PODCAST 1 - I failed the UFE (Uniform Final Examination)! Now What?

Did you fail the UFE?  or have a close friend fail the UFE?

Failing the UFE can be a pretty emotional impact on you or your friend!

In IwanttobeaCA's first podcast, we dig a little bit deeper into this topic.

We have an exclusive interview with our special guest Kayla Switzer.  Kayla Switzer failed the UFE on her first attempt.  At first she was devastated and just wanted to run and hide.  It felt like she was alone and had no one to turn to when all her friends and coworkers passed on their first attempt.

However, she was undeterred and determined to succeed again the second time around.  She sought out resources and reached out to as much people as possible who could help her pass the second time around.  She went through a one year journey to redeem herself and..... she did indeed pass the UFE the second time around.

Today she is a successful CA who has worked as a controller for a real estate firm, started her own business venture, counsels experienced UFE writers and is also a successful mother expecting her second child!

IwanttobeaCA would like to thank Kayla, and you can reach out to Kayla on her website:
