Book tasting....google it! A great way to expose kids To new books! Also - make sure they’re doing lots of talking about what they are reading and get creative - they can’t act out what they read, partner read, etc!

Received verbal offer for L4 non-tech role (accounting/finance) and I’m very disappointed in the numbers:

Base: 111k

Bonus: 15%
Sign-on: 10k

I told my recruiter that my expectation is $130k base and 120k equity, which I thought would be reasonable given my 7 YOE. They even skipped HC bc I was a clear cut (not to toot my own horn). Any thoughts & tips on negotiation? I have no competing offer rn. Any input is greatly appreciated!
