Any VCs out there have advice on how to build up deal flow? Different channels, tips you’ve learned from your own experience, or events I should know about. Firm is younger but the partners have good connections and reputation, just want to find new ways to increase deal flow quality and quantity. Thanks in advance.

I’m working through this same thing at my VC firm. Practitioner-led shop where it seems like the partners already have all the connections. But I’ve done a few specific things that I can share. Happy to hop on a call and compare notes with you.

Not necessarily a woman-specific problem, but as an A2 hoping to be promoted this fall, I’m nervous I’m losing important time to learn. Any words of wisdom?

It's funny that there have been so many Uber haters who relentlessly criticized the company for making taxi drivers go broke...yet I am not hearing any staunch WFH supporters worry about tens of thousands of facilities management and maintenance professionals whose jobs will all but disappear if people do not return to their offices.

I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)

Did not make Google hiring committee due to 2 borderline interviews. Phone interviewer (American guy) gave me a strong feedback, 5 on site interviewers, 2 Desi guys gave me borderline feedback, remaining 3 American guys gave me strong feedback. Google requested a follow-up interview and the additional interviewer provided good feedback as well. I am not sure what's wrong with me, every time I interview with desi interviewer, I tend to screw things up.
