I think you set up a burner email and post it here and I email you and then we move to real email. I'm happy to play that way. And I'm kind of glad their no DM on this app! That'd be messy!

MBA? Or no? That's a big gate in consulting. What level job do you think you would do in consulting?

You’ll be fine if the degrees are from top schools/programs. That’s the gate for you. Source: I used to be a consultant at one of the big ones

You could likely get job as an engagement manager. You sound qualified. I know a guy hiring at a smaller shop. Where are you?

A lot of it is getting your foot in the door. Networking matters. Do you have contacts?

Few peripheral contacts, no one that I could or would directly reach out to though. VP1 can you message me privately?

Happy to, how do I do that?

I have no idea!? Anyone know??

I'm confused knowing there's no "joint" HSA and wanted to clarify, that between the both of us, I can contribute on his behalf.
