Earning more is a crime in this country. The govt doesn't want anyone to do better in their life. It's like the govt is punishing us with huge tax rates. Sigh!

17% of Central govt Income comes from Income tax and this 17% goes to Defense (8 %) and Central govt schemes ( 9 % ) . So our money is used to spend on Defense sector and central govt schemes which Politicians announce like "We did this and we did that" .

Dwfense is just an example, you can add any other thing such as pension etc also instead of defence.

It definitely feels like it.

Has anyone worked at Valor Equity Partners? How are the culture/pay/reputation?


Anybody else over working in the rat race altogether? I’ve jumped around a few times in the last 5 years, improving my comp and aligning more to my strengths and interests, yet I’m still unfulfilled. I’m pretty much doing exactly what the last 20 years of being in consulting has prepared me for: advising clients at the highest levels - and I’m bored. I’d love to leave and take up a more creative job, but of course, that doesn’t pay the bills - anybody think of, or actually made that transition?


I’m having a bit of sticker shock here as I look at my step son’s and step daughter in laws baby registry. They are asking for a stroller that is $600 an extra seat for it which is $250.
