You probably found this website online, or maybe you saw an ad to come here (or a friend told you to come here), as you keep reading you will not only find out who we are and how we are helping people build sizable residual incomes while working from home part-time to full time but also how we are showing those people how to have more fun, freedom and fulfillment in their lives at the same time while doing it. If this intrigues you, even in the slightest, I invite you to read on… Take a good look at what we are doing… It can change your life! Here’s another thing about being a CPA: Contrary to myths, you don’t have to be a math genius!

Whether it is for graduating law school, finishing the bar exam, or passing the bar exam and getting licensed, there are lots of reasons to celebrate. The first week on the job is typically spent in orientation, which is usually done at the headquarters in Mountain View. I blogged about my first week at Google a while back – it is pretty intense, and there is a huge amount to learn. I found it to be super fun (though exhausting) and have great memories of that week. You get your badge, your laptop, your first five or six items of Google schwag, try to figure out where to get lunch, how the videoconference system works, and how to get started on programming in our insanely complex environment.
