Hi! I can use your input. 🗣🗣I’m revising my eight-week professional coaching program for CPA exam candidates. In the past, I aligned the program around the blackout periods. Now that they are gone, what do you feel would be helpful dates to keep in mind? For example, compliance deadlines (eg create a tax track), score release dates, holiday closures that provide you more time study? TIA! 🙏🏼

The best advice I have is to always take the exam on the last day of the score window so that you’re not waiting a month+ for a score. I never waited more than 2 weeks for a score so I took those 2 weeks to relax and reset / didn’t waste time studying for the next one until I knew I passed.

The program pairs *professional coaching with CPA exam prep. There is no technical content so it’s not like tutoring.
*Professional coaching is a confidential space designed to uncover what is in the way of your optimal performance. It’s not mentoring where someone tells you what to do. It could include identifying what resources you need during the process, such as asking someone to help with meals. But more often it’s helping one to design a realistic study schedule, stay accountable to the plan, and clean up all the negative self talk that one isn’t smart enough.
