How are others handling moving office home when you are in your late 60s? I am re-Vising my practice from trial practice to probate and estate planning with some PI. No one wants to buy any of the textbooks or other trial books or medical books I have. For those of you who also are changing their practice, how dealing with the expense of practice stuff you bought but no one wants anymore? My binders were dropped off at eight at an elementary school. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼

Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

Today I was officially diagnosed with adult adhd. I can’t begin to explain how relieved I am. It turns out things that I’ve considered personality defects are actually symptoms of this disorder. Interrupting people, saying inappropriate things, swirling on a topic for days: all issues I’ve battled with since childhood and finally have an answer. Mental health is important. Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.
THE BEACH or THE BENCH?!?!? As consultants, can we define this term once and for all? Let this post stand as the eternal arbiter of the question for all generations to come.

Fellow consultants, I’m struggling and I know complaining about this will only make me look weak but I need to vent. I’ve been working upwards of 60 hours a week since January and I’m tired. If I was doing meaningful work, it would be one thing but most of my days are spent supporting my client with fire drills that end up not mattering. He’s very reactionary and trying to guide him to hold off or think of other approaches doesn’t work. (Cont).

Hi fellow fishes, I've been offered a Tech strategy role at PWC SDC, Bangalore. My total experience is of 6 years (2.5 pre-MBA and 3.5 post-MBA). The offered role is of the same domain in which I've been working for the last 3.5 years @ACN. PWC are offering me a Senior Associate position. My question is - should I or can I negotiate with the HR to give me a better position (e.g. Manager) than the Senior Associate? Thanks in advance!
