Don’t use pesticides

Yeah, don’t water your own plants. Must use commode.

I try to go organic as well but somehow or another I’ll get an infestation of some kind or blight / disease. I’ll do the best I can but when it’s getting tough I’ll spray the plant (never the fruit) with a water / dawn dish soap mixture. In 6 years of doing it I’ve only managed to go one season of pure organic. I’ve lost 2 entire seasons to blight. I’ve tried planting in the ground as well as lofted potted planters. The planters did a lot better than the ground.

I use neem oil for pesticide. I was trying to find something natural that wouldn’t kill bees but would take care of other bugs/pests and it’s worked well

I would look into permaculture if I had a garden. You can grow some of your own food too.

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:

I don’t have any consulting experience, maybe just a few cases at school. I don’t consider myself aggressive, I’m more of a laid-back person. Im hard working and don’t mind working high hours. The reason I want to make the switch is 1) I think consulting work is generally more interesting; 2) more exit opportunitie
