What are everyone's new year resolutions? Mine are modest. Read 1 book a month and save an extra $200 a month.
Friday Life lesson: "If something costs $1,000 and it is on sale for $750 and you decided to buy it, you didn't save $250. You spent $750."
have two offers to move from consulting to industry. Currently an associate, offers for Manager & Analyst.If thinking long term about B-school, would the Manager role be significicantbetter on paper?
Huge moment of happiness today. Talked to my project about moving to Toronto, explained that as a minority I don't feel safe in the US. The cost for me to fly in every week is actually cheaper.

It’s officially Christmas season, what are the most 🙊😱 🙈you have seen at your firm Christmas party??
