What do people leave for? I'm just curious because I'm thinking of taking a pay cut to get out of PA for my mental health. Thinking I need a break from strict hours so I don't think industry will be a good fit either. Anyone have any nontraditional career paths after PA that were super flexible and resulted in a pay bump?

Let me know when you find out!

Start a bookkeeping business. Over time you can actually make tons a money. Go to a local university and get accounting students to work for you. This would be so easy if you got small clients but the damn moonlighting policies are so annoying

I have seen a few folk leave to go get their PhDs in accounting and then teach at colleges. Generally, you get to pick when you teach and get two months off in the summer.

Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...

We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.

Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.
