Those years were fun, with assignments in MN, OH, LA, CT, PA, and MD, but during that time, he began to gather tax clients, eventually using his accounting degree more than his respiratory therapy degree. It was then that Daina made him hang up the stethoscope because she could see what was coming next.Joe is driven; his Myers-Briggs personality profile is INTJ, aka “the mastermind,” and it fits him. Knowledge is to be constantly gained, categorized, and utilized. That benefits his clients, in that they know that he constantly has his finger on the pulse of the latest tax issues. He also writes for magazines and blogs, posts on numerous tax forums, and answers dozens of emails every day.Travel is still a big part of his life, but now it is for seminars and consulting contracts with healthcare staffing firms, reviewing their reimbursement policies, and giving recruiters in-services so they understand the tax issues better. He and Daina have almost completed their goal of visiting all 50 states—they are missing just four! For more about Joseph and travel taxes, visit his website.  About the ShowProduced by Jonathan Cary

She took her first travel placement in a North Carolina school district, and her travel was promptly put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Haley extended her contract with the district and could not be happier. The extension has given her the opportunity to build lasting relationships and fall in love with the diverse outdoor opportunities that North Carolina has to offer. She is eager to travel again but believes that her extended time here has taught her a valuable lesson about living in the moment and never just looking to the next contract—you might miss out on some pretty beautiful people and opportunities.Leslie has been working as a physical therapy contractor for over 23 years(!), beginning her career journey in the medical setting before making the transition into schools. While working in medical, Leslie gained experience in outpatient rehab with both adult and pediatric patient populations, skilled nursing, home health, and inpatient rehab. The pair met when Haley began her career at their current school district and both were the only therapists in their disciplines—their friendship blossomed quickly and they’ve been working closely together ever since.  About the ShowContact Us: slpfulldisclosure@gowithadvanced.comWebsite:https://www.advancedtraveltherapy.com/slpfulldisclosure/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gowithadvancedInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/gowithadvanced/Produced by Jonathan Cary
