I want to study for the GMAT and have business school as an option. I got accepted into a MBA Forte Launch fellowship. Should I inform my manager so that I can make time for my classes?

Or is this shooting myself in the foot for future promotions? 😅

Totally depends on your relationship with your manager. I had a similar situation 4 years back and plugged away after work.. didn’t tell my company my plans for business school until I needed their recommendation letters.

Fellow 🐟 designers/developers - what's your take on direct involvement with / leading customer comms in projects?

- Do you like having that opportunity to engage with the customer?

I am looking to get a new car just because I was given my current car and it is not something I would have picked myself. I used to have a Honda element and I loved that everything was plastic and it was a simple car. I also loved the boxy design of it. I really want a jeep wrangler because right now, I only have one child (age 6). I want to get one now before I decide to have more kids which won't be for many years if I do.

I'm just worried I would be making a mistake. Thoughts?
