Any bad golfers in NYC? Just finished my 5th lesson and am ready to lose some golf balls
Who has taken a huge risk and failed? LinkedIn, business forums, and media love to normalize the “all-in” risks that led to reward, but who has a true failure story? How did or how are you working to come back from it? Life lessons exist in failure. Sharing these could hopefully help someone else facing the same crossroads.

How many people here are leveraging multiple income streams to achieve FIRE? Would be curious to know what those other streams are and the biggest lessons you’ve learned so far.
So, I had to be away for two days. On my way back into town, I stopped at my classroom, just to make sure it was still standing. The sub had rearranged my stuff and taken candy (that I had intended to give to the office workers) and said she gave it to one of my classes. I am livid. Am I over reacting?
Best places to learn SQL and/or Python for free? I heard of code academy and started there but once I got a couple lessons in it asked me start a free trial/pay for the pro version. I don’t mind paying to learn either but just wanted know if I’m going pay should I still use code academy or something else?
I induce meaningful learning in my classroom by using concrete situations in the world as a resource to illustrate the learning goals of my lessons.
Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
I’ve been burned by the stock market before trading options (when the market bottomed out in 2016) and I learned my lesson on recklessly speculating on spikes and dips in the market. Anyone else feel like this situation is gonna create a class of retail investors who are over confident in the “ease” of timing the market, without doing an research, after all this dies down?

When did you feel like you were successful? People around me think it’s impressive that I work at Deloitte; however, I’m miserable and hate the work I’m doing. Just accepted another job that others would deem a dream company and salary but I’m just afraid of being miserable there too. I just don’t feel like I’m good enough, will be happy, or be in a position where I feel like I’m successful as others.
Hi all! Will any kind fish be willing to read my resume and give me feedback? I’ve been applying to different position but haven’t had any luck. Someone mentioned it is too specialized but I would love that a new set of eyes could read it to make it more appealing to consulting recruiters. Would really appreciate it :)
Does taking medical leave for 3 months adversely affect future exit opportunities? When I apply to other jobs, does HR check how much leave you took and see that as a red flag?
