    Do you remember how you first learned to tie your shoes? Your parents probably made a game of it. Cross the strings and over the top, then pull the ends and tighten them up! You can make a game out of just about anything. Believe it or not, you can even make a game of learning about accounting standards and audit practices—various educational games about the profession are now available for college credit and included in CPE courses.Two years ago, for instance, I won the Innovation in Teaching Award at the 17th Annual Symposium on Ethics Research in Accounting for creating a live, multi-player online video game entitled “Audit Experience!” (See above for a screen shot.) Situated on the Second Life virtual world platform, the game challenges professional audit staff to investigate the disappearance of organically grown grain at a flour mill during a year-end inventory count.

But, for the most part, finding the best mentor is really just a matter of being proactive. Here are some tips for getting started from Entrepreneur:

  • Ready for Your Close-up? Get Set to Make Your TV or Radio Debut

    What do local TV stations and newspapers, national business and finance magazines, websites like CNN Money and Yahoo Finance, and trade outlets like the CPA Practice Advisor and Accounting Today all have in common? They regularly seek out NYSSCPA members to serve as experts for their stories. In the past year, there have been hundreds of media opportunities for CPAs just like you to deliver the Society’s and profession’s message about tax planning, the Affordable Care Act, tax inversions, DOMA, audit quality, non-profit governance and estate planning, among other topics.  But do you know how to distinguish between the topic matter and the topic message?
