Accounting Entrepreneurs

Hello Fellow GC’ers,

Please take some time from tick-marking your audit evidence to answer my question, and by all means, charge these next 15 minutes to the client. Anyways…
I just started my career in public, and while going through 50 page GAAP checklists seems interesting at the moment, I’m afraid that in a few years I will lose all motivation to continue working 75 hour weeks. With that being said, how can I make use of this auditing experience and turn it into some sort of money making gig without going into private practice? Does anybody have a success story that they can share today?

Thanks!!
