Get good with modeling complex excel Models. Understand the concepts of one time cost and recurring costs. Understand what are some major buckets of one time and recurring cost and their drivers. Understand the concepts of standalone cost. Understand the concept of synergies. If working on the buy side then think about taking seller cost estimates and think through how you can adjust them higher Most importantly, network with folks in pre deal and ask your pre deal managers for M&A strategy materials.

I’m trapped. My husband is a gaslighter. He pushes me to the point of no return. It exacerbates my depression and anxiety and I get so worked up that I can’t function. I can’t leave because we have a baby and I know he would take him from me. I have no one out here and I’m alone. I just have to put up with it. There are good times. But it’s hard to keep living like this.
