I agree with D1. Find one or two good partners who can bring different skills and get it off the ground. You can think of being full time after getting funding or generating revenue

Deloitte: I see there is an HR policy that allows you to go 60-80% whenever you want to/in any role so long as there is a business case. Does this ever happen in consulting? Is it more likely to be approved in certain groups/with certain skills? I’m thinking it might be feasible to stay here if I could could go on a reduced schedule after baby 2. If that’s something I could work towards and prepare for in the year or so prior, I’d like to set myself up well for it! Any insight is appreciated!

What are the most well respected professional certifications for a career in finance? I have a background in FP&A, cloud/IT finances, mortgage analysis (reverse and forward). I’ve been successful on every project so far but I find myself being drawn towards the worlds of M&A and PE so I’m thinking CFA would be best primer for a career in those. Currently a SA with 4.5 YOE. Thanks everyone. Any personal feedback on what life was like before/after obtaining a certification would be helpful!
