What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year? I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4).

Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.
Happy new year! Here’s to another year of travel and starting fresh to obtaining your airline status for 2019!!!
