I am back now and ready to catch up. First things first- I quit my full time job in accounting. I actually did it! I had been in my role as an investment accountant working for a large insurance company for two years. There is a recap of what my first year in corporate was like posted in another blog. While it was a fantastic job, I had to let it go. In today's video I will be sharing how I knew it was time to quit my job and what I did to prepare for my departure.

Ahhhhh more failure. I know that the AICPA has recently released scores and many people’s results were unfavorable. So if you have found yourself questioning whether or not it makes sense for you to continue on this journey-this video is for you. As many of you know, I’ve found myself on the failing side of the CPA exam process more than a few times. I too, have questioned whether or not the process would be worth it in the end. Now that I am on the other side of things I can honestly say that it has been worth it. This isn’t necessarily true for everyone though.

The beautiful thing about the accounting field are the endless career possibilities. Often times when students think of successful accounting careers, they think of Firm Partners, CFOs, and Controllers. While these are absolutely great examples of success, entrepreneurship is also an option. Entrepreneurship is certainly not for everyone but for those individuals who are a good fit, accounting entrepreneurship is a wonderful option. In today's video I am discussing entrepreneurship. We will look at what accounting entrepreneurship is, whether it is a good fit, and how to get started.
The time has come, the IRS said. It's officially busy season and this season is expected to be full of excitement given the interesting year we had in 2020. Busy season is a time, in public accounting specifically, when both auditors and tax accountants work extremely long hours (yes longer than the long hours worked outside of busy season). It can be normal to feel burned out, depressed, anxious, frustrated, and other waves of emotion during busy season. It does not have to be the worst time ever, though. This is why I am sharing my tips for surviving busy season.
Thanksgiving is next week. How is that even possible? This year has flown by and has been crazy to say the least. Thankfully the holiday season is upon us. I’m here to remind you not to let up on your studying, though. If you have an exam coming up, studying during the holidays can be hard-but it is so important.
Oh hey accounting students! We are nearing the end of the semester and this is around the time when students have that "come to Jesus" moment. If you have started to realize that you are failing or seriously underperforming in accounting, there may be time to turn it around. I have not failed an accounting course before but I did come very close and ended with a "C". The Accounting department never let me forget that "C" either, but I digress.
Careers in accounting are full of potential and learning opportunities. When I was majoring in accounting, everyone would tell me how much money I would make and how successful I would be. These people were not wrong -- so far, I love working in accounting. There are a few drawbacks , however. Much like any other career field, accounting has its cons.
