Please welcome Veronica to the Gleim Blog! Veronica is working full-time at a CPA firm and is sitting for the CPA Exam.
I am one week away from trying out this CPA exam thing. The amount of anxiety and self doubt that has gone through my mind is incredible. Even more confusing and frustrating is the positivity and excitement of the “what if” that blends together with it. It’s like I don’t know whether I am coming or going. Envisioning the letters CPA after my name create such a cool “what if” moment, and I get so excited that I feel like I can do this and take over the Accounting world.
