Experience Counts – A Flashback for Friday

“At age 20, we worry about what others think of us. At age 40, we don’t care what they think of us. At age 60, we discover they haven’t been thinking of us at all.” – Ann Landers

My post from March 25, 2015 is actually more of a rant. Something must have happened that week to cause me to share my feelings about the value of longevity, experience, and knowledge possessed by the accountants in your firm who have thirty or more years of experience.

If they started their career after graduating with an accounting degree that would make them around fifty-two years of age. I don’t want a doctor or lawyer who is fresh out of school nor do I want one who is 82! Give me that 50-something person.
