Look at the big picture.

Dow only down 600 points from ATH.
SP500 only down 120 points from ATH.
NASDAQ only down 1,000 points from ATH.

Peak prior to COVID-19 / Close Today
(approximate numbers)

Dow $29,398 / $31,402
SP500 $3,380 / $3,829
NASDAQ $9,731 / $13,119

The sky isn’t falling yet.

London hotel help. Trying to decide between the Millennium Glouster St in Kensington vs. the Westin London city which is close by the Millennium walking bridge.

Curious if those who have done the tourist thing in London with kids have opinions. Thanks.

I moved in with my SO when covid started! We have challenges with our separate careers.

I am seeking advice. I have currently taken my passion for fitness/nutrition and started coaching a few clients as a side hustle. I have a unique medical background that can help me be relatable and knowledgable for clients. What advice can someone give for the best ways to market myself? Because of my medical background, I invasion helping clients who struggle with illnesses. Is this too narrow of a client list. Should I be more open to helping everyone or stick with what I know?

My husband has been a restaurant manager for over 10 years (GM for 5). He worked at one place for 8 years and another for 5 (wasn’t a manager at first at the other place) - so he’s consistent and dependable. But he’s ready to keep normal hours and transition into corporate…. But it’s been tough with no “relevant” experience.

Hey everyone,

I recently started a job as an outbound, enterprise BDR.

I have no previous experience with sales, but I did really well at first. In my first two months I was at the top of my sales team, and one of the top performers in the national sales org for dials/arr.

I hit a block, and now I can't seem to get passes at all. My effort hasn't changed. But I can't get meetings scheduled.

Has anyone experienced hitting a block like this? How do you overcome it?
