Sharing a story.
I been at this start up since 2018. Then covid hit. That summer of 2020 I lost about 600.00 for the few events I signed up for. As an independent business trying to take off, I have tried a few different things, it's just not where I wish to be yet. I invision a lush holistic healing center where I can implement n execute the layout for my business plan. Life keeps handing me hurdles and delays. Just when I think I am getting somewhere, another detour shows up. This is okay. I keep dreaming
I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.
All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.
How should I approach her in the upcoming year?
A friend of mine is getting married on Friday in Mexico. I wasn’t feeling great so I took a Covid test and got a positive result. The flight I had booked leaves tomorrow so I’m obviously not going to go, I texted her that I unfortunately wouldn’t be able to go and she seems upset. I’m super upset that I can’t attend my friends wedding but I don’t know what else to do. I’ll still obviously send a gift and offer to take her out to dinner to celebrate later.
Covid exposed US health care and US government leadership for what it is. How people can continue to defend either is beyond belief.
How do I not get fired when my boss is on a witch-hunt? I’ve been applying and interviewing but I can’t leave until I have income bc Covid unemployment drained my savings.
AlixPartners 🐠, how easy is it to go from Europe to the US (NY, Boston or San Fran) for a) a permanent transfer and b) a 1 year assignment. All pre-covid

Anyone go to union station since the storming of the capitol? I have a friend staying with me from NYC and I’m worried about whether it’ll be safe for her to take the Amtrak (Friday at 6pm), thinking maybe she should stay another week with me to avoid any trump supporters and any potential risk of higher exposure to COVID from those unmasked people...
Hi ladies! We started this bowl because a few of us recently took new positions in the midst of COVID and are struggling with WFH. Here’s my story, please share yours! Just moved to a new country and joined a big local firm as a junior. I am a chronic procrastinator and I think it’s because I have low self-confidence, esp. with my writing style. Accountability is key to my productivity, and unless I’m micromanaged, I struggle to self-discipline. Will be sharing resources and tips in next post!
Does anyone have tips on negotiating a rent increase/lease renewal? I just got my renewal lease offer and it’s 56% higher than the net-effective rent I signed for in January. I’m obviously not expecting to pay peak-covid prices again, or get any months free next year.. but a 56% increase is a little much, no?
For those of you who work in emergency facilities, how has the COVID pandemic affected your volume? The types & severity of conditions?
I went from a group of 30 friends, to 10 friends, to only 2 friends and a gf. I feel like socially I’m nonexistent now. Started my career in a new city and during Covid and now that’s my only social interaction with WFH. They really failed prepping us on this in the post-grad survival guide lol.
If I’m leaving my current company for a new job and I really like the printer my current company gave me for WFH at the start of COVID, can I make them an offer to buy it from them?
Just had my raise/bonus discussion with the partner for my move from S3 -> M1 at PwC. The partner was unsure if PwC still gave a first year manager bonus. I know it used to be 20% bonus at the end of the first year. Does anyone know if that perk is still around or if COVID robbed me of that?PwC
A lot of companies pushed out press releases at the beginning of Covid wtating that they wouldnt lay anyone off. I bet they pedal back on those statements in 2 to 3 weeks because they anticipated this
1st covid case in my school...9 days ago only told to us today. Who’s to say there isn’t more? Who believes anything ever says anymore?
Interesting to see the widely disparate results coming out of different models on COVID...

Been with Deloitte for about a year as a consultant and currently interviewing for a Business Integrity role at Meta. From what I understand, the business integrity role is an internal consulting role for them. I’d like to not have billable hours anymore and more of a WLB but not sure if there any key differences between the two besides that. There is a pay increase but not really concerned about that. Any thoughts on this transition if I am offered?

Raised in a low income family, I saw my mom work multiple min-wage jobs, live paycheck to paycheck, sit at the table balancing the checkbook, stressing, hiding the fact that she was crying,. My resulting work ethic and emphasis on career has given me a job I'm excited about daily, an ok salary ( a bit below market rate, yet beyond anything I ever imagined) and my NW has passed $800k. I am thankful daily and have everything I need, but I feel guilty and selfish around my parents and siblings.
Did anyone else get a notice yesterday about expiring certifications as of June 1st? I heard rumor of this but I’m curious what the real impact will be. Is Oracle just pushing everyone to recertify?

Do Asian guys only date girls younger than themselves in real life? Is age a very critical consideration? It seems that families would be concerned about girls’ ages as they worry about her fertility

FYI, this Saturday, April 3 CAAMBA (Coalition of Asian American MBAs) will be hosting a virtual conference called “The Business of Asian America”. Kearney’s Managing Partner and Chairman, Alex Liu, will be one of the speakers. He and other consulting partners will cover career advancement for AAPIs in consulting (and other professions) in a broader lineup and agenda that day around Asian justice. For those with interest, here is a weblink ($10 per ticket, donated to Stop AAPI Hate etc): https://www.runtheworld.today/app/c/caamba
Anyone else feel like Kamala is not very interested in presenting herself as Asian? I can certainly understand the political rationale.
Do you think Asian consultants are paid less overall? Because we are model citizens and we don’t negotiate for more?

PSA - if anyone was thinking about traveling to Japan in the future, now would be a good time to think about dollar-averaging yen purchases. These rates haven’t been seen in 20+ years!
26 yrs old female married my husband 5 years ago while in college. He is 29 almost 30 now. He was struggling in school (went to school late, v low GPA) Lied to me couple times about his grades/graduation. And I just keep finding out he did not graduate. He spent 8 years in undergrad and “finished” in May 2020. Then I find out he has one class marked as incomplete. Very sweet guy other than that. He has tons student loan but is making money now. I’m heart broke and considering a divorce. Advice?
Just watched a documentary on Japanese elderly dying in poverty and alone, with police finding their bodies weeks later. Really hit me in the feels. Could this in the works for all of us as the world greys?
