There are good mental health days when you're between gigs and there are bad days. Today was a bad day.
I would like to start adding in insurance sales to compliment my investment business. What companies have the most competitive whole life policies as far as cash value is concerned?
One of my best friends was just diagnosed with bipolar 2. She works at an agency in Tokyo, but in Japan it's hard to get mental health treatment because it isn't really recognized like in the U.S. Anyone have advice either on how you cope with bipolar 2, and/or sought help in a place where mental illness is entirely taboo?
The lack of appropriate PPE affected my health in other ways. I have a latex sensitivity and we ran out of Nitrile gloves. For awhile I had to take an antihistamine to keep from having full on hives.
Anyone working at ACN Federal within MC Health? Wondering what it’s like and if it is interesting work. Just got an offer from them. Seems there will be a lot of growth and business development work.
Some shmuck hit my car while parked and didn’t leave a note. Filed an insurance claim and will obviously have to pay my deductible ($500). Rates won’t go up right? In California if that matters.

I am a third year associate in insurance coverage and am struggling to see how I will be able to develop a book of business when the clients are only looking to work with partners and have established rules about how to get on their panels. Any suggestions on how to set myself up to make inroads? I recognize this is still likely to be a couple years down the line.
At some point, people will say "Fine. I sign away my right to a doctor, I'm going outside" At that point, Universal Healthcare, and current Insurance System, dies. They won't pay premiums.
Life insurance: do I need it? Not married (live with LT boyfriend - renting), own 2 investment properties, no kids, early 30s, in Canada. No “dependents”, and my family could pay for final expenses. I’m healthy and insurance is cheap. Should I just get it? Any extra $ if I pass suddenly could go to younger sibling/ family / charity, or to pay off mortgages. What am I missing?
My brother (only sibling) has schizophrenia and is bipolar. I’ve had mental health issues and am terrified of slipping into schizophrenia (10% chance empirically). Anybody else similar and scared?

Not sure if it's just for recent immigrants or American born Asians, but what I've noticed is East and South East Asians don't fit well in the bro culture common among management as you move up the ladder. That certainly is a factor in how you get along with leadership and sell work through networking
Any one considered doing part time Consulting engagements via Services like MBO, Catalent GLG etc. Seems like a good way to stay in the game earn some extra income but do it on an Ad hock basis.
Maybe a dumb question, but do people have jobs while doing a full time MBA? Specifically M7 - Im trying to understand how much to save for living expenses prior and just wondering if any fish knew what income potential there was during school

Are resume writing services worth it? I wasn’t all too happy with my resume and had a free review. They raised some good points, thinking of a hiring a professional resume writer to for a rewrite.
4YOE @Amazon & trying to lateral to a similar role @FAANG. Have my undergrad GPA (3.8/4) on resume from top 15 school but colleague says to take it off (looks silly). If it’s a good school & high GPA, why ever take it off your resume? Even if 10 YOE...can’t hurt?
Getting into consulting (MBB) seems easier than getting a choice position in industry (e.g. Corporate strategy director).
Today I was giving my toddler a snack — apples and peanut butter. She asked for more PB on her apple; I gave her more PB and then she yelled “Noooo peanut butter!” How motherhood is like consulting...
