Kristen 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!!
