If you ever wondered what it looks like after you get the results back from a CPA exam...look no further! I have posted them below.
After learning more about the CPA exam, I'm not too upset that I didn't pass this section. Many people have trouble with BEC. Besides...coming from someone who could barely read in the 7th grade, I've come a long way.
I was at a party at my friend's house and there was an older gentleman who owned a CPA firm for 25 years. He said he has 11 employees, and enjoys the work. He asked me if I knew what CPA stood for. I told him Certified Public Accountant...he said, "Can't Pass Again."
I read somewhere that less than 20% of all candidates pass all 4 sections on the first time. Well, I already knew that I wasn't in the top 20% academically. So, it was inevitable that I would fail at least one section if not more. Failing a test is kinda like getting rejected for a date. If you ask out enough people, and aren't afraid of rejection...eventually someone will say yes.
When I was younger my friend Braden and I would go to King's Island during summer breaks. We would always see some hot girl with a less than attractive guy. Braden would ask...how did he get to go out with that hot girl? I told him...probably because he was the only person not afraid to ask her out. Hot girls can be intimidating to many guys. I remember a few years ago, an attractive co-worker of mine told me she has trouble with guys never asking her out. She said no one ever asks her out. She wasn't unintelligent either. I cannot remember if I told her that guys were probably intimidated by her. She did eventually get married.
If you fear rejection...you'll miss out on some great opportunities. Keep that in mind.
