Upon graduating from the PPA Program, I knew I wanted to own my own accounting firm. But, it was hard to turn down multiple offers from the Big 4 accounting firms. I decided I should give Big 4 a shot, if for no other reason than to prove to myself what I already knew. I accepted a job with Ernst & Young. It didn’t take long. Two years later I began a conversation with a KPMG partner that had just left to start his own firm. Six months later in early 2006 we joined forces. I was 25; he was 50. I was an employee; he was the boss. But he knew what I wanted. We had one administrative assistant and one other CPA helping us. 5 years later, I was a partner, and the firm had added three associates. Another five years later, my partner retired at age 60, and our headcount is now 21 strong.
