We asked our members recently on Any Answers, what they like most about being an accountant. We picked our top 10 answers from the responses - and here they are.
How about sharing 10 reasons why it's rotten to be an accountant. My son is considering accountancy as a career, this might balance the conversation. But otherwise very enlightening, thanks.
when you give thought to your firm's Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats and suddenly find that 10 or so of the plusses are matched with the same number of minuses, and many with just one heading, eg clients and more/less family time.
airgeadagam - tell your son that, as in most things in life, accountancy is made up of loads of debits & credits but, at the end of the day, they should balance. Rest assured, accountancy is not special, it's what you make it.
I particularly like the picture for point 10.
for most of these you could substitute many other businesses
Its also the best form of contraception there is.
