Big 4 Bound

I would be selfish if I did not direct some of IwanttobeaCA’s readers to
another great accounting blog.

If you have not checked out Big4Bound, I highly recommend you to do so.

They have recently started a forum and I feel will soon become a great source of info.

Here is a direct quote from their most recent post

“Usually Canadian students rely on the Careers section of, but I wanted to see if we could make a better option.”

This is 100% true. LOL. Actually, IwanttobeaCA was started because I was reading so many CA discussions on RFD, and didn’t find a central source to vent. I bet a majority of our readers are from RFD. RFD is an awesome site by the way.

I have been guilty of not posting on other great CA accounting blogs, as they have done so kindly on mine. My biggest apologies, and I promise to do that more.

I also have been guilty of not posting enough!

Here are the things that have been keeping me busy:

1) Ever since passing CFA Level 1, I have been increasingly interested in the finance world. My stock portfolio had a staggering 33% drop last year. However this year with a bit of day trading, I am happy to recover 25% of its value. One of my greatest stock picks made a 300% return in less than a month, and a net $2000.

2) I’m scared to post. Actually, the truth is I have been hitting some writers block. With more and more readers, and blog writers on IwanttobeaCA, I feel increasingly pressured to write better blog posts. I start a blog post, and then I don’t think it matches the quality readers expect, so I start another one instead. This is writers block that I must overcome.

3) I have been busy with other projects. My entrepreneurial side of me has me looking in lots of other projects. One of them is opening a desert shop on Yonge street. Another is taking on other website projects, and monetizing them. Another revolves around several business contacts in China.

So I have been busy, but nevertheless I am here. You can expect more great things from the blog! Go visit Big4Bound if you have not done so yet.


  1. Thanks! Hopefully we can get some traffic and get some good discussions going.

    I know what you mean by writers block. After my first 3 or 4 posts, I was scared to write - I can only imagine your situation.

    At the end of the day, I try to put good content out there. Some of it might be really good, other just good/average, but I think its hard for us to put out quality content every single time.

  2. I am excited though, since I am a fanatic about
    having clean, white teeth, and this brush does it naturally.
    While manual toothbrushes are still popular nowadays, some people have already been upgrading to electric toothbrushes.

    The other thing I find annoying is the lack of a counter stand to
    hold the electric toothbrush.

  3. It was an aerosol can of either Barbasol or Colgate.
    Problem is now solved Braun Series 7, which uses pulse
    technology (sending the 10,000 micro-vibrations to
    shave her head every minute, lifting unruly hair), Gillette Blade Technology (provides accurate high speed),
    as well as a significant turn your head (the entrance of the slide
    by double contours different Braun Shavers angle). That is the confession of a panasonic electric razors
