Craigslist can get you a Jarvis desk for $500

Ive been waiting for someone to ask this question. In November, I bought the FlexiSpot for 300. I did extensive research and love it. It is clean a durable. There are nicer ones you could buy for 600-100 but I was cool with one that just did the job. If you’re looking to pay more, find one with a stability bar in between the two legs. Uplift supposedly has high quality desk.

I started doing 10 min easy HIIT in the morning before work and another 10 min HIIT in the early afternoon so that I don’t need to find time to do exercises in the evening. I really start to like this idea coz it gets me into a better mood in the morning and also gives me a break during the day. I also start dialing into calls that are not important and taking a walking while in the meeting. I love home office!

I suck at case interviews. :( Engineering undergrad and currently in a tech consulting role. Feel like I lack general business knowledge. Had an interview today for a Strategy position and feeling discouraged. I am great at setting up a framework but I struggle with progressing the case (anticipating what’s next) and the math. What resources can I use that don’t require spending $200-400 on a course? Or, if it really is a matter of taking a course, which one should I take?
