Dr. Adrian Mayse, CPA, Accounting Department Chair at Howard University, and author of the children’s book “When I Grow Up I Want To Be An Accountant” (!) joined us for this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast.

Like many of our guests over the years, this guest was suggested by one of you, the listeners!  When I received the suggestion I was obviously intrigued, but when I looked on Amazon for Adrian’s book and saw the quality, I couldn’t help but ask him to come on the show.

In this episode, we cover Adrian’s early career of course, but then we get into two very informative & fun discussions about 1) what it takes to get your PhD in accounting, and 2) how he decided to and ultimately did publish his book, “When I Grow Up I Want To Be An Accountant”.  In a nutshell, “When I Grow Up I Want To Be An Accountant” is a children’s book focused on teaching young children about the profession of accounting, as well as showing diversity in the profession – both of which are incredibly important.  I truly feel that Adrian has done both the profession and society overall a good deed by putting this book out into the marketplace, and I know it will make many people’s lives better over time.

You can find Adrian’s book at: When I Grow Up I Want To Be... An Accountant: Mayse CPA, Dr. Adrian L., Perryman, Reshonda, Ross, Frank K.: 9798599300236: Amazon.com: Books
