Do you have a side hustle that may qualify for a business card? Chase has three good ones.

Even if you sell 1 item a year via Facebook, eBay, Amazon, etc. you can say you have a sole prop that sells merch / used goods.

Some potential options are

1. If you have no concerns paying off the amount in full and are looking to maximize points

A) use one of your existing cards

OR

B) use a card with 2% cash back like Citi Double Cash

2. If you have cash flow concerns or don’t want to take a hit on your cash cushion, ask your dental office if they offer BNPL - most offer carecrdit which comes with 0% APR for 6 or 12 mos

Looking for advice about what types of creative (but still corporate) non-legal roles would be easiest to pivot into. I’m an entertainment/IP/privacy lawyer but have only been practicing for 1.5 years. But I already know that the law isn’t for me and am trying to brainstorm what other career paths may be a good fit. Main complication is that I need work visa sponsorship. My first thought was marketing/advertising, but other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

hi fishes,
I have joined lti as a lateral.
After joining they have asked me to collect laptop from office. When i went, the laptop was not in a great condition and was refurbished. I am guessing it was used almost 3 to 4 years before me.

I asked them for a new laptop and they said they dont have new laptop in stock, i even checked with my manager she said she is also using refurbished laptop so no problem.

Anyone else faced this problem earlier?. If yes how did you act on it?
