Okay finance lawyers. I don't understand this issue. Client says books show we're highly profitable but we have no way to pay our tax liability.... Well where the hell did tbe money go ?

Can the hybrid model actually work?
People have gotten so used to just backing meetings up into each other. You logout of one and immediately jump in to another. I remember days full of meetings before but not at this volume.
I struggle believing this practice will cease with any percentage of the workforce at home. I don't subscribe to all or nothing but I'm interested in if this has been addressed. Has anyone's hybrid policy mentioned the future of meeting best practice?

back biting, dismissive, unkind fellow employees that never even say hello pipe up BLESS YOU whenever they hear a sneeze. WTF is this??
In my second busy season of PA (2 years ago), auditing a specialty finance company that we all quickly came to realize stunk to high hell. We ended up issuing an adverse opinion over a disagreement with the client to book an approx. 100MM write down adjustment to deferred revenue. We walked away with the thought that we had just scratched the surface of their corruption. Fast forward 2 years and low and behold they’re under a 1.2B dollar investigation by the SEC and their CEO is in prison.
Does anyone have subreddits they like to peruse for potential insights? Would love any and all suggestions. Thanks fishies.
Any legitimate side gigs/job opportunities that would be good for someone with an interior design degree? My wife recently got let go because of cost cutting, and she’s looking for a new role. Not set on being in interior design anymore as she’s looking for something flexible/remote and preferably something part time as she plans to assist with my side photography business. Any suggestions would be most helpful!

I am 43, wife 41 amd our HHI is 600K. We have ~3M in NW but much of that is in real estate (~2.2M). Rest in stocks (which has taken a beating recently), some bonds and some cash.
