I got fed up with tax. The last few years, I noticed that I lost my belief/desire for this career due to the absurdity of it. The pandemic has just shown there's no need to make our lives easier. Government can pass massive and sudden reg changes and we should all be happy to play catch up in an abnormally stressful and agitated environment. Firms will be happy to continue working us to death as if we were just cogs in a machine.

Please...Wake me up when this all ends.

Look for industry jobs, where it’s still the same BS but at least a manageable schedule. US has quite a efficient financial system, where individual wealth are protected to the extent possible, be proud that you are part of the system.

PE investment 🐠, how often do you do CDDs to actually diligence the asset and you would be happy if the report is not fully positive vs. you have already decided to acquire the asset and just need a positive report to convince the IC and lenders?

Do PE companies know that many CDD partners would make their team’s life miserable if the story is not positive because they think investment teams won’t work with them as often if they raise red flags? All T2 firms do it, many MBB partners do it too.

I had a client presentation today. In my head, I thought that I did really bad and I was really nervous while presenting. My self talk afterwards was all negative. I had recorded it and was even dreading going back and listening to how poorly I performed because I thought it would further destroy my confidence. But I decided to do it anyway and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as I thought when I listened to it from a 3rd party perspective. Just thought I'd post this. (Contd)
