Hi, I'm looking for book recommendations on mortgages / financing your first real estate deal. Any recommendations? Let me know if you have any general book recs for first time homeowners. Thank you!
Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!

Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
Started horseback riding lessons yesterday after 14 years. It was heaven. I literally forgot where I was, and all the problems I have faced in the last couple of years with my ex-husband. I had to jolt myself back to reality when I got off. Such an incredible experience and can't wait to go again! ❤️🐎

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Worthwhile getting the AWS cloud practitioner cert? (Will there be a return financially in ease of finding job or higher salary)?
Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA? I’m thinking about it in relation to investing in a company (to the tune of 150-200k) or possibly purchasing a vacation property as an investment in a location we’d like to retire (if I did that, could we use it to vacation personally occasionally in the meantime? Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
Currently making $135k base (expected to get $10-15k bonus end of year) Received an offer at a boutique firm for $120k + $15k bonus Y1 with potential to jump to TC of $160k+ in Y2. This company has much better WLB and more interesting work, but feels dumb to not take advantage of other firms potentially offering a huge salary jump for switching right now. Do I keep looking?
