I'm thinking about starting a local small business advising side-gig. Currently, I'm associate scientist with a background in quality control and process development. I'm also halfway through an online MBA (say what you want, I'm learning a lot and enjoying the process).
My target clients would be small business owners that are passionate about what they're doing, but just don't know how to run a business well.
Has anyone tried something like this before? Tips?
McKinsey internal offer. Am level before partner at small boutique firm. Work in tiny but hot area (non-strategy). No desire to make partner as I don’t enjoy selling. Fewer YOE than most at my level. Exp mostly at small companies except for a B4/ACN. No MBA, masters from an Ivy but a less competitive program. Offer is similar to other industry offers in the past but haven’t looked recently. Current TC is on the high end in consulting but have had similar offers.
TC ~$290k (current) vs ~$160 McK

Would you recommend dropping out of an MHA program from a non-target school (1 year in) and just doing well on the GRE to get into a top MBA?
I planned to go to medical school after my undergrad, but ended up cancelling my matriculation due to mental health reasons. Panicked and enrolled in an MHA (it doesn't teach any hard skills). I don't want to be mediocre, and I've been getting rejected by a lot of companies. I'm worried about my future. Recommend dropping?

Please help me out.
New grad currently in a Program Manager role related to manufacturing at Apple. I have a Product Manager offer from a legacy tech company (think Cisco, Oracle, etc). Should I stick at Apple and only be willing to switch for a FAANG+ Product Manager role/try to switch to Product at Apple or go ahead and start getting experience in Product Management? I know if I decided to do an MBA working at Apple would be powerful to have on my resume for admissions.

Very grateful to be choosing between the MIT MBA and Harvard MPP. Sadly, no aid from either so no dual degree for me. Which should I go with? Post grad goal might be impact investing, or Dalberg type consulting, or working in sustainable agriculture-tech/emerging market fintech.

A friend of mine received an offer from HSBC (entry level) but they delayed the start date indefinitely due to HR and manager being on holiday. It’s been 3 months now since he was supposed to start, and now they are ghosting him.
Is there anything he can do? He lost on other offers, and his financial situation is not looking too great.
The IMDB rating was around 3.2 even before the movie had released lol. I have no interest in watching ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. I know, it will probably (key word “probably”) be an average movie, at best. I was never even a huge fan of the original either.
But this collective effort to bring down a movie is just..funny. Like at least watch the movie before you trash it lol.

My four year old I don’t think really gets that women have jobs. I think this is mainly an artifact of the pandemic in that I have been on leave and she hasn’t been going out and about seeing people doing things. We try very hard to emphasize equality and ambition - her older sister doesn’t have this problem at all. Anyway, what are some books or other media that you may have found helpful to showcase women in particular achieving things?
Does anyone have a contact at Hermes? My sister has remained in complete remission for five years and was declared cancer free by her doctor.
