What is the best book to read to learn about investing in general or investing in real estate
Seeking advice / recommendations: Hello everyone, I'm trying to get into real estate investing. Some of the books I've read have talked about buying multi-unit properties and utilizing investors to get the necessary capital. Does anyone have experience in getting investors? How do you identify investors who may be interested? Are there any sites where you can invest in or post real estate investment opportunities? Thank you in advance
PwCers: how do you give your notice to HR if they are in a different city? Project Fit ruined everything, so I don't really know who my HR contact is but I know they are not in my office.
COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...
For any of you real estate investors, what tools or sources did you learn from when getting started. Can’t find a mentor currently so want to find some highly recommended books or videos. If focused on the tri-state area (NY, NJ, Long Island mainly) that would be even better. My hope is to buy and rent out a apartment while also owning a house and house hacking that by renting part of it out. Trying to understand all the steps, traps, and how to find if it’s a good investment.
Is there a difference of being on the beach and on the bench? My take is that you are on the beach when you roll off a project that has given you a hard time and want to relax a bit. The bench when you really want to be out on a project but cant for som reason. What is you take? Are they just two words for the same thing

I am in a phase of a project that is 12+ hour days - I know it’s only going to be for a month or so but balancing the smallest of other tasks is making me stress the f out. Family trying to group text all day long about holidays, friends wanting to buy flights for trips, figuring out groceries and personal errands, time with my husband. Im usually a list/planner person but even that is stressing me out. How do others handle these phases of work? I know it’s temporary but still 😵💫

I’m a pretty anxious person and I’ve realized that a remote work environment only makes me more so - not being able to read people’s tone well, email/ping responses being more delayed than they would be in a conversation, the awkwardness of virtual meetings, etc. I’m in therapy and will discuss this there but would love to hear some tips about how people manage work anxiety specifically in a remote consulting environment.

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.
