This year, we asked the Top 100 People whether it was possible for the accounting profession to engage in so many specialty services that it would lose its identity as a single profession. The resounding answer was, "No!" - though a few had their doubts.It's been said that people on the average have nine careers over the course of their lifetime. You can be a CPA and still have those nine careers. That, I think, is the beauty of our profession.
