Life is a journey, the paths we choose to take will constantly be scrutinised, however, one must always remember that the journey is ours and ours alone.
In the end, the outcome is what we make it, so we must be sure to make it a good one.
I can honestly say that when I was asked during high school what career path I wanted to take, the only thing I was sure of was that it was not going to be accounting. Well, that certainly changed, after completing my business administration studies I found myself working in an accounting firm. I still said to myself that this was not where I wanted to be, however, the passion my colleagues showed for helping clients was infectious. I found the accounting industry became more interesting the longer I worked within it.
After a job change and more responsibilities taken on, I have found that this area is after all a good fit for me. I love to be able to help client's sort out pressing issues with the Tax Office and other departments as well as clarify tax matters that seem like another language to them. The problems that can arise offer only more of a challenge, but once overcome are very rewarding when I can see the results received by the clients.
Overall I would say that my journey is only just beginning, however, it is definitely looking to be a very good one.
