Balancing work + family + studying is easier said than done.
This is why more men and women than ever are utilizing flex time at work to find extra time to study for the CPA exam, take care of the kids or take care of other family activities.
Not only is flex time being used but there has been a shift in men staying home as the women head to the workforce.
As noted by a survey of 2,000 men and women by Working Mother Media, it’s noted that there is a shift in focusing on the family and that 4 in 10 men would be okay with a wife that is the primary bread winner.
In fact PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Accounting firm just published this report on Bread Winning Mom’s that is focusing how these super achieving mother’s are out earning their husbands.
If you (or your husband) is struggling to pass the CPA exam and feel like you are constantly in a “chores war,” utilizing a flex schedule or taking a year off from work is absolutely a viable solution so that you both can focus on growing your family and your careers.
It’s estimated that you will need 100-200 total hours of study time for each section of the CPA exam which means studying for close to 20 hours per week if you are serious about becoming a Certified Public Accountant.
The most important aspect in maximizing your 20 hours of study time per week is to find a CPA Review Course that is going to match your study personality.
