In the Zone: Motivated and Ready for BEC

13 Jun 2013


Mark is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

It has been a few weeks since my last post and a lot has happened since then. I was offered a new job that was a nice pay raise and step up in my accounting career.

After I accepted and put my two weeks in, I was approached by a friend of mine to come run his business. He is a doctor who invented some products but needed help getting everything going.

It was a tricky situation but after a lot of thought I figured it was worth the risk to work for the startup business, coming in at the beginning.

Because of all this I pushed my BEC test back from May to the first week of July. It took me a couple weeks to get use to the new job but now everything is going great. I have been working a lot, but also able to study more and my schedule is a lot more flexible.

I have one module left to go with the videos, and then it is on to multiple choice and writing the NINJA Notes over and over. I really feel like I am getting in the studying zone and hope it can last.

The material is also helping me with some of the same stuff I am currently working on so that is pretty neat. I have had problems in the past staying focused but right now I am totally into it. It is a Saturday night and I am home watching lecture videos, not going out and not even watching the NBA championship game.

I know if I can keep this up I will be able to take down BEC and move on to REG to finish up and finally be done.

My wife also finished up her Master’s degree for special education teaching and was offered the job she wanted at the school she wanted. It will finally be nice to have two incomes coming in.

Well I have to get back to my lectures, need to finish the night strong and start early tomorrow.

Good luck to everyone getting their scores back.
