Was working at BDO before leaving and starting own marketing agency. Looking to get back into PA since funds a bit tight. Anyone left and then came back? Wondering if it's worth it since busy season coming up or stick with the grind of trying to build my agency. Thoughts?

A salary is what an employer pays you to stop you from following your dreams.. or something like that. GL in whatever you decide to do.

They'll probably welcome you with open arms. But ... do you want to go back? Maybe try a different firm?
If you can keep grinding, keep going!
If you can join a firm and work part time and still build your own business, that would be ideal.
There's no easy way, but good luck!

If you've gone at least a year from BDO, you can split a referral bonus when you come back! Come back and stick to your boundaries and you'll be fine. It's like riding a bike.

I went back to PA in January for busy season. I missed the work, clients and people though and was worried about stunted career growth if I missed a season. Depends if you need the money sooner rather than later. DM me for RSM referral 😜

I boomerang’d back after doing my own thing. Coming back gives you financial freedom , but you’re tied back to an organization. I came back to pwc just bc I knew what is expected and easier to get my feet wet going back to industry. Whereas if you start at a new firm there’s added stress of getting back to your grind and being the new guy. Let me know if you need a referral 😇
