In healthcare, been on a few FP&A project. Some of the managers/directors in my group has it, and figured it doesn't hurt to get an extra certification. Taking REG first to get the toughest part out of the way

It's all subjective as to which is the hard parts, but go get 'em!

Yeah but no one says BEC is the hardest...

Good luck! Crush it!

For me definitely REG was harder because my MAcc track was Financial Reporting and not Tax. Good luck OP, and remember you usually do much better than you feel coming out :)

Finally..I’m out of the ad game. Last day is today. Going into something totally different. It wasn’t easy as I always wanted to be in advertising but at the end of the day it wasn’t really suited for me and the whole pandemic (wfh) made me realize how much working at a physical agency office made up most of the allure for me. For those who are trying to get out the game too, I’m wishing the best of luck to you, just know it is possible. For those who love it, keep grinding. Take care.
