My wife setup an introductory meeting with a T2 strategy firm's managing partner. She doesn't work with him but has a friend who does, which is how this was setup. I'm trying to transition from implementation (10 years) to strategy so I really want to impress. What talking points and questions would you all recommend?
Received and eval that I disagree with some points pretty strongly. Mad at myself that I’m afraid to say much I’m positive it will end up hurting more than solving.
I want to go with my spouse on a wonderful beach vacation. Our honeymoon (almost two years ago now) was cancelled due to covid, and I had booked us at the St Regis Bora Bora on points. I have been unable to get that deal again, and feel very annoyed. We live on the west coast on the US and would like to go somewhere that is less than 6 hrs of travel, that is romantic, private, quiet, beachy, relaxing. Any resort, boutique hotel or perhaps vacation rental recommendations under $800 a night?

As I had mentioned on Mon, we had our 100 point rebound in S&P/ES trades this morning at 3320, up from the 3220 lows on Monday. Technically, we came within 1.5 points of our 50% Half Way Back short, meaning we could drop and sell off towards our 3170 targets. However, market is still green, so it wouldn't be surprising to see a bit more of a rally or a need to test that 3320-3340 level again. Shorts are in play. Watch AAPL for clues as to the rally or failure and the next short leg.

How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)
