Accounting as a second job or eventual career shift?

Could I undergo a training program and be an "accounting assistant" on evenings and weekends during the upcoming tax season? Is there another way to become a part-time accountant? I'm also considering a career transition and wonder if accounting would be a good long-term direction for me. [more inside]

What's the perfect app to track expenses?

Is there an expense reporting app that's flexible, handy, and will help me finish next year's taxes quickly and easily? I know about excel, quicken, and various financial transaction apps, but what if I drive 100 miles to a tech conference and want to note my mileage? And what if I'm out entertaining clients and I want to pop onto my iPhone to note the total bill for the evening (before I forget the next day to open excel). Are there any web-based flexible apps for doing all the expense reporting you might need for a small business' bookkeeping needs?
