Come take my current project. My previous ones were all reasonable hours where this one has me traveling east (on Sundays) often staying through Friday and burning the midnight oil often. I'd gladly go back to having time for the boy and dog at home. But there's no real way to know about the projects burn rate until you are there or know the clients reputation.

I am underwater on proposals and other BD stuffs.... I'd love to have some extra hands. Burner?

I'm not sure what burner means. I rarely use this app, but yes I'd love to help.

Hi A2 can I jump in as well? I have a lot of bandwidth on the bench. If you need extra extra hands burner is phillyconsultant01@gmail.com

OP - create a temp/burner email, and I'll reach out to see if you can help!

A3 - I'll hit you up!

I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly. I blocked out time to work a full day knowing I’d dive right in but that’s not how it turned out. My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?

Merrill Advisors - I have a client with an account at Merrill and am told that they have a money fund available which insures up to an aggregate of $5,000,000 in FDIC coverage.

Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.

Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
