I think it’s easy to get in a rut in your current client project or practice and plateau in learning. So for this year, I’m prioritizing self learning and would love any insights or advice you have on the following related to strategy consulting (or life in general!):

1. Best book recommendations
2. Best external trainings that are market relevant
3. Anything else that has personally made you sharper

For Plaintiff PI Lawyers, what is your "pitch" when you speak a potential new client who is looking for an accident attorney? Especially if you're a younger attorney, who can't make the "I have over 20-30 years of experience, have seen it all, won X number of cases and recovered Y amount of compensation for my clients" pitch. I explain the process, say that my firm has an amazing team, that I will keep them updated every step of the way. Is there anything else I could say to land the client?

staff 1 here - I'm currently only on 1 small engagement and honestly content with my team/client (so far). But many of my peers are on big named or multiple clients and sometimes I feel like I'm behind? I don't really care for politics nor do I want to get involved, and I'm not trying to be a high performer at all, but should I be more proactive in asking for opportunities with bigger clients? Sorry if this sounds silly lol

Hello people of San Diego! Would love to hear how y’all are affording to live here comfortably. Please state your company, position, TC, YOE, and do you have a side hustle? I’ll start - I’m an advisor in Wealth Management with TC of $70k, 3 YOE and no side hustle. Among other things, rent just jumped from $2500 to $3700 for 2 bedroom and areas were looking at. I’d like to “make it” here but if it means switching career to make money I’d like to get an idea to make the right job change.

Need some advice. I was asked to apply for a senior digital marketing specialist role (the lowest title I’ve applied for, looking mid-senior level). I applied and they offered me the position, but are telling me I need to start out at the regular specialist level. To me, if I interviewed for the senior title, and I can clearly do the qualifications needed since you offered me the role, I should have that title. Thoughts? Supposedly the reg. specialist role is senior in their org. structure.

Anyone day trade large capital on 1-2 stocks targeting 1% gain? The risk to reward is crazy but the thought would be to stick to high value stocks that easily move 1%+ daily. I know the general rule is to risk < 1% of portfolio/trade, but seeing TSLA and NFLX price movements I’m tempted to go in 50k on a dip and set a limit order. I’m thinking worst case of not recovering from a dip would be that I’d own a lot of one stock?
