I loved extreme ownership. Great stories and tie backs to the business world. Only negative is that I now really incorporate that mindset and have to not-be-frustrated when others don't just own things lol. Idk the other book so I can't compare.

Great leadership material, highly recommended!

Extreme ownership is awesome and applicable in the business world. I recommend.

Glad to hear it’s good. I ended up buying dichotomy of leadership but I saw the reviews were very similar books so hopefully I’ll have the same experience!

I read extreme ownership and loved every bid of it.

You probably will, jocko(or his ghost writer is great at telling stories).

Nah. I could never take someone named Jocko seriously if you paid me to. Unless he was a literal clown

So I don’t mean no harm, but the man was a legit and well respected navy seal. They don’t give tridents out to clowns. You may want to rethink this…

How do you guys decide where to invest money? I just bought a 2 bedroom apartment that I’m confident will bring long term growth. I plan on buying another apartment for rental purposes in the next few months. But I want to start investing in the market in a smart way that will lead to greater financial stability. Does anyone have any tips / books they use? I can’t invest directly so I would need to hire an investment manager - but I feel like i don’t even know where to start.

I was told that I won’t be considered for my promotion to SM this year end because I’m on maternity leave. This sounds sketchy given that I did everything in my power to prepare before I went on mat leave. Now I’m pushing my coach and leadership to let me go up for promotion in an off cycle promotion. Is this fair and normal or is this a sign I need to look for a new job and resign? I feel like I’m being punished for being on maternity leave.

I sometimes break down alone in my room while working and feel very frustrated. Is this normal or am I just in a bad project?

My uncle, and aunt, had about $750k in investments scattered across 14 different retirement accounts, brokerage accounts, annuities, on different platforms. They are 65.

Not sure where to ask this. I went and had a wellness visit and a visit to check a torn rotator cuff at my local hospital system in July. I had Aetna through KPMG.

My wife's insurance rejected all of my claims, didn't pay anything, and I owe the full balance personally. Shouldn't Aetna have paid this? Can I go and make Aetna cover it retroactively?
