This week's tech/tool review. is Mind Meister. I use this tool to form a "brain map" of my sales process. I keep a template map and when I get a new deal of significance I use it to make a new map. Since I am process-driven these maps help me keep track of what part of the sale cycle I am in. It also allows me to review past engagement to see how I can make my future pursuits more successful. Give it a look.
For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:

I have full support for promotion from my Engagement Mgr, CFL, Competency Leader. If I don’t get it, should I leave EY? Also, I am at 106k now. What is a good M1 sal? SAP PI Advisory.
I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.

How have you handled equipment and any other security considerations given that the person(s) are not in the office.
