For work, from 7-8 am it allows me to catch up before the current day’s tasks begin.
The first CPA I worked for was Ray. He offered me the advice of – Work hard to get ahead and accomplish your professional goals, but don’t do it at the expense of your family. Your career is not worth losing your family over.
Playing, watching, and coaching sports with my kids.
I think we all draw from many people who become our “heroes”. The most influential for me, would be my parents. They instilled the core values of hard work and family. Additionally, watching my dad volunteer in the community, gave me a strong drive to personally volunteer and the instill those ideals in my children by requiring them to volunteer.
From my dad, “Never be afraid to help someone who is trying to help themselves.” Always offer a hand-up to someone trying to better themselves.
