Curious as to views on alt. inv. Anyone stray off the beaten path with any of the below? 1.) Bitcoin mining (aka worth the initial investment in the hardware?) 2.) real estate REITs - most likely through Fundrise 3.) peer-2-peer lending. 4.) cryptocurrencies 5.) franchising a (cheap) business 26M, debating if any of them will yield higher returns than my VTTSX fund, which I invest in through both 401k & Roth. Curious as to your guys thoughts.

Boston folks who travel, how long before take off do you get to the airport? I have to fly out of Logan Wednesday at 7:45 and my parents (MA locals) are telling me to get to Logan at 5AM. I find it hard to believe I need almost two hours to go through security.
Going to Vegas for the first time in December. I have Marriott platinum. Are there valuable status matches I should do and influence where I look to stay? Thanks for the advice!!

Marriott and SPG members can link their accounts, Match elite status, and transfer points 3-to-1!
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

Anyone else have a personal and/or work space that’s just absolute chaos? I haven’t managed to keep my bedroom/office clean for more than 1 day since COVID (granted it was also messy in the before times). Every surface is covered in laundry / dishes / papers / tech / cosmetics. God forbid my webcam ever shifted from it’s usual position and revealed my quarters to my coworkers (or clients!) Pls tell me I’m not alone in being a fairly well-adjusted adult with the bedroom of a teenager :|

Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills.

Does anyone know if their firm has any inclusion initiatives around hiring individuals with special needs as part of a transition program? For example, when offices are open, having individuals be employed by the firm and help with more administrative tasks such as helping to get conference rooms set up for events, assisting visitors, etc.? My younger brother has special needs so am trying to help my parents look for a few options and was wondering if any of the consulting firms have this!
