Go to real estate private equity conferences. There’s usually one in NYC once a year, and also in Newport RI—I missed that one, though. Also Urban Land Institute events. That is a great organization to join, though it concentrates a lot on development.

Good morning, hope everyone is having a great week! Does anyone have any advice on breaking into an analyst role? I am currently a Senior Customer Success Manager, with a background in Operations/Process and Project Management as well. I have always enjoyed the analysis pieces of my roles and would love to expand my skills to show how qualified for a position in data analytics. Thank you in advance for the help!

I need advice from the collective. It seems like there is a trend to sell wine in unique bottles. The only problem with this, those bottles will not fit into my wine fridge. Has anyone transferred wine to standard bottles and are you concerned about the wine one it hits the air? I’ve looked at vacuum stoppers but not sure if this is a good idea or not.
