Any tips or best practices on meeting with a client for the first time? I'm not leading the engagement, but I'd still like to make a professional impression!

😀 haha I think I have that much down, thanks!

Get a strong general direction of what they want and the direction the project/analysis is heading. Conversation will wander, but take good notes out of the session. Share with your manager.

Just listen, and stay in tune with what your seniors are saying since your job is just to cover their asses.

Bought condo from parents for 180K with fmv 450K. I’m coming up on 2 years of living here but thinking about moving. Should I sell or rent out? 165K left on mortgage. Monthly cashflow if I rent would be ~200-300.

It's awkward when someone asks you how much you want to tip.. Example the massage lady today asked if I wanted to leave gratuity and how much. Giving tips more discreetly would have been better 😔
