I'll help

1. Wayne Spivak, CFO
2. I fell into it when I took a part-time summer job. Also, when I was majoring in Anthropology I realized I'd never make money :)
3. Managerial. I didn't like the concept surrounding public.
4. I work with a lot of start-ups and turnarounds (they both have similar issues) - getting them to the point where they are no longer dysfunctional.
5. I done quite a bit of different types of accounting in different sectors; from public companies to private, non-profit to not making any profit, manufacturing, distribution, service, private equity. Each has it's own enjoyment and disatisfaction.

Hope this helps!
