If your team is like ours, they love to be active in the communities your company serves. Any given week our team is involved in various events to promote and assist local nonprofit organizations, it’s truly a passion of ours. Several years ago, we formed the Brixey & Meyer Community Outreach Foundation to put more direction and consistency behind our community involvement activities. The Foundation has been a fantastic success for us at B&M as our entire team has really embraced and energized its mission since day one.
Life for accounting and finance leaders is more stressful than ever as businesses are growing, technology is changing, accounting updates and tax regulations are becoming increasingly complex and demand for top accounting and finance talent is accelerating. In this environment, corporate accounting and finance leaders are often forced to make some hard decisions. Do we place necessary projects on the back burner so we can keep up with our daily tasks?

"Oh, so this is just an entry-level job?" "I guess it's a good way to get your foot in the door." As an administrative professional, I've heard these sayings more times then I like to count, and I use to believe others were right. I used to believe my role was just entry level, that I should look for a way to move out of my role and into a new one quickly, and enjoying what I do must somehow be…wrong. Then I started to wonder, what if I stopped defining my career path as an administrative professional by their logic? What if I decided to own the fact that I'm good at what I do, I enjoy what I do, and I see the value and impact I have on my team? Less than a year ago, I came to this very impactful realization and just in time!
