The amount of time that I spent preparing to fail the CPA exam is truly astonishing. Early on in my CPA journey I gave myself months to prepare for each section so that I could "take my time" with the material and be sure to pass. Rather than use this additional study time to actually study, I did things like create new Pinterest boards and search Beyonce hashtags on Instagram. I found myself going from a relaxed, "I have three months" to a panicked "I have three days."
So if you have been putting off the CPA exam because you work full-time and believe you can't do both-I am your reminder that you can. If anyone knows the anguish of coming home after a long day of debits and credits and listening to a lecture on bonds, it would be. Studying for the CPA exam while working full time can be kind of trash- I am not going to lie. That is why today’s video is all about making the process less painful.
I get it, I get it. It’s homecoming season, football season, cuffing season, and so on. The holidays are just around the corner and you can already imagine the scent of sweet potato pie baking in your family’s kitchen (yes, sweet potato because we only use pumpkins as props where I’m from). If your mind has started to drift and you feel the semester starting to fall apart, allow me to redirect your attention.
