How do you deal with family in India believing and spreading every false rumor/forwarded message on WhatsApp? I stopped correcting them a few years ago when I realized it was bad for my relationship with them, but the forwards nowadays especially related to Covid is outright dangerous (and obviously false when read by an educated person). Very worried about this

How much do y’all keep in emergency savings? What does that account for? I am currently at home with zero expenses but want to keep some cash. Does having to pay a big medical fall into this account?
First year attorney struggling with my mental health (& suicidal ideation). Got a job at a boutique firm right after law school in 2019 (in an area of the law I had no interest in but bills) and then the pandemic hit and I did not feel supported by the firm while WFH. My mental health declined as did my work product and I’m essentially being let go by the firm. Really struggling with thoughts of being a failure and like maybe I’m just dumb and someone mistakenly let me graduate law school.

I don't have anyone else who gets this, but I hit my personal goal this year in almost every category; revenue, income, AUM growth, etc. Our fiscal year ends in October and I ended the year with a bang. Just super excited and I hope everyone else knows, this business is worth it when you put in the time and effort! Edit: also passed CFP in March!
Want to accept an offer with a start date in January 2022 (which is fine with me). It makes sense to give notice in mid December, but it will feel kind of weird to have this knowledge for two months while pretending everything's normal to my current firm?
Can anyone speak to culture of the EC/VC and M&A groups at WSGR? Looking at remote positions. Thanks!
It’s interesting to see a lot of sales people want to learn about OTEs but nobody asks about quotas related to OTEs. Most companies make OTEs look attractive and then demand massive quotas and only 20-30% of people hit goals. I’m curious to learn about marketplace commission rates. What’s your quota target? What’s your commission % paid on every dollar up to 100% ? And what’s offered in accelerators above 100%?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
