What advice do you have for new CPAs?
“If you choose to specialize in estate planning and trusts, count on your education taking a lifetime.  Additional education, such as a law degree acquired early, would be very helpful.  Forty hours of continuing professional education a year is just the minimum!  But the wide variety of situations and clients will always be interesting.”
