Freelance rate being offered is exactly half what my rate is currently. How do I ask them if they can match my current?
I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this.
Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
Please help which ones better to join?

I’m Asian, grew up poor, was running the cashier for my parents takeout biz starting 6th grade.
I learned the hard way not to put my race down on my college applications.
I was lucky enough to score Accenture consulting out of my non-target.
Now I’m listening to my coworker friends (Hispanic and Black) who grew up rich in NJ and CT, refer each other to diversity programs that help with MBA admissions and provide scholarships, talking to each other about the money they get to save from it.

I’m getting more racist as I get older.
I’m a male non-black POC and I’ve been struggling with racism as I’m getting older. I care deeply about equality in the office space, diversity & inclusion and ensuring URMs receive the level of support they need.
But outside the office I’m growing more scared of black males in particular. I’m becoming the classic white guy that crosses the street early, gets scared on the sidewalk, etc. I feel incredibly guilty but I don’t know how to fix it. Help?

Pros/cons of Big 4 on resume vs MBB vs boutiques?
With Deloitte outranking McKinsey on the Forbes consulting list, doesn't this imply Big 4 brand recognition opens more mainstream doors beyond our typical consulting bubble and alumni?
While uninformed, it just seems to be a function of scale. Big 4 are household names given their prominence across every type of professional service.
