I’m having the hardest time being happy for my friends. I’m grateful for everything that I have but I can’t help but feel a sting when friends get into new relationships, find new jobs, etc. Those are things I’m working towards, and want so badly! I just haven’t made as much progress as I’d like- things eventually balance out right? I’m trying to remind myself it won’t feel like this forever
I’ve only been a vet assistant for 3 months and I am so overwhelmed. It’s so stressful! Does dealing with the pace get easier?

Hey everyone! Question on how you manage concious spending plans: do you have separate checking accounts for going out, groceries, etc. if so how do you handle credit cards? Do you subtract the money for each category account when you pay a credit card bill? Seems so complex. Is there anyway to simplify (note: we are a couple with joint accounts)
My thoughts on Joe's email -
New labour code was supposed to be effective from oct 1, though this date might get pushed by 3 or 6 months. One major change in code was to have 50% basic of overall ctc. This will increase the pf contri and decrease the take home pay.
Most probably, salary structure will be changed in D in the dec cycle stated by Joe U. Actual salary may or may not increase for everyone, lets see 🤔

Is it just me or does Canada have the worst requirements for CPA? Everywhere else its 4 or 5 exams. Here you have to go through 4 exams of CPA PEP and then two capstones to just qualify for the 3 day CFE exam. And then on top of all that, the salaries are so bad for Accountants here. Is it even worth it?
What’s been really sad / frustrating for me is now having more insight in the engagement budget process, realizing that stuff that myself and other staff / seniors got chastised or gotten pushback on (spending a little over budgeted time when trying your best, expensing an Uber home when it’s late, etc.) really don’t make a large impact at all yet we’re made to feel terrible for, & it’s almost entirely from an executive spending extra time that results in an engagement not making margin goals…
New to Fishbowl?
unlock all discussions on Fishbowl.
I write literally everything. Then I almost never read them. I write post it’s of the points I want to make so I don’t forget and don’t feel the need to interrupt.
I do the same!
Prepare and understand the topics for the meeting. Then confirm your understanding throughout the meeting. Write only the new stuff you didn’t know or stuff that contradicted what you initially thought. Don’t write everything down.
Record that ish
Recording is helpful. I had a partner that recorded a call once. So glad she did because I forgot to. She didn’t want to email the file for obvious reasons so we just air dropped it later. So helpful.
Two different approaches: type as they speak and then clean up the notes after the meeting or paraphrase after main points are discussed.
Type as they speak and then organize notes
If you missed something, try to rephrase with a question to get clarification. At the end of the meeting, recap with main points and confirm any action items.
My issue is I get distracted with other work or pings in the middle of meetings and then lose parts of what ppl say
People on the call pinging me with side comments is the worst!
If possible, bring an intern or associate who can type fast to the meeting so you can focus entirely on engaging and listening. If you are an associate or intern, you probably aren’t the one doing most of the talking anyway.
We had an intern that was shocked ppl can type fast
I type as they speak and then fluff it up right after meeting. I highlight action items red or bold during discussion to keep them fresh for after call.
Screenshot the closed captions
Going have to type fast. My job as an intern was to transcribe everything said in meetings. Had to type fast as hell.
How did you do it in college?
That explains it
i’ve learned over time not to take everything down verbatim- you miss the conversation and are too busy writing. just jot down key points
My notes are messy.....very messy.
Tell them you are taking notes. Ask for clarifications. Don’t try to speed type and actually miss the conversation.
It takes practice and time
Just type notes as you speak. How fast are they actually talking?
I make a lot of stuff up..,.
Try to not write every single thing said down and focus on higher level topics and decisions/conclusions
