Sometimes we compare ourselves to others. We do this to seem like we are equal but in reality we are all different.
We set our minds on what we want instead of the overall picture and what could be.
With each of us unique, what may be listed on paper might not be as you assumed. Areas may be different, abilities may be different, and our views may be different. You really don’t know until you try.
I made the decision to enter in the Bookkeeping career path even though I have relatively little knowledge about Bookkeeping. My masters is in Forensic Accounting which deals with detecting fraud and I feel like it could be a very advantageous trait that could carry over. Data entry is not my strongest skill but I can do it decently.
After seeing a company on the news, I decided to send them a cover letter. I went in for a QuickBooks assessment and got hired on the spot.
I struggled with the QuickBooks project she gave me but I volunteered to come in the next day to finish it.
Although it is frustrating and I feel like I am failing her expectations, I am trying to give it a fair shot. I intend to learn All that I can with hopes that she trusts me more with someone’s books.
Live and learn all that you can. You might surprise yourself!
