Had a miscarriage.. it’s my 1st baby and we didn’t find out until 12 weeks (via ultrasound) that the baby passed away at 9 weeks and had to get a dnc. My body is still recovering.. Just want some hope or I guess stories of success after having a miscarriage. I do have pcos so it’s harder for me to get pregnant.. but it still happened. Anyone have any thoughts or advice? Does it get better..?

I have an interview super day coming up for a PE Ops role. Only got info that it will be 6-8 interviews, mostly fit. Two questions on my mind:
1) Anything I should prepare (other than knowing their business, portfolio companies, my life story)?
2) Apparently 1-2 convos are with folks on the deal team. Should I need to brush up on my LBO and DCF knowledge?

Stress is causing a massive flare-up of racing thoughts recently. I feel like it's been at least a week or two since I last was able to completely clear my mind. And if it's not random stream-of-consciousness mess, it's music. Ever had a song stuck in your head? Because I've had one for four days now. Driving me nuts. Anyone else struggle with this/have a solution?

I have a weird experience with KPMG India . Two weeks ago I had salary negotiation with the HR manager. He told me that the offer will be released in a couple of days but I haven't received the offer letter yet.I tried reaching out to the HR manager but didn't receive any response. Shall I take it as no?

Has anyone here ever tried negotiating “at will” employment terms in the US? I’m curious what specific terms folks have asked for and how the potential employer reacted.
This week I found an app on playstation4 and Apple TV streaming called Pluto Tv. It’s free and has a bunch of old shows playing 24 / 7. Including MST3K, the Rifleman.

How many of you have had to curse out our Millennial/Gen-Y friends about calling us old and inept. ￼
At what point does it not make sense to buy/ build a bigger home? My husband dislikes our house immensely (was his with former wife) and wants to move. Only owes $180k on it, we’ve been together 6 years and thus I’d rather just remodel. It’s the only thing we disagree about - moving or staying. He doesn’t want to invest one more cent in this house.
Any one considered doing part time Consulting engagements via Services like MBO, Catalent GLG etc. Seems like a good way to stay in the game earn some extra income but do it on an Ad hock basis.
It will never be the same again
Does anybody have any experience getting a Grandpad or Jitterbug (or similar) for an elderly relative who is not local to you? My Dad is reluctant to carry a cell phone and never uses the flip phone I got him 10 years ago but maybe if it was more basic /easier to use he would (?) I told him if he goes out walking he should be carrying one. He has a history of falling a few times a year and I want him to be able to call 911 if he needs to. I’m a plane ride away. He lives by himself. He refuses
Yesterday my younger brother called me looking for good hidden swimming spots in the mountains. He was up there with a bunch of friends and their original plans had fallen apart hard. And I go much more often than he does.
I told him I had map pins that are EXACTLY what you need for these hard to find places. I can send them in 10 mins when I get home.
Reply? Forget it, I'm all set.
Yep, 10 mins is too long. Here I was expecting "Wow! That's fantastic!" How silly of me.
My observation is that it is hard for consulting partners to land the quality public or private board roles everyone naturally targets. Despite there being a significant amount of exceptional talent that could be deployed, there is a big bias against consultants. Everyone wants “operators,” but I feel every board could also benefit from one current or former consulting partner. But sadly, that’s not the way the external world looks at things...
At this point in career, would you take a step down in title to grab a transfer opportunity and get out of a toxic work environment ?
We're aiming to live long enough to spend it all. If we die younger there is a substantial estate and only nieces and nephews. I have three topics that I'm requesting your thoughts on before I engage an attorney;
