Speak Up

“Be a voice not an echo.” – Albert Einstein

If you are building a career in the CPA firm world, never hesitate to speak up.

Many new staffers are uncomfortable saying what is on their minds. The firm’s leadership wants to hear your ideas and comments.

I bet you have been in a staff meeting and had an idea or comment. You lean over and tell the person sitting next to you. Then that person raises their hand, states the comment/idea, and gets recognition. This is especially true for females. It has probably happened to many of you, and I know it happened to me.

I have observed that the people who are not afraid of asking “the dumb question” are usually admired more than they realize. I have always appreciated those people because they ask what many others think but are afraid to ask.

Go for it. Speak up.
