it turns out the consulting firm was already implementing my business plan

Engineers and doctors are probably more useful people than finance people and accountants...if we had to start over after a black death or a nuke disaster

 

A truer word was never said. :nodding: 

Of course, without engineers (and physicists, I suppose) those nukes don't exist and can't hit their targets.

My apologies to my father inlaw, but nuclear scientists won't be very useful after a catastrophic event.

My mother does all my taxes, estate planning, etc. She's the only person I would trust with the daily management of estate business. Anyone else, I'd have to audit to make sure things were being handled correctly.

I can understand that. Some people do very well with those kinds of relationships. For my part I am a demanding bastard of a perfectionist and I'd rather my family not have to deal with that side of me. :D

My relationship with my Mother has been honed over 36 years of bad and demanding behavior. Now that I'm a parent, I truly understand...

I hate it when people assume you are <fill in the blank> just based on them finding out what your profession is.

 

Me: "I am a CPA"

Someone: "Oh! Can you do my taxes? :lol:" <------------(He's really asking can you file my tax return)

Me: "I don't work in tax."

Someone: "Well, I bet you have to dot every i's and cross every t's."

Me: "What makes you say that?"

Someone: "Because you're an accountant."

Me: ":censored:"

I know the feeling. It gets old having to tell everyone I meet that I'm not, in fact, a male model.

I let the family office handle such affairs. Doesn't everyone?

The return on investment for lots of MBAs are not really great, even top 10 schools. 2 years of foregone salary (let's say $200k total)+ $150k-$200k in costs =~$350k for a median salary of around $125k, in what will most likely be a high cost of living city.

It'll take you a very long time to break even.

It gets old for me too. I have to tell all my coworkers that I am not the other Asian employee at this company.

My coworker got his MBA from Columbia. Worked at wallst for 2 years or so. We're around the same age. I make more dough. I have no student loan. I do have a K.W.

An MBA, from what I've seen, is both fun (it seems) and easy (I know). It's a two year vacation from working that allows you to go to a better job when you return (unless you're terrible or went to a terrible school).

Though to be fair, if you want to be a CPA now, a masters is now required (I think as of 2 years ago).

 

(Which will further depreciate the value of a masters)

The M.Acc degree is a money maker for business schools - I'm sure they had something to do with that.

I guess it makes sense from an American perspective. In the civilised world we get upwards of 30 days holiday every year, so you don't really need a $350k holiday.
