I have a friend who has like 5-7 years of regional firm audit experience. He would be manager for sure but doesn't have his cpa and doesn't want to get it (I told him to just do it but he’s stubborn). Problem is he's burnt out and wants a decent job working 40-45 hours a week and can focus on his true passion (mma fighting). Can anyone recommend a job/firm he should look at? Preferably a remote position. Maybe any other general advice?

Something in industry would best fit him, but not a startup.

Any particular companies he should look out for?

I hired a start up tech company for the company I currently work for and have for the past 10 years. I love my current company but the money and rate of growth I need isn’t there anymore. I could excel with this tech company, I think I would love it, I know I would rock it. Is it unethical to pursue a position with the tech company?

Not strictly a consulting/exit opportunity question:

Is this some type of scam?
