How much of an issue is age when looking for a job at 57? How do you minimize the issue/spin it on a resume or during a call/interview?
Thoughts on delaying KG vs risking repeating it? My son (4, Aug bday) has never been in school but is so ready. Because of covid he never had preschool and we were horrible about teaching him stuff. I’m afraid he will struggle bc most kids have been to preschool or daycare. Thoughts? Also worst case - is it a bug deal if he has to repeat KG (versus me holding him back and putting him in Montessori).
We're always looking for new ways to make things easier for our customers and clients, but sometimes I just want to take a step back and breathe.
Hello Ladies! My post is a little longer and fishbowl has limited characters to post. So posted a picture instead. If you do get a chance to read through, would love to know your thoughts and learn. Anything that will help me from my feeling of being stuck will be a blessing. Also, looking for a mentor since I’ve never had one. Anyone ready to take on a mentee, please feel free to reach out to me. Have a beautiful rest of the week!

Today reminded why I used to hate making in-person appearances. An older male attorney sat down next to me on a bench and started making small talk. He then proceeded to make comments about my age “you’re about 20 something, right?” “Did you use a rolling backpack when you were in grade school?” and “what year did you graduate from high school?”. He had the audacity to ask me if I’m licensed to practice law. No, I just enjoy spending my Friday afternoons waiting around the courthouse wtf.
Hi everyone, a question to the tech industry at large.
Why are people so hesitant to hire disabled candidates?
I am a visually impaired practitioner in South Africa, with 7 years of experience, and as soon as recruiters or business owners hear/read that I'm disabled, the conversation gets awkward and I never hear from them again.

Anyone here has recently done laser hair removal? I had a consultation at LaserAway and they offered a package of 8 sessions to cover full leg + brazilian + underarms for $3.900. This is higher than what I was anticipating, but since their website has no info about prices is hard to know if this is a good deal or a total scam. Would love to hear how much you paid for a similar service. I’m in California if that helps! Thanks!!

At what point does it not make sense to buy/ build a bigger home? My husband dislikes our house immensely (was his with former wife) and wants to move. Only owes $180k on it, we’ve been together 6 years and thus I’d rather just remodel. It’s the only thing we disagree about - moving or staying. He doesn’t want to invest one more cent in this house.

Listening to my juniors today sounded like this.
My observation is that it is hard for consulting partners to land the quality public or private board roles everyone naturally targets. Despite there being a significant amount of exceptional talent that could be deployed, there is a big bias against consultants. Everyone wants “operators,” but I feel every board could also benefit from one current or former consulting partner. But sadly, that’s not the way the external world looks at things...
