Im 30yo and make $140k working in strategy and consulting at Accenture. I feel like I’m at the point where I want to achieve FIRE faster but I can’t see myself cutting down my expenses any further. What are the ways people here tried to increase their income while working in consulting?
As a leader (and a woman) do you feel like you have to over-explain yourself in a meeting? I'll observe colleagues and often think that a quick, "No" with a short explanation is just enough. Why do we feel the need over-explain ourselves to prove a point (especially fellow women colleagues)?
I joined the current company when I was about 2 months pregnant and they were extremely welcoming.. My baby is now 2+ years and we are planning to have another baby soon. What are your views on opting for the maternity leaves 2nd time within 3.5 years of joining the company? Would it reflect badly on me? Btw, I'm a high perfomer at my company and have also had a promotion recently. I am feeling too guilty but baby no.2 is also a priority given the age factor and the fertility concerns

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.
I will soon be a first generation college undergraduate (finance), and am the first of my family to persue a career and own a home. You can imagine that this career thing is very outside of my comfort zone and I have no guidance. I am 31 yo now and I want to get out of the non profit world I'm currently in to advance my career.
Is there any advice you can provide?
