One of the best business lessons I ever got was from the Simpsons. Bill gates destroyed homers computer and Internet business and told him "you don't get rich writing lots of checks"
So true. I have gotten a lesson for life.
What was that trainwreck last night?!?!? I know we're not supposed to talk about politics, but my comment is bipartisan. Our gov is a mess and our leaders unbecoming! What will our students learn from this? What can we do to make it a teachable lesson?
My boss often catches my careless grammatical/spelling mistakes in my communications, so I created a proofreading rubric and even had a colleague proofread it. I finally got the draft perfect today, but forgot to turn off “markup” on track changes. Manager called me out on it, and won’t let me live it down. I work so hard on it and feel incompetent and like a massive failure. Lesson learned. 😞I now feel like I have to overcompensate and prove my worth through other means
Thinking about getting into the market but it’s too risky since the premium is high and the fundamentals are murky. A lesson that I learned is that patience is needed in this environment.
Are you recording and posting all of your live lessons for absent students to watch later?
New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.

Has anyone gone through the process of on-boarding a close management software? I’m specifically looking to hear of experience comparing Blackline, Floqast, and Trintech, ultimately what you chose and why.

For parents with school-age kiddos (kindergarten up), what do you do for childcare? Thinking about giving up our nanny, but worried about juggling days off, sick days, and summer break.
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.

Had a 3rd round interview with PwC (Partner) and they said they would either want to have another interview with a team member or will “move forward with next steps”. This was last week and recruiter hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Manager position. What does this mean? Bad news? Trying to not be disappointed yet 😭
