Two approaches you can take - passive or direct. Direct: "you know, it bothers me you havent asked me how I am doing in a while." Passive: Just say how you are doing or jokingly say you are out of points before he even asks 🤣

Tell him. Be honest.

I know family relationships are complicated, but forget that. Anyone who only calls me when they need something isn't getting anything from me. This isn't that different from him calling up and asking you for money. After all, it's the hours you've committed to this (stressful, demanding) job that has allowed you to rack up these points.

Just say you don’t have any points.

A former Manager reached out about an e-commerce manager role for a relatively young company doing $35M/year. The role manages inventory on the site (20 skus), CRO, and Analytics plus the e-tailers (Amazon). They launched a site redesign and CVR tanked, but from what I gather they have too much of a focus on Paid Social and upper-funnel tactics. They’re hiring for a Demand Gen Analyst/Manager from a different manager. So, the roles report into different people. Question below:

Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
