I dress cute and flirt with the guy behind me at Starbucks to get my iced coffee for free each morning, and then I invest the spare change in a diversified portfolio of penny stocks that pay dividends, and I'm maxing my Roth IRA at 24.

Works for me too and I'm a guy.

Get rich quick schemes have been around forever. Long before social media.

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?

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.
