All of these appointment setting services are a scam. I wouldnt even waste time checking them out. They are effectively saying, hey, its easy to get appointments with highly qualified prospects that are interested, engaged, and ready. Let us do that for you.If it were that easy, we would all be rolling in it. We are not idiots (most of us) If it were that easy, we would all be picking up the phone and prospecting the shit out of our markets.These people are no better at it than you and i, they just do the work, and sometimes the prospect is qualified and interested and just as often, if not more often, they are not interested. If its worth doing, its worth doing yourself, because nobody will grow your business with more passion than you will

By a 'lark' meant posting here...know it is a scam, but call caught me off guard and actually talked to the guy. For some stupid reason felt bad for the guy and listened to his story. It's a job, and somebody's got to do it.

Random, last-minute request.

Dallas is hosting “America's Outstanding Teen National Competition” (Miss America-Affiliated) this week and they are looking for one CPA to volunteer/support for 1-2 hours a day (Tues-Fri). Their CPA had to back out today with Covid.

If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering, I can connect you with the organizers. Good opportunity to give back/support a good cause.

I started a consulting job at an upper mid-tier firm back in May. I sat on the bench for a month before being onboarded onto client (FAANG client to be non-specific) and I am more than a month on this new client. There are about 5 other C/SC and a few Principals that do “check-ins” with the group. I have been assigned an ETL task (PySpark/Airflow) that will take me about 40 hours e2e to deploy. This is my assignment for the next 4 months. Most of my colleagues do not know code at all. Normal?
