Real Struggle: Coping with CPA Exam Failure


Kristen Option 2Kristen is a NINJA CPA blogger.

I was recently talking to a coworker, and shared that, although I am not far along in my journey towards sitting for the exam, I am frustrated.

I think that so often when you see a failing result you feel like you are in it alone.

A lot of my colleagues, friends and acquaintances already have the CPA designation — but I didn’t know some of them through their journey to obtain it.

I encourage all of the NINJAs out there to start the discussion with someone who has the designation. There is a struggle for everyone; it just may come in different forms.

One coworker shared that she sat for each section of the exam multiple times before passing. I had a very similar conversation with my mentor; she said she sat for each of the sections multiple times, receiving near-passing grades each time.

It was crushing to her motivation. I am happy to say that both of these ladies now have their CPAs, and successful careers.

Jeff just wrote a great post in May about coping with a failure – hit close to home over here.

As we all know, NINJAs are resilient. Wishing you all luck this month!!
