It’s just been a day for witty comments.
I was talking to an entrepreneur who runs her own accounting practice, and the conversation turned to the future of her business. I asked her if she was working toward selling her business eventually, and she said she’s working on her succession plan every day. She is trying to convince her school-age children that being a CA is the coolest job possible.
But one of her daughters said she had no interest in running the business. “I want a job where I can get to see my children more often,” she said.
Ouch. Talk about a wake-up call.
