Q&A with Jessika Lora - March 27

I’m so excited for this - thanks for your time Jessika. I’d love to know what made you decide that it’s time to leave Deloitte and go to eBay and then start carforce.

For me it was about the pursuit of spending my time on projects that mattered to me. I wanted to innovate, both at Deloitte and eBay. As I was saying in another post, there’s a restlessness threshold that you hit after which point every day that you aren’t pursuing your vision feels INTOLERABLE. You may notice yourself picking little turf battles, feeling depressed, irritable, and under-appreciated. I felt this way just before I left Deloitte and just before I left eBay. It’s totally fine to feel this way for a day or two, maybe even a whole week, but if it becomes your daily norm for more than a month GET OUT. Humans are meant to be happy. Find what makes you happy and pursue it vehemently.

A potential collaborator with a similar skill set and experience said (during negotiations with me) they would charge a 15% premium to me on top of their fees if they were positioned as part of my company vs as their own company. Meaning they would be pushing that fact and their company name with the client unless I laid them this fee. I found the client and sold in the project without their help though my contacts. I have never heard of this. We are both solo operators. Thoughts?

Thinking of moving to a city with a much higher cost of living. Deloitte does not adjust salary at all, right? So even though I live in Chicago, I make around the same as my NYC and SF counterparts?

Long story short: I work for a small healthcare consulting firm. Since COVID, I was going to the office once a week, every Wednesday. Today, I have put on my 2 weeks because I accepted an offer from a big 4. During my last 2 weeks, I had planned to see my family for the first week, and go to the office on my final week. Also today, my boss asks me to come in the office everyday next week. Should I say I don’t feel comfortable and just don’t go?What’s the worst it happen? Get fired lol
