I also have friends who are driving Uber as their primary job 🤷🏻‍♂️




Would be keen to know just how “unicorn” they are. Unless your friends are the PayPal mafia, seems unlikely. Remember that the skills you have are tangible and, as a small business or start up owner, you really don’t get paid out for years and often make less in oppty cost to consulting. Not to mention owners usually take 5-11% of company post cost revenue which means your friends better be running some massive companies to make cash


Well all around 5B valuations whicb have been publicly announced in media so as unciorn as it gets


Your a senior manager making $150k? That’s your first mistake.


Huh…maybe I don’t want to do FP&A after all


Damn bro I wish I was making anywhere near even 100k rn..


Are their startups making money? I know lots of broke business owners who work non-stop. Its not appealing to me.


Better to be the humble one than the hot shot in your group.
