Introducing NINJA CPA Blogger Rollie

blog imageRollie is a new NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello! My name is Rollie and I am a graduate of Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. Since graduating in 2011, I worked a few different jobs before landing my position as a staff accountant for the Good Samaritan Society at their National Campus.

I primarily focus on the accuracy of the financial statements for 16 individual Good Samaritan nursing homes in Kansas. I enjoy my job, but I want to keep moving forward in my career and pass the CPA exam!

I have one attempt for REG, AUD and FAR; all three of them were colossal failures. So I took 8 months off, got married and adjusted to my new married life (this was a huge change for me). Beginning in second week of March, I started studying again, but this time was different.

This time I am using the NINJA method. I am currently watching lecture videos and hoping to start “NON-STOP MCQs” by early next week. My second attempt at REG is on May 17th. I am also dedicating more time to studying and less time to distracting myself with Facebook, CandyCrush, etc.

No more watching the early morning news before work and no more evening beer right after work. It is time to focus. Not only do I need to focus to pass, but I need to focus so I can devote more of my time to my wife while engaging in plentiful studying. I do not want to sacrifice my quality time or sleep to just waste my time with timewasters.

I will pass this time!
