I got contacted by someone at guidepoint offering me consulting work for several hundred dollars an hour. Never heard of the company and seems questionable? Has anyone worked with them before? The message they sent me is in the comments.

It’s legit

It's legitimate, I've worked with them before. It's generally just a call or two to get your insights on a specific topic

I didn't accept the compensation, so I'm not sure. They had an option it could be a charitable contribution so I did that and it was sent via a direct deposit to them.

Guidepoint is like GLG and Alphasights. Theyre an expert network but also leverage the experts within their network as consultants for their clients, depending on what the client's needs are.

The offer is not for consulting work, just an expert phone call.

I’ve done it before. It’s legit. They offered payment in the form of an Amazon gift card.

Good to know. They asked for an account number to transfer the payment to. I am not sure I am comfortable with that…

I work for Guidepoint Global, a leading research firm (www.guidepoint.com). I wanted to reach out to you to see if you would be interested in taking part in a paid phone consultation with our client. Our client is currently undertaking a project regarding the physiotherapy space, and would like to speak with experts to understand level of fragmentation of care providers; key pain points for physiotherapists as they think about care delivery, key considerations in selecting a practice management software etc. During my research, I came across your profile and I believe that you would be a great fit for this project. The call will last 45-60 minutes, no preparation is required and you can set your own rate (~avg. USD 300/h) As a matter of policy, our clients will not be asking you to discuss your current employer, nor will you be asked to discuss any confidential or material non-public information. You can also review the project and questions here:

Solid insights. Thank you everyone.

On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm.

I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues.

I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊

Just need a place to vent. I'm a solo parent& while I love my kid, I'm just so dang tired. Most of the families I know have a SAHM& dad supports the family& rather affluent lifestyles.

I feel like I have to be breadwinner dad, mom like I don't have a job, save for college, retirement& prepare to care for aging parents. I feel smothered& resentful; it's starting to show & I feel so guilty &ashamed.

Hi I am a new teacher intern hired yesterday. I will be teaching second grade. School reopens on Aug 17. I do not have my own materials. I do not know what materials are there in my classroom. What should I buy? I will be talking to the Principal on Monday to find out more. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. Any tips and suggestions for me would be helpful.

When logging time & PTO in the same week do you use only enough hours to meet the 40hrs a week? Or do you at least equal 8hrs a day? For ex, if you work 9 hrs M-W and take Th & F off with 8hrs = 43hrs
