Book recommendation - "Ride of a lifetime" by Robert Iger. Story of someone who started as a studio operator and went on to become the CEO of Walt Disney.
Really relatable to most of us who are employees and not entrepreneurs. Books on Steve Jobs, Elon Musk are all good but I loved Robert's story more as I could relate and aspire. How he takes tough decisions, how he negotiated with Steve Jobs to acquire Pixar, his honesty, humility etc. are all something we can learn from. Go for it fishes 😄

I got a referral and handed my resume to the person who referred me. I have not heard from anyone for 2 weeks. Should I wait more or should I reach out to the person who referred me to ask if they can be bothered to check with HR? I am thinking maybe I should apply again through their website in case it can be scanned by another person..?
Ok, so this is all new!

I’m coming out of my second marriage feeling disappointed but also very relieved the nightmare is over. I remember feeling so ashamed when my first marriage ended. Given the taboo that surrounds divorce. But this time is so much different, I don’t care about the taboo. I was oppressed and I feel like it’s a lucky escape. Despite all of what happened, I know I truly tried my best. I suggested counseling and arbitration, but he wasn’t interested in either. Please keep me in your duaas.
