TL;DR: Team Member Lisa

Today we want to introduce Lisa, a Tax and Accounting Specialist, that has joined our team!

Why did you decide to become an accountant?  

I’ve always loved math. You can get to an answer using a set of rules. Accounting is very similar. Since the rules are always changing, there are always new things to learn which keeps it interesting. My intention was to be a doctor, but I fell in love with economics in college. My professor suggested I try auditing, and the rest is history.

When were you hired for TL;DR?  

July 2022!

What made you decide to want to work for TL;DR?  

The corporate culture here is amazing.

What do you enjoy most about TL;DR?

The flexibility to be able to take care of my children but still have a fulfilling career.

What is a typical workday like for you? 

It varies, but as long as it starts with coffee I can tackle anything. 

What is your favorite tip for small business owners?  

Track EVERY dollar you spend for your business. And if you don’t know how to do bookkeeping, don’t try. A bookkeeper’s skills pay for themselves!

How do you stay informed about developments and changes in the accounting world?  

Accounting Today and speaking with colleagues. 

What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?  

Personally, taking care of my children and having them be pretty great people. Professionally, restarting my career and ending up here 🙂

What do you do outside of work?  

I love to bake and use my Cricut all while I watch Hallmark Christmas movies any time of the year. In the spring I’m a full-time competition dance mom and I love every minute of it. 

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?  

Lorelai Gilmore. She was independent, a smart businesswoman, a great mom, and her wardrobe was amazing. 

Do you have any advice for those interested in entering the accounting field? 

The options are endless. If you don’t like one area, there are countless others. It offers a flexibility that many other careers don’t. But remember your journal entries: They come back!

We welcome Lisa to the TL;DR: Accounting team!
