“Hi younger self – heads up. Don’t spend all of that time watching television. In the future, we have Netflix and Hulu where you can binge a whole season in a few nights on a mobile phone! So go out and have fun and enjoy life.” – Ernie Sadashige, CPA for 13 years 


“Believe in yourself, trust the system, and keep moving forward.” – Claudell Bradby, CPA for 19 years


“Start saving earlier in life, compounded interest in retirement savings is unreal. Believe in yourself and don’t let other people hold you down.” – Dave Shultz, CPA for 26 years


“Follow your dreams and pursue your passion, younger self. When we were young, we were told to settle down and specialize. But the different roads we took eventually came together. You can’t predict the future. The best way to prepare for tomorrow is to chase what life has to offer today. Then one day you’ll wake up and see the twisty path you took was actually a spiral to bring you to your true core self.” – Ernie Sadashige, CPA for 13 years 


“First: A soon as you can, contribute to a 401K. Second, remember to enjoy life and have fun but don’t forget there may be consequences. And third, I should have started working for TurboTax sooner.” Miguel Burgos, CPA for 6 years
