Book recommendations on Audible for a young male attorney struggling to get back to living a healthy lifestyle (physically, mentally, spiritually)? Open to any genre.
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
Book recommendations threads! Include title with a brief summary: ‘The Philosopher and the Wolf’ by Mark Rowlands. A book about connections beyond humans. Not just with animals, but the world.

In a rapidly growing practice, and perhaps 2 years from (non-equity) “partnership”. I like my team and the work I do, but I’ve only ever been a consultant and am tempted to jump to industry to try it out. Interviewing for a Fortune 20 company and applying to others. Maybe FAANG. Let’s say I’m 60% driven by comp, 40% driven by impact. Am I crazy for looking to leave? Should I just continue to ride this one-way train?

Big 4 FDD Partner added me on linkedin and asked if I would like to meet for coffee to learn about their firm. I accepted since I think it's a good networking opportunity but what are some good questions to ask? I'm looking to learn as much about their firm and possibly consider them if they exceed my expectations. Currently S2 at a middle market firm.

If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!

Would an experienced hiring manager or someone who jumped to another consultancy be willing to review my resume and offer advice/ suggestions over a phone call? Prefer someone SM-level & above 🙏
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

If so what is the typical timing? 2-￼ Are modeling tests standard as part of the interview process? 3- How are consultants perceived in the industry? 4- Do large GE firms utilize headhunters?￼￼￼ 5- Do large GE firms have operating roles?

For Mega Backdoor Roth contributions why do most articles/people focus on conversion to Roth IRA vs. Roth 401k? Been doing the former for years but starting to think latter might be easier/cheaper.
