    How Learning a Personality System Made Me a Better CFO

    As published by Truity on January 6, 2021   At the age of 21, I sat for the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam. Two years later, after completing additional requirements, I became a full-fledged CPA.   The exam is technical, encompassing, and onerous. It spans several days and covers subjects ranging from law to business contracts, from mathematical equations to essays on accounting theory. By design, only 20 percent of the people who sit for the exam pass it on any given cycle. In addition to passing the CPA exam, each state has different professional experience requirements you must complete. And then you need to pass an Ethics exam to…

    The Nine Keys Introduction (a sneak preview)

    Για Ελληνικά, πηγαίνετε εδώ Introduction: When I was 23 years old, I moved from Los Angeles, California to Boston, Massachusetts to be part a new East Coast office for the CPA firm I was working for at the time. Shortly after arriving, I started dating an attractive Boston chef. He was charming, affectionate and attentive and since we met as housemates, we were always together. And then, about 7 months into our relationship, I learned he was stealing money from me. He would forge checks from my checkbook and then steal my bank statements so I wouldn’t understand what was happening.   On the day it all came to light,…

    The Tender Marine (excerpt from The Nine Keys)

      This is an excerpt from “The Nine Keys” Photocredit: Josh Christophersen Sydney, Peacemaker (9) in a 2-year relationship with Richard, Leader (8) “I value Richard’s strength and decisiveness, and the fact that we share great conversation, a sense of humor and much laughter together. He is fiercely and uncompromisingly principled, and I can count on him to do the right thing. He came from a very painful childhood in which even his basic survival was threatened, but he came out not only strong and independent, but also surprisingly tender at times. His tenderness is made all the more sweet because it is occasional and not smothering. He is a…

    Kundalini Yoga as the Key to Unlocking the Power of the Enneagram

    I became a Kundalini Yoga teacher as the unintended consequence of a relationship breakup. I first started taking Kundalini Yoga classes to get through that difficult period and a year later, I enrolled in Kundalini Yoga teacher training “just to learn more.” That was 9 years ago, and I’ve since changed my life completely, moving from San Francisco, California to Athens, Greece and trading a 20+ year career as a CPA and finance consultant to teach a combination of Kundalini Yoga and the Enneagram. Along the way, I’ve become more and more convinced that Kundalini Yoga is the key to unlock the true power of the Enneagram. I’ve also become…

    Enneagram Compatibility in Relationships–What Types Go Well Together

      Enneagram Compatibility: The Theory   After people learn their own Enneagram type, the next question I invariably get asked is “what types go well together?” or “who should I be with?” Everyone wants to know. The answer is that all type combinations can be happy together if both partners have high levels of self-awareness. And the reverse is true. All combinations may struggle if both people have a lack of self-awareness. Enneagram compatibility is more about similar levels self-awareness than it is about personality type. The basic guidelines are: Two highly self-aware people have the best chance of success. Two highly unaware people may be able to continue in…
