What are some obnoxious things you’re thankful for in these times? For me it’s 2 dishwashers (3 if you count the poolhouse).

Looking for smaller (30-60 person) agencies who are interested in being acquired. We are also this size and are looking to roll up a few agencies. Leads appreciated.

For those who have to perform separations of professionals at your company, do you have any pre-post separation routines? I always make sure to block time, before and after, so I can take some time to take a brief walk for 5 mins or go grab a coffee, so I can decompress. Curious what others do? I’ll admit doing these by video conference during WFH is going to be worse than normal - imagine having your spouse or kids within earshot, or maybe even in the same room, if you got separated....

Working on my CV (not sure consulting is a long term fit for me post mat leave despite increased work from home). Need it to feel “senior” but it’s been a long time since I last updated it. I should drop my GPA and GMAT, right? (Even though they were top notch, sigh). Any other tips to land a C-track position?

What do folks feel is a good enough nest egg to retire on as a partner, say at 60? Realize lots of caveats around this but I have heard $10M as a goal to aim for. Thoughts?

Have always managed my own finances, but after making MD my financial situation has gotten quite a bit more complex. Do you guys use financial advisors? If so - any recommendations on where to find a good one?

What kind of exits to the industry do you target? Eg, Fortune 500, C-1, C-2, C-3 levels? What about for 500-1000 companies? ..

Back to consulting after some years in industry. Ppt skills aren’t what they used to be. Any suggestions on training programs? Frustrated not knowing latest tricks.

What’s your point of view on voluntary early retirement offers? How voluntary are they? Would you take one or not and why?

Partner 🐠, how much is your total take home as a portion of the revenue you bring in? Name of firm- percentages? Heard it’s very high for Alix and AnM?

If you had financial sponsorship from the firm and acceptance into 2 of the top 5 schools would you do an emba (FYI there would be no relief on sales targets / practice p&ls or Billability )?

We are going to be doing some topgrading at my small agency. Letting go about 8 of our 55 team members but will be adding 10-13 immediately when we find them. 3 of them start the week after we have termination planned. Any advice on mechanics and message? Trying to avoid demoralizing the team, and I don’t want to blame COVID because we are doing ok actually

Serious question, how many of you/your firms actively considering finding meaningful ways to give a break to your teams and staff. It seems this is not going to end anytime soon... (CONT)
