How did your accounting course in high school help launch your career?

Accounting in high school helped lay the foundation for my business understanding and solidify my passion for accounting.  By having some knowledge before college, I was able to learn more about other business topics causing me to be ahead of my peers.  Additionally, I was able to achieve high grades in the earlier accounting courses due to the high school course.
