Interesting. Very interesting.
Got a mail from pwc asking to specify if I have personal laptop as official laptop delivery will be delayed.
What if I don’t have a personal laptop?
How does pwc handle this situation?
273 days: one day at a time. The ninth month was brutal, but good preparation for the holidays.
Also got to see someone celebrate 3 years today, so that was pretty cool.

Looking at buying a first home in DC and debating a refurbished townhome versus one that I’d fix up myself. I’m wondering if anyone has experience on what a head-to-toe renovation of an older townhome would cost in this area (working through contractors, as I’m not the most handy)? Likely would include fixing up kitchen, bathrooms, fresh paint, and maybe new floors.
Hi all, I am thinking about renting a remote place somewhere in the mountains for couple months. Which state and town do you recommend? Originally was considering Ouray CO, but limited to no availability. I am not looking for luxury. Love playing in the mountains.

Can people opine on public finance - municipal banking. Been reading pros and cons. No real interest in exiting to PE, really like the idea of working on something tangible in this space. Biggest concern is what if I don’t like it and end up pigeonholing myself. It’ll be at a BB if that’s helpful for context.

I’ve had a fair amount of success in a couple of direct sales ventures, but I’ve ultimately never risen to the top because I’m not a great teambuilder. I’m trying to figure out how to pivot my career & make something from the skills I learned there, but I’m not really sure what that would look like because I never saw myself getting into sales in the first place. Where should I go from here? What is the pay structure typically like in entry-level sales jobs?

Pretty cheesed my colleague “took” my account
I’m on the sales side, was working a pretty big acc, pitched them, talked to the literal owner of the chain
After following up with him, his secretary very sternly said “if he’s interested he’ll reach out 😡” so I said damn okay, I’ll try again next month I guess
Fast forward to a few days ago, and my colleague literally sends *one* email…. ONE….and he goes “sign me up!” So she got the account
She was fully within rules of engagement
