My name is Ben and I am about to embark on my CPA exam journey and I am excited to share my successes and trials with you along the way.
I have been married for nine years and my wife and I just had our first child this last year. Jackson is now 10 months old and is really becoming a hand full as he is learning to walk and explore everything!
I have been taking the long road to finishing my degree so that I can take my CPA exam and enter the work force as a CPA. I have spent the last 5 years trying to find what I want to do as a career. I have worked in baking, insurance, and investments.
While they all were a great experience, I have decided that my real love is accounting. With this in mind I have been working real hard to finish my degree and I am glad to say that I will be walking at commencement on the 4th of May!
As I approach my graduation date, I am planning on studying about 3 times a week, for roughly 3 hours each day and for about 4 hours on the weekend. Once I finish my degree I will rev up this schedule as I will be able to focus more on my CPA study.
I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with you. Hopefully this will motivate me to stick to my study schedule and help you as well!
