My Story - C.A. Rekha Joshi
I am Rekha Joshi. Being born and brought up in a small village in Karnataka and with a background of conservative family, it was not possible that time to enroll and follow my dream course CA. After marriage, I was fortunate to get loving mother in law who encouraged me to register for CA ! But for me it was very tough and emotional decision since my daughter was just 3 months old. With family support I registered for CA course… and then the tight rope walking started!!!
Articleship, family responsibilities took away big pie from the study time but this adversity helped me to find out and practice, better study techniques. “Work Smart than work Hard”- this sentence really worked for me. I cleared both inter and final exams in first go and was a chartered accountant even before completing articleship!!
My Teaching Career : After becoming Chartered Accountant I got calls from the companies but my inclination was towards teaching CA students and sharing my success model with them. I started my academy in 1992 . In the very first batch for CA Foundation, out of 23 students 3 students came in the AIR and 18 students cleared. This was a small but very encouraging startup. Soon full-fledged Academy for CA Course emerged and I started teaching Accounts for CA Foundation, Inter and Final. Over the period number of student kept on increasing and I could experience golden period of teaching in a big auditorium for 700 students at a time! Indeed, student’s success made my entire journey very happy and satisfactory.
All these years I confined my coaching activities to PUNE City. Now to reach students all over India and other parts of the world, I have launched Pen drive / google drive courses for CA Final, CA Intermediate and IFRS. I am thankful to students’ community for such a wonderful response. In these peaceful years of my career it gives me tremendous joy in giving online guidance and counseling to CA aspirants..!!
Wishing you all towering success !
