I was a nurse for years and then one day, I found myself accepting my father’s proposal to join his accounting firm. I knew nothing about tax preparation or accounting! I had been that person that just signs on the line the tax preparer points to. None of it made any sense to me in any way. But, the love of my father and his desire to have me near him as he grows older made me rethink my whole position on the numbers profession.
He told me that if I would join him, he would give me his practice when he retires. So I launched into the proposal with my whole soul. I knew that I needed to have certificates and diplomas on the walls of my office, just like he does. So I went from the simple to the complex. I took basic tax preparation classes with H & R Block. I started liking the whole tax prep business, or was it really the tax preparation program that I liked? I have not solved that question yet!
I know I have learned because now the questions I ask usually have to be sent to a higher department.
So on I go to Gleim to prepare for the new federally imposed test. I am not afraid, but rather look forward to it and am thoroughly enjoying the Gleim process of learning.
