Is equity research a possible exit for strategy consultants? In particular those with extensive CDD experience? Seems like the market work is quite aligned. Has anyone made this exit and would like to share your experience? Thank you.

How can I convince my wife to invest in the market? She wants to keep her earnings in the bank and if I bring it up she gets upset. We are planning on getting a house together next year and I want to position us for financial success.

Salaries are close but I do really well in the market (40% gains) and I really think I can help us fulfill our financial goals by handling all of this for her.

Is anybody else in this exact same position? Can I get in touch with you? 2. Would this qualify as the continuing job exception for the visa suspension proclamation?

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
