we have enjoyed working over the past thirty years … we learned as much as, if not more than, you did. We learned from you and through you … thank you. WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID One of our long-time associates, when commenting on being a consultant and working on several of our projects over the years: “It’s not the job title that provides the satisfaction … it’s the work you do, the challenges you meet, the broken systems you repair and the lifestyle you get as a result, that really matters.”
