I'm no lawyer, but check your employment agreement and do not do *anything* at all related to the startup on company computers/phones/time.

Many companies make you run your side company by them. If its competition it is a no go. You may be allowed as a board member. If you trust someone to go in as a partnership you work for free on it and quit to make the switch. Also no work on the company time or computer or they own it

What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?

So I have a rememdial algebra 1 class with 8 kids. I also have 1 hr and 20 mins with them. These kids have done the same subject 1-2 times. Any ideas, resources, or lessons that dont make the class feel repetitive to a prior year?

I seriously doubt some of the recruiters and hiring managers in the big4s now a days, their decisions w.r.t. designation and pay depends on their mood and willingness to work on a particular day.. They will interview for X designation and then will ghost you and then will come back with a lower level and pay saying would you be interested?🤣 Why would somebody be interested to join at a lesser pay, when he/she is currently well in his/her job and just found the opportunity more interesting...
