I work full time in sales at a logistics company and I am currently in the process of starting my Amazon business and property management business. I already have 2 great mentors that have grown their successful Amazon business in just over a year and are being successful with their rental properties too. Any advice for a young entrepreneur about how to balance my time and effort?

Hi everyone, anyone has inputs on comp ranges?

I’m close to getting an offer, but starting to feel very anxious about a potential job change. I’m not happy in my current role (not a great product, people are awful to work with). But feeling nervous about something new also being bad.

2. Have you ever regretted the move? What have you done next?

People who are more asexual/aromantic, how do you explain it to people? People always ask if I’m LGB and I just respond that I’m none of the above. When I was in college, I knew I wasn’t hetero, but I wasn’t sure what I was. So I just did what everyone else did. Years later, I realized that I’m asexual but people hear things about me from my past and ask if I’m LGB. Do you just say you’re LGB and move on? I don’t feel like giving a 30 minute lecture every time someone asks.

And, unfortunately, this doesn't work all the time
