What you think of these companies that offer to transform your practice, going into ESTATE PLANNING?
Such as American Academy of Estate Planning, or New Law Business Model, or the Elder Law College, etc.
I’ve drafted a few wills and trusts over the years, but have been considering giving more emphasis in this area. Will those companies mostly be helpful only on providing advertisement material and administrative goals, or will they actually help with substantive material/information? Thanks
When you look at all these stupid ideas trying ICO, it definitely feels like dot com bubble 2 is approaching. I still think a bulk of investment is going to more legit ideas, but a lot of alt coins are gaining higher valuations. When do you think we will hit the burst? End of 2018?
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season—we know with difficult family situations, family holidays can be stressful for many LGBTQIA+ folks, so our best wishes and lots of love goes out to all of you here 💕
I'm a traveling teacher that was supposed to move into a room next year. A new teacher was hired and they are giving her the room. I'm also being told to teach an extra class. Feeling unappreciated :(

Are there any Los Angeles paralegals in this bowl with experience in complex trials? I’m looking to share my woes of dealing with a case with more than 10k exhibits that will never see the light of day on trial.
I’m also looking to insight for how you handled providing the court with exhibits admitted. I suppose we will find out at the FSC, but I am posting this to find out in advance.

Hey! I've been chilling in quarantine, in solitude since we went remote. Does anyone want to go on a social-distance date type of thing?
I'm a black 22yr old Corporate papi (aka consultant lol), who likes going on walks, watching movies, and is probably in boxers 97% of the time. Chill guy, good vibes, allergic to cats, very anti-drama, favorite colour is crimson and pineapples do not belong on pizza. Also polyamorous, pansexual & pretty single

I had my egg retrieval this past Saturday and this week I have had the worst lower back pain of my life. Every morning I’ve been waking up extremely tight and have to use a heating pad to loosen up. During the injections my back was hurting a bit, but it’s gotten worse. Have others had this happen? If so, when did it go away?
First time home buyer. At what point in the home buying process do you shop for rates? My realtor asked me to get a preapproval but the finance guy says rate is only valid for a specific property. Do you shop for rates after deciding a property? Wouldn’t that cause delays while putting an offer in?
How do you answer “Tell me about yourself?” Is there a specific format you follow? Examples greatly appreciated! Thank you :)

Accenture fish, what is the % increase from senior analyst (lvl 10) to consultant (lvl 9)? I currently have completed 2 YOE and going on to 3 YOE however I got an offer placing me at senior analyst… I see many people who are going from 2-3 YOE being placed at the consultant role. Should I ask to be placed higher?
I'm so over millennial pink
In another bowl, it was stated that conservatives don’t believe in science, facts, or reality. It still surprises me how misrepresented we are (even though I have seen the media clips that brainwash their viewers). How can we set them straight when they have already been programmed to tune us out?
Been single for a long time and every once in a while I think it would be nice to be in a relationship. Until I see the issues that couples deal with. Then, I'm like, nah I'm aight.
A group of teachers (in and out of CCS) and I, talk regularly about our highs and lows and our joys and frustrations of teaching. I want to invite more teachers to these chats. Please join me for our first, of hopefully many, official meet ups to discuss SELF CARE. Is Self Care part of your routine? Are you in need of some quick ways to take better care of yourself? Either way, come join the convo!
