I am watching the RNC convention after watching some of the DNC convention last week. They are opposite. It does seem to me that RNC is much less negative and alive. DNC was brutal & came across as fake due to the prerecorded events. If this convention continues like this I expect Trump to pick up a couple points. I prefer positive politics over negative from Biden.

Experienced investors, buying my first rental property for 168k. For primary property I know it make sense to get the lowest rate by putting down as much as possible. But for this one I'm getting 25% down at 2.875% and 20% down at 3.625% no points. Saving 8400 in upfront costs with 20% down. What do I do? Also going to fix it up estimated costs 15k.
How’s the Royal Hawaiian Resort? Thinking about redeem 5 nights there. Worth it? 20000 points per night .

I recently left consulting to work at a FinTech startup here in Chicago. We’re filling out our Business Analysis team (going from 3 to 6) and I’m looking for Directors and Managers. Required skills include SQL (can use joins, case-when, etc. - not a data warehousing role) & Excel (pivots and index-match), and a nice to have would be an understanding of lending/credit programs and exec presentation skills. https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/1989629988 DM me if interested! FYI - we’re remote currently. Also, sorry but we do not sponsor.
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
