Reflections on Expectations

Originally posted on my LinkedIn on May 24, 2019.

8 years ago, when I got my CPA at 23, I thought this would be the last exam I would ever write. There are tons of CFOs out there with just that so that would be all I need for my career.

2 years later, when I got my MBA at 25, I thought that would be the last exam I would ever write. I now have a more well-rounded business education outside of Finance and Accounting.

3 years later, when I became a Certified Salesforce Platform Developer at 28, I thought that would be the last exam I would ever write. I certainly wouldn’t still be writing exams into my 30s. I can now show that I can do everything required in Finance Operations for medium to large enterprise companies.

3 years later, today, I became a Certified Salesforce CPQ Specialist at 31. I no longer presume to know what skills I’ll need to tackle the problems of the future. What I do know is that whatever is ahead, I’m ready.
