Accountant Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Accountant in London:
"Network."
Meet lots of people and keep in touch.

Accountant in London:
"Never stop learning outside of your specialism "
Do not expect accountancy to provide you with anything more than a good standard of living. Essentially your day job will not make you wealthy. If you want to be comfortably off you will need to invest in finding other opportunities to make money outside of your day job. I suggest to try to maximise the possible opportunities that the internet can provide your to create an additional source of income.
