I am facing one of the most wild shifts in mindset ever — i always thought i wanted to be this super accomplished career driven woman, but all i care about these days is making enough money to buy more real estate and retire asap. I feel like a hypocrite some days, and somedays i’m willing to sacrifice job interests for higher salary and just get to my goal of early retirement though real estate. Can someone please tell me i’m not going crazy :( this duality is weird to deal with.

Fauci: “In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if [a scientist performing gain of function research] becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario – however remote – should the initial experiments have been performed? Scientists working in this field might say – as indeed I have said – that the benefits of such experiments outweigh the risk” Was it worth it?

35 weeks pregnant and just had an interview for a full time job I would love to land. I haven’t disclosed anything, but if an offer comes, what’s the best way to play it out and not lose the opportunity?
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
Interviews.... I’ve been with Accenture for 10 years and starting to get a few bites outside. Do you still wear suits to a interview or zoom call or is business casual ok? Years ago it was always suits but not sure about 2020. Not an executive role. Thanks and have a great thirsty Thursday!
I want to do strategy consulting on the side and serve prior clients (and net new clients) directly. How do you all think about pricing (and how much)? Hourly rate? By project? Something in between? One-man shop.
Do the increased fees to clients and lower commissions to wholesalers raise any alarm to those invested in PIMCO Income (PONAX)?

Outsourced IA /RA vs. Internal Audit - how’s the job differ? Why choose one path over another? WLB? I have 2 offers one at a consulting firm and one at a bank, just trying to understand the big differences as both seem like potentially good roles and comp is comparable. Also at the consulting firm I met a few people that left industry for consulting (which seems counterintuitive for me coming from external audit). Can someone help me understand why go back to consulting after industry?
