Has/did anyone find that their curiosity or number of interests hinder them in figuring out what they wanted to do with or after an MBA? Some days i could see myself trying to go into IB for a few years, but i have a lot of other personal interests that i could see myself trying to make a career out of. I’ve been thinking about taking the GMAT for two years but because of Covid/me not deciding what i want to do, i haven’t decided if i want to go down the mba route. Turning 28 soon

Me, my brother, and my parents have a family dog in midwest. He's been with us for 4 years now! I am his primary carer and he loves me the most. However, I am planning on starting my MBA in Boston next year. I really want to take him with me, but I won't be home most of the time with classes and networking. So I am planning on leaving him with the family for 2 years (of course I will be visiting) Will he think I abandoned him? Other family members love him too! Just not as much as I do.

New to the Bowl, greetings to all. I have a question for the sales leaders in the group about the design of sales comp plans. We are in professional services and our customers are about 50:50 retained and project-based. As such, we have an appetite for steady new business acquisition in addition to a need to provide excellent account management. Our gigs are usually in the 150K-750K range. Our BD process is very consultative, 99% of our leads are inbound. <more...>

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
I've been a yeild analyst at a big publisher the last 8 months. I'm taking on work beyond me role and excelling. I love my workplace and team, and this place sets me up for the career trajectory I want. Another offer fell into my lap recently, 20% more pay, better benefits, 100% remote, and I'd get experience trading. Despite only having 8 months of programmatic and some media buying down, I was offered a senior role, that I don't feel I know enough to be effective at. Am I overthinking this?

Any thoughts

I’m freelancing at an agency and there’s a chance I’ll have to WFH a few hours over the holidays. Would it be weird/rude to charge x1.5 or x2 my rate cause it’s normally time off?
Current project is very chill and management likes me/gives good reviews but I’m not challenged and do not lead others. I’ve considered switching projects to go up early (SC year2). I am six weeks pregnant, first pregnancy at 33. The other reason I wonder about going up early is that I’m not sure I want to be going up during year3 after being out on maternity leave and life drastically changing. I started my professional career late so feel like I’m playing catch-up too, any advice? Thanks!
