Ever since I secured my current position, I've been struggling so much with imposter syndrome. How do I overcome this?

When you catch yourself thinking these thoughts, try to challenge them and remind yourself that you are capable and qualified for your job. You can also find support from others who may have experienced imposter syndrome. Seek out a mentor or colleague who can offer encouragement and feedback, and who can help you stay grounded in reality.

It's normal to feel this way sometimes. No one is perfect, and everyone has moments where they doubt their abilities. Something that helped me was making a list of my accomplishments and strengths. This can help you reaffirm your qualifications and boost your confidence.

Imposter syndrome can be difficult to overcome, but there are a few things that you can do to help. First, try to remind yourself that your accomplishments are real, and that you deserve your position. You've worked hard for it, and you're just as capable as anyone else. Second, focus on your own strengths and weaknesses. Acknowledge that you're not perfect, but also recognize the things that you're good at. And lastly, don't be afraid to ask for help.

Hi everyone,
I am looking to switch and it would be great if anyone can provide referral for BCG, USA.

Have any of you worked two full time positions at once before or known someone who has, during the pandemic? I’m contemplating doing so.

I have worked at company A for 7 months now and they require I come in once a week.
I also just accepted a fully remote position at company B and was going to put my two weeks in to company A when my background check for company B was nearing a close but now I kind of just want to keep both
They’re both finance positions with 2 YOE.

I'm raising some pre-seed money to fund a patent application. The entire business is based on the ability to get this patent.

Saying that, I'm trying to learn about how raising money pertains to stock price. I've been learning about how to value the company based on 20x for investors, but I'm stuck at the difference between pre-seed, seed, to Series A.

Does pre-seed get bought out by seed or Series A?

Does pre-seed expect a 20x to seed and then seed 20x to Series A? Or...
