Hey peeps was in college yesturday and i bumped in to one of my old tutors from years back who i might say was one of the most insperational tutors id ever had and it got me thinking:

Who would you say inspired you? your muse? or what made you turn towards accountancy in the first place?

    After running my own businesses for years, I went to work for my accountant, and it was the fact that I could not get my head around DR's & CR's, even after doing my own bookkeeping for years...that made me want to take AAT, so you could say it was not wanting to let something get the better of me.

    I fell into accountancy by accident, I had drifted about doing office work since I left school and I ended up at a place where I had to do everything and I suddenly realised I rather liked the accounting aspects of the job more than the rest.

    I don't know who inspires me professionally, my children motivate me to keep going and improve. I also find that now I am doing a job I love I am a much happier person in myself, so I suppose that keeps me motivated too.

    I've only been working in (financial) accounts for five years having been made redundant from several manufacturing companies prior to that. My skills before that were varied but included some costing/production planning roles, retail management, working in a builders yard and being a bookmaker!

    I got into accounts to learn some kind of lasting trade that would help me through the bad times should I lose my job again since the skills are easily transferrable. I also have a good understanding of various functions within industry which helps with manufacturing accounts though I now work in the service sector.

    My primary motivation was to earn more money to provide a better future for my children

    My better half pushed me to where I am today - if it weren't for her i'd still be happy bumming alng pushing trolleys at ASDA doing another college course. Ulimately, i wanted to fall into IT, but having worked in a finance related role now for 5 years, I feel finance is my home - infact, I have found use for my IT skills within the finance department and have implemented a real time saving piece of IT literature which has saved a awful lot of time (and money).

    So my inspiration? .. has to be my gorgeous finacee

    I don't think I've ever been inspired in my life. What does it feel like? :tongue_smilie:

    I never wanted to be an accountant, but I hated college and decided I wanted a job so me and my partner could settle down, and this was the only job I could think of with prospects that you could start with only GCSE's. So here I am! I inspired myself!
