NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. My brother visited last weekend. He told me he had just passed another certification for his line of work. Then he asked why I haven’t passed any of my exams yet. My initial response wasn’t so nice because, let’s face it, I’m frustrated that I haven’t as well. I wanted to finish this exam before the new test took over. Goodness, there have been many times over the past few years that I have started out for this exam and just haven’t gotten anywhere. Learning the word “No,” and learning how to put what I want first has been a challenge. He did get me thinking what to do differently. I’m more organized this go around, but the frustration from the past has been creeping up on me. It’s time to let it all go, move forward and kick this exam’s butt! I told my husband last

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. In my last post, I discussed organization. Being more organized for 2017 includes: a better chore chart for the kids a poster with bedtime routine (I have a 3-year-old who this helps A LOT) a monthly wall dry-erase calendar my handy, dandy planner. Between my husband’s work schedule and my daughter’s new study schedule, these items are excellent tools in making sure everything is done so I can study. I started implementing most of this at the end of 2016, so it was great for the last month with the busyness of the holiday season. Now that I  help monitor my daughter’s schedule, I have created a new study routine of my own. I’m in study mode as soon as I get the kids to bed. After all, I’ve already helped her study earlier in the evening. When my husband is home, he takes over bedtime and I get more time to

NINJA CPA Review

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. How has this year flown by? I mean, 2017 already? I feel like we were just entering 2016. I had a lot of goals for 2016, but it’s been a hard year and I didn’t accomplish many of them. I have higher hopes for 2017. Everyone around me is talking resolutions. I’m just talking about getting organized and having GOALS. No resolutions, just goals. There are things I want to change and accomplish, but it’s going to take being much more organized and focused to get them accomplished. I’m starting the year off with REG. I’ve been going over the books, but need to dive headfirst into the . Unfortunately, my husband’s schedule has changed and he works late a few nights so more is put on me now with the kids and homework, bedtime, etc. To battle all of this, I bought myself

Christina is a NINJA CPA blogger. The holidays are here, whether we like it or not. That tends to mean a huge distraction for us that are studying for the CPA exam. I had planned on taking REG on Dec. 8th. My husband was behind me and ready to take more on at home, until I was scheduled for 6 full days of meetings at work and extra projects all due in November. We discussed it and decided that it would behoove me to change the test date to the first weekend of January because with the days off due to the holidays, I can take extra time to study. That will allow me to take a second exam at the end of Q1 testing period before the changes in the exam. The fact that we decided on the test date together makes me feel I will have more backup
