Is that me?… No. Did I film the video?…Nope.

I’ve just always wanted a website with a cool video at the top, and riding a snowbike is one of my goals for this year! Looks fun eh?

This is me

2010

I think this is a good place to start. Before this a lot did happen, such as, I failed and dropped out of a computer science program, I lived in Sacramento for 2 years… But this is the year I majored in accounting simply because I couldn’t decide on what else to do. It’s also the year I learned the zipper on a wetsuit goes on the back…

2011

I left North America for the first time and finally understood how “travelling changes you”. I lived in Ghana for 3 moths focusing on volunteer efforts and assisting in the creation of an NGO. Tell me more…

2012

My first company and attempt at entrepreneurship. A mobile pulled pork set up. Tons of work, long hours and mediocure financial returns. Even though I worked every summer weekend, I realized nothing is more satisfying than doing your own thing.

2013

When I realized startups and entrepreneurship was actually a thing and I had been living under a rock my entire life 🙂 I attended my first “start up weekend”; an event where teams create and pitch a business in one weekend! I probably learned more useful tools and concepts here in 3 days than four years in school. Should you go to a SW? Here is your answer

2014

Startups became the most interesting thing to me. It lead to me winning a trip to Malaysia for GSY (Global Startup Youth), an opportunity with Stanley Park ventures and of course multiple more SW’s…

2015

So, if I love startups so much and “doing my own thing”, why did I graduate and not drop out of school, work for an accounting firm and get my CPA designation? That’s a good question, and there are many reasons. My blogs will explain more. Heres a good one.

2017 AND BEYOND


January 1, 2017 – I just accepted my first job at a local start-up!
Check out: www.snapprojections.com

What’s next? I have no idea; but there is a lot of things I’d like to do and let’s hope I can make it happen.



I’m currently writing a short book!

I’ve spent so much time thinking about and answering the questions below, along with giving advice to others in the program, I thought, if I could sum it all up it has potential to be a great resource to others. Current chapters and topics included so far are:
If school, what school and why
What about entrepreneurship
What other options are there
Management, marketing, accounting, finance…Help!
Why I chose accounting despite liking it the least

Overview of the program
Length, time commitment, difficulty etc.

Things that helped me
Available resources and programs
The three types of accountants
What are some of my options?
Don’t focus on job postings, focus on this instead

The switch from CA to CPA has been quite confusing, there are not a lot of great resources out there. Thanks for sharing your experience.Tim Bennet
