I used the a long time ago when I did not know much about investing. Fees are high (tend towards front loaded) and investments/insurance options are average.

You can do better.

Looking forward to what Sprint Qualifying throws up 🙌🏻

I imagine if nothing goes wrong then order at the end of Sat will be order of pace but I'm sure (or at least I'm praying) some mid-field runner will do something crazy and end up causing an issue to a front runner and that will make Sunday interesting.

What are your thoughts?

Do you all think it'll just be: use softs on Fri set fastest pace, use mediums on Sat and finish in order they qualified, and then 1 stop Med-Hard strategy on Sun?

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...
