Any good book recommendations?
Hi Account friends! It’s the start of a new year and I was hoping you all could share any book / newsletter / blog / course recommendations that help keep you up to snuff. Feeling a bit stale and like the last year has been a tactical grind. I want to brush up on modern thinking for our industry - the latest and greatest marketing books, strategy perspectives, creative self help, etc. to feel more alive as we start 2022.
Comment your favs and THANK YOU in advance!

Hello all, We are about to start our first IVF cycle in the next 2 weeks. What questions should I ask my RE before starting the cycle to make sure we are doing everything right. Anything you wish you had known before you went through the cycle.
History: Trying for 3 years. I have a blocked fallopian tube on 1 side and the other ovary had a dermoid cyst that had to be surgically removed. The other ovary does not seem to be responding well and isn't producing eggs. Hence moving to IVF.

My mom’s credit isn’t so great so I co-signed with my dad to qualify for a lower interest primary residence mortgage back in May. Both my parents work and they make 100% of the mortgage payments very comfortably. I want to buy a house sometime late next year, will I be able to qualify for a mortgage if I already have a mortgage under my name?

Noob question. How do people muster the courage to invest their hard earned $ knowing they could lose it?

Does anyone have any recommendations for regional sales/recruiting manager roles in the Nashville area that pays a livable Salary plus commissions. I have been in Sales for 15 years, and management roles for over 5. I moved to TN in 2019 right before the pandemic and it has been one thing after the next. I have considered tech sales courses to get into that but I love working for staffing companies, managing clients/recruiters/other sales staff and being in the field as well as in the office.
I’m a little over three years into practicing and hit a wall. 9 months into working @ my 2nd law firm and we amicably parted ways. I have nothing lined up and am finally going to take the break I’ve desperately been needing (maybe 2 months - to figure out what I really want). Im excited but nervous for the future. This job is hard and I’m trying to be gracious on myself during this off time as a non-contributing spouse. If anyone has gone through this and has any thoughts to share, please do.
Mental health issues in our profession are finally being recognized. While mental health issues are not unique to lawyers, the profession and it's client service mantra present unique challenges.

Did anyone left coforge recently? I have to leave by next week, and company asked to courier their laptop back to office.
I accepted a $115K base salary, 13% bonus, 10k sign on bonus (scientist supervisor) job and two weeks later, got a $135K base, 17% bonus, and 15K sign on bonus (Senior scientist role) offer from another company. Should I accept the new offer ? How do I tell the previous company about this? Also, I’ve already negotiated with the first company and the $115K base is the negotiated salary. I really do not prefer one company over the other. They’re both great! I’m very confused here. TIA🙏
