Take chances, conquer fear with passion, and invest in what you believe in (and maybe some Google shares while you're at it).
My designation has provided me with a strong foundation for my career and has allowed me to connect with and support people in all aspects of my life.
I believe that when there is an opportunity and ability to offer service, then it is a privilege to give back.
Our profession is internationally recognized, and the CPA designation opens many doors. It is a stepping stone to a globally diversified set of opportunities.
Having learned my most valuable money lessons while I was young motivates me to help other young people do the same.
Effective leadership is visionary, it lifts people up and helps them see what could be and how we can get there together.
As a volunteer with my chapter, I discovered a community of members who not only provided professional development opportunities and social events but also worked to further unify our membership.
A good business is built on innovation, relevance, and forward-thinking – and a healthy passion for success.
Effective leadership is that which gets strong results with everyone feeling positive that they have contributed to success along the way.
Success in business – and in life – stems from our ability to develop deep, genuine relationships and to communicate in an equally meaningful way.
I believe that as accountants, we have an obligation to hold ourselves to a higher standard and to share our talents.
Effective leadership comes from internal strength and courage, not always from speaking out and being the loudest.
Never become complacent, and embrace change continuously. We are only as good as the next thing we do.
Embrace new opportunities and do the scary things that you aren't comfortable with. You will grow your skills and gain confidence to take on even greater challenges.
Effective leadership is about being curious and interested, not only about the project at hand but also the people who you work with.
Success is more than surpassing key indicators: It’s also about creating opportunities for others to grow and achieve their full potential.
If you express yourself truthfully and with honesty and integrity, you will nurture the respect of others.
Effective leadership is understanding clearly which individuals need to be on the leadership team, understanding how to motivate them, and giving them the resources necessary to excel in their roles.
The ability to listen to and empathize with others makes it easier to find common ground, gain consensus, and fully leverage the energy and wisdom that others have to offer.
As a volunteer with my profession, the more I gave, the more I got back – so I kept looking for opportunities to do more.
Being a mentor is extremely important to me. Given the help and support that has been provided to me, I can’t imagine not doing the same for others.
An effective leader must be able to communicate in a way that inspires others to buy in and commit to a goal or a cause.
I believe we all have a responsibility to contribute to building strong communities. If we were all to volunteer a few hours, think of the impact it could have.
To achieve success in any endeavour, you must go all in with your time, focus, commitment, and effort.
One of my proudest career accomplishments has been working with accounting students – seeing them achieve success in the post-secondary setting and then going on to achieve success in our profession.
