They lost a significant part of their contract for these medical hearings in about May 2015.
I quit the job in August 2015.
The two women who owned the company stepped down in July 2016.
They were replaced that same month by three new women (two of whom I know and worked at that company).
In June 2017, the company was bought by an Australian company.
That was good timing on my part. I've made great decisions throughout my career. Every time I've changed a job, I've made significantly more money. Lao-Tzu described a sage as somebody who never misses the timing. He was right.
A sage knows which way the winds are blowing and reacts accordingly.
I'm going to keep doing this job until it no longer exists. I'd imagine that this will be within the year.
Then I think it will be time to go back to the US and really kick it up a notch. Make some of that big time scratch found in the Land of Opportunity. $100,000/year, not unrealistic. I just have to pass this test to get into some organisation. If I can do that, it's a license to print money.
"What about all of that money that you owe in the US?"
At this point, they'll probably accept pennies on the dollar. I'm in the UK, after all. They can't do shit. I can offer to pay before I leave.
"What about 15 years of not filing taxes?"
The IRS are broke. They don't have money to go after anyone. Particularly, people who don't even own any taxes. Yes, you're supposed to file taxes no matter where on earth you're living (which is absurd) but I don't actually owe any money. I just didn't file the taxes. I've paid all of my UK taxes, of course.
"What about your ladyfriend?"
If she wasn't even willing to move to Scotland, she's not going to move to the US. And besides, when you're making $100,000/year, finding a new ladyfriend is remarkably easy.
