It’s called “work” for a reason. Time to bear down, OP.

Try whitewater guide. Grimy and low paid but at least guests yell at me when they fall in the river. 👹

I caved an took 0.5 mg of xanax and drank a beer to cap off this hellish week (dw, I don't abuse either substance). Can't keep this stress up forever. Thankfully I've had some great interviews with companies this week and am looking forward to the outcome of those to find somewhere with a more manageable WLB and culture. Just felt like sharing. Best of luck to other fish out there who are struggling.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now. I want to get into management consulting and have been told my experience is too audit focused (been in audit for 5 years and now a manager). I’ve been told the next step in order to be “considered” is get your MBA from one of the top few ranking universities (I’m in Canada). Not sure if spending 100k on an MBA, for the possibility of getting into management consulting is worth it. Any way to increase my odds? I’m no longer a spring chicken..
