Mindy Mejia, an experienced accounting professional, recently-certified CPA, and a full-time author now with 4 (!) books published, joined us for this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast. Mindy’s journey was different than most of our guests on the program. She started as a Liberal Arts major actually, and then worked her way into accounting through her employment at the time. She stayed with the same employer for 15 years, continually getting bigger and better opportunities there until she became their Global Credit Manager. It was also during this time that she decided to work on becoming an author. She successfully published her first book through a small publishing house, but it was her second book that gained mass popularity. By then she had obtained a literary agent, and was even able to auction the publishing rights to that second book. It ended up being published in 20 languages! Her fourth book has just now been published, and she continues to work as a professional author. However, she does still use her accounting knowledge in service of her new profession. She helps other authors with tax issues and now even prepares tax returns seasonally as a way to diversify her work. She sounds like she truly enjoys what she does.
