I hope you enjoyed Ty’s story as much as I did. It was interesting to read a story that is essentially about me, and to see the same events through another person’s eyes.

Life as a CPA (7): Demo Hopping

– Ty’s Summer Internship – Day 15 – Even though I was in IT consulting for some years, I didn’t know much about business applications targeted for the mid- to small-size companies.

In my Reigniting blog post, I mentioned that being a CPA is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle.  One of the things that I like about the profession is that is provides us (CPAs) with a ton of opportunities—not just in the type of jobs and organizations that we can work in, but in … Continue reading
