No advice to offer, just want to say congratulations OP. I have a loong way to go. If I ever get it, there are so many things I want to try - 3D printed artsy things on Etsy, dropshipping, rental properties, creating udemy courses, teach guitar to kids, heck even a YouTube channel. :/

Everything I mentioned generates active income which is prohibited on H1B. Rental properties can be done as long as you use a rent manager, but that eats into your cash flow. If you manage your rental properties yourself, it counts as active income too.

A friend of mine did the same. But she waited six months post GC to take the course and gain licensure. I forget why (the wait) though.

Got it.

If you don’t mind me asking how long did the GC take I am also at kpmg and just submitted the medical back to USCIS

You know what guys, I’m just gonna say it. Big 4 Accounting firms are a damn joke.
