If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, Second Life could be a place to set up as a business advisor. It’s a virtual world with some 543,000 members. Sounds weird? It is. But according to Dan Terdiman:
Arlene Ciroula, the chief operating officer of the 100-person Baltimore accounting firm KAWG&F, said she wants to help the people who are breaking new ground with their “Second Life” enterprises, many of whom have never run businesses before.
There’s just three snags. No infrastructure, no rules, payment in make believe money called Linden Dollars – though you could monetize into US$ – if anyone is willing to pay. KAWG&F are the first firm of CPAs to set up shop. Maybe KPMG can offer tax advice while E&Y could offer audit services )
