I made this transition to business intelligence, there are intellectually challenging days, but most analysis jobs are about 20% analytics and 80% rearranging presentations to deliver your insight. So grass isn’t always greener.

I build products used by many users but had a project added where my team will build an app only for one client. If it’s successful, it may be marketed to similar clients. I am now working as a project manager for this - where the client asks for something and we just build it. It’s completely white glove and will not scale. When I communicate this to executives, the response is “just build what they want”. I’m losing sense of purpose and motivation.

Working with a financial advisor who is trying to sell me on Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IUL) as an investment vehicle. Supposedly there’s no downside risk and 5-7% returns and it’s not taxed. It seems too good to be true and makes me raise an eyebrow. Wondering if anyone has any insights into this or if my advisor is taking me down a risky path.
