It's summer time for most of the continental US OP. Go outside and enjoy the weather. Studies show that a 30 minute walk can reduce the likelihood of depression. Also what's your side hustle? Start pursuing that or make your next move :)! Good luck with the new gig search obviously reach out to your network and what not. But enjoy the downtime too! Smell the roses 🌹.

Lazy is a word. Apply for jobs? Tuh. Who does that? Don't you get recruited by friends and former associates or clients into opportunities because they know you and know you can get it done?

What are the best exit opps in terms of total comp in the Chicago area? Most great offers I see on here are for the SF/NYC areas.

I’m honestly open to anything, but do have an interest in VC and FinTech. TIA!
