  • Just got my check for $500, Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can make taking paid surveys online... So I took a video of myself actually getting paid $500 for paid surveys to finally set the record straight. I'm not going to leave this video up for long, so check it out now before I take it down! ●●● https://tinyurl.com/realmoneystreams2019

  • Bill - what an inspiring presentation! I loved your insights about the 'Epoch Adventure' from the gaming world. Great clips from Ted Talks that show gaming is the future of education, even for CPAs. Loved Jane McGinigal & Claus Nehmzow. Also great CPA examples from E&Y Inventory School; Dr. Kraten and Suffolk University accounting students, Dr. Steven Hornik at UCF, and our own experience running CPE on CPA Island. Great work!
