What certificates/training should I do in order to apply for a brand manager/marketing manager on the brand side?

Best advice you’ll get on here is to maintain a emergency fund (3-6x monthly expenses), invest in broad ETFs, keep investing and never withdraw a penny unless you’re living off it or your dead and someone’s doing it for you. Done. Off you go. Anything to the contrary is 🤚

Would you be frustrated or flattered if after every time you had a call to catch up with someone, they make a Facebook post about things you say? I don’t know if this is a friend anymore or someone looking for content so they can get likes. Help me process this 🐠 and thank you.
I had an arranged marriage and have 2 kids now and all I wanted for my husband to be in love with me as much as I am in love with him . He was never expressive . He is polite , respects me and my family and is never violent or abusive in any nature. But he doesn’t put any extra effort for the relationship, like he never holds my hand When we are out., never kisses me other than when we are making love , does not say “ I love u” ( I stopped saying after7 years coz I felt that so am forcing him

Any suggestions for a good workout series/plans that are just based on number of reps per set, rather than time based and following a video?
I have tried chloe ting and other similar youtube ones, I liked the effect of the workout itself, but I'm looking for a popular "fitness guru" workout plan that's just like "12 lunges x 3" etc
(I'm not really experienced enough to put together a decent workout)

Turning 38 in few months, and really having anxiety about turning 40 soonish. How different are 40s from late 30s? What should I look forward to? What should I let go of? I know this will vary person to person but any words of wisdom from ladies in 40s are rocking it are appreciated. I am overall in a okay place (I think), been married for over 10 years with a young toddler, no plans to have another kid, doing okay sorts on career front (taken a bit of step back to focus on baby really), cont.

Hi ladies, do you think night creams are beneficial rather than using the same “day cream” both morning and night? I’m interested in a serum, eye cream, and face cream but have read conflicting info..
Ladies, I have a relationship question and am wondering if any of you have been in the same situation/have advice. I’m mid 20s and in all my past relationships I chose men that I sort of “had power” over, so think a little more beta male. And because I’ve always done this I’ve picked up some (maybe bratty?) tendencies or just am used to positioning things so I get what I want (terrible, I know). Cont.
When is it time to settle for a guy? Settled for many years and now at 29 I refuse to do so. Bummed out to break things off with a guy who had issues in bed & dif love language. So funny, hot and cont
Can you guys offer advice on how to build and maintain a network for a female who is just starting out in consulting? We place a lot of emphasis on networking and I wanna have genuine conversations.
Some food for thought… Sadly I think white feminism neglects women of color and trans women, which is ironic because it’s feminism is about equality. I see too many women look at women who choose to dress modestly as being oppressed and that’s not the case for everyone that chooses to dress modestly particularly in the Western countries
Hi ladies! I am DYING with anxiety - I was recently extended an offer to join Kearney, and I think I’m going to take it! It doesn’t start until August, but I may ask if I can change the start date to September because it’s a rare opportunity for me to spend some time with out of state family. However, due to the current economic climate I am really scared they could rescind the offer like how I have been seeing on LinkedIn. Anyone from Kearney who might be able to enlighten me on this?
I am planning on resigning because I’m in complete state of burnout- my body and mind have stopped to work w me and I can’t even push myself to force them to either focus or move as they did before. I have been w my company only for a year and changed departments recently , how do I do the resignation without burning bridges and making people think negatively of me? Do I tell them what’s going on? I am at my breaking point and quite literally starting to “break”…
I have a random week off coming up between projects and seriously need to get out of the city (in a safe socially distanced manner), but haven’t been able to find any friends able to go anywhere. Have a guy I’ve been talking to/going out with but haven’t established if we’re anything serious - would it be weird to ask if he wants to go on a trip? He has a decent bit of flexibility in his schedule and has been on a couple trips lately, so think it could work, but no idea how to broach the topic
6 months ago, I left my abusive ex boyfriend and moved to another town. He had taken out loans to the tune of 5k in my name with Affirm while we were together, he paid them off and I paid him for them. He threatened me if I were to leave, one of the threats was that if I dare left, he would stop paying and I would be held liable for these loans. I froze my credit and alerted Affirm. Now I woke up to an email this morning stating that my credit score had tanked 30 points as he stopped paying.
