CPA’s typically are locked in their offices for the first four months of the year and then hide several weeks after as to regain some brain cells. I admit this is pretty true for me too. After 60 hour work weeks, with intensity and pressure of a time-line breathing down your neck, a brief rest is a necessary part of life.
As the season progressed, I couldn’t help but think of so many wonderful things that I wanted to do. Personally, I thought of vacation spots and time with my kids and husband and the opportunities to reconnect with my friends. Professionally, I thought about how I would connect with my clients more regularly, develop relationships with other business owners and in general, social media.
So, I recognize the fact that I defy all those CPA cliches of being all numbers, scared to connect with people and well to put it nicely, a personality-less bean counter. Everything I listed above were ways I enjoy connecting with people.
Overall, accounting is my profession but I am not a typical accountant!
