Say you have $1M available to invest in cash. Would it be possible to join the fund raise of a PE/VC/HF? Or is that not enough? If so how does one get exposure to such asset classes?

I mean, in theory yes, but realistically no (at least not for a top fund). Could go find a wealth manager, or look for an ETF for listed PE for instance.

I think there’s like a legal $5M minimum before you can with HF/PE firms

Not really. Depends on fund. Some funds have as low as 250k limit for investing too. I know few funds that do 250k minimum. DM me if you need details

I have an awesome opportunity to apply for a promotion that would give me additional responsibilities but a faster track to leadership. I am also 10 weeks pregnant with my first confirmation appt next week. I want to go for it but feel bad about applying when I would go on mat leave in about 6-7 months, pending everything is on track with my first appt. Wanting advice on whether to apply or not and whether to disclose the pregnancy?

My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events.

Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
