I have a long flight coming up (with two layovers, and one of the flights is 8 hours long — red eye). My daughter is 2yo and I’m debating whether we should take the car seat with us or not.

Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son.

What an inspirational mother.

I am more interested in this private equity group as I would get to build a whole team and really make a retail strategy but they are newer so I am unsure the stability. Thoughts on working for a PE?
