Have any of you seen people leave PA to go into sales? Looking at SDR roles at tech companies currently. Base salary is about $15k less than what I currently make but the up side is so much higher. PA seems like the perfect setup for me but at the end of the day you can’t sell something you’re not passionate about.

had 2 people I started with in the audit practice do it. 1 lasted 1 year and left for a compliance bank at a bank while the other is still doing sales last we spoke.

Public accounting at the higher level basically is sales. So I’d agree that if not making partner for whatever reason and tired of the technical side, the other option is to try sales elsewhere.

Looking for some advice. I made 150k on GME but then lost 100k in the hype. Despite coming out net positive I feel like an idiot for being where I started after gaining so much. I recognize I broke a lot of my trading rules and I essentially was trading on emotion which lead to my loss. If it matters my portfolio is about 80k and I make about the same in salary. So this was the most money I’ve ever handled or even traded. Advice?
