I was told to build a slide laying out a project impact, deliverables and lessons learned by EoD. What content was I given? The word ABS. I asked for clarification and got back, "Just guess, lol."
Has anyone started a company while consulting with intent of making it a full time gig?Tips/risks? Lessons learned?
Hi All! I recently started my own Private Equity firm. Searching for any big do’s, dont’s, or hard lessons you learned along the way. Do any veteran entrepreneurs/PE partners or staff members have advice they would like to pass down? I know early on in my consulting career there are many things I wish I could go back and tell myself.
As always, thank you all! 🐟
YES! I'm sad that I don't care about coming to school or working as hard as I usually do to develop good lesson plans. The admin, the kids the political arena, the COVID crap and apathy among all has hit my enthusiasm. I want to take some sick days but felt like I needed to keep teaching my AP kids AND writing SUB plans is a pain. Our principal and supt. are stepping down and we are getting several new teachers. I'm hoping our school will get back on track next year...
Hi Everyone! I was just made aware that I will be taking the reigns of teaching a LS SS class this coming school year. I have nothing prepared and since I t has been almost a decade since I taught this class I am stressing out.

Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.
Just finished my first home renovation, taking a 1B1B condo from $425K to $490-500K appraisal with a $40K renovation. I learned a lot of lessons along the way (I could barely swing a hammer before), but I won’t make a ton of money on the deal.
Think I try again and see if I can cut down the cost/time based on experience, or do I take the hint that flipping isn’t for me
Even though I have off a few extra days for Thanksgiving, I really won't be "off". I'll be grading essays, tests, scrambling to catch up on what I don't have time to do, lesson planning. Ugh!
First time home buyer. Any lessons learned from experience? Something you wish you knew before? Something you wish you had in your house but don't?
What do you wish you knew about consulting when you first started your career? If you could teach your first year self a great lesson, what would you say? Be specific.
Appropriate golf attire for a bigger guy? (6ft, 210lbs) have a golf lesson this weekend and client outing next month and need to get some new golf appropriate attire.
Now my dream job is a housewife. I enjoy cooking, cleaning and decorating the house. I can spend a day by working out, walking my dog and volunteering in my community. I can offer free foreign language lessons to the kids. I can prepare delicious and healthy meals for my unknown future hubby and giving him a massage every weekend. I wanna be a housewife if someone really loves me and would like to spend the rest of life with me. Wake up, girl 😂 BYW, I’m serious. A lady in 40s in NY.
How long did it take you to learn golf well enough to go out and play on a course? Just started taking lessons three weeks ago and really excited for it, but I’m not sporty and want to manage my expectations 😅

I’m pending an offer from Visa Inc for a Senior Director role and want to know some guardrails. The recruiter informed me in our very first call that Visa “doesn’t pay cash to bring people on” and alluded to not offering a sign on bonus or RSUs. This is very strange to be competitive in the tech world. Would love to hear input into pushing for both equity and sign on as part of the offer. Thanks!

How do you guys manage to work-out as big law associates “on call” 24/7? I used to work out religiously but ever since I started practicing, I can’t get myself to get back. Anyone care to share routines and what works for them?
This reads like a headline from The Onion.
A question for expats:
How do you deal with administrative tasks such as pension plans when switching companies / countries / bank accounts? I have moved a couple of times and I feel like my retirement contributions are somewhere lost in thin air.
Is there a platform allowing easier tracking? How do you all keep track of this? I suppose you can't mail in 40 years from now with 'hey, I want my retirement money'.
All info highly appreciated!

I'm 30 years old, WFH and have gained a good amount of weight over the past 2/3 years that I've had a very hard time losing. I'm 175 lbs I've done a bunch of blood work and the only issue found was that my vitamin D was at a 5.5. My hair has been thinning like crazy and I miss my self and my health. My doc put me on Lomaira (Phentermine) 8 mg and I will be starting it on Monday. I look forward to losing weight without hopefully any side effects of the medication. Hopefully it helps with focus to
