I meant advise, rather than tools

I used to watch old Suze Orman videos to learn the very basics. It’s not perfect advice but the concepts are generally correct and it’s entertaining

I have my Bachelors & I accepted a job at a starter up healthcare tech company which is growing. When I accepted the position and salary I honestly didn’t know what to expect or how to negotiate a salary pay. I accepted the job and salary because it was more than my old job and I needed to get my foot in the door. I’ve been here for 3 months and I have found out I am getting underpaid than what other project coordinators are getting paid. 10k less than them. How should I ask for a salary adjust

Hi! I’ve been a voluntary benefits agent with a few different carriers for 5 1/2 years. I’m currently the AE for 75+ accounts. I am completely burnt out on prospecting for new groups and wish to transition into a career without sales quotas. Could be in insurance or another industry. My favorite part of my role now is educating/counseling people on benefit options. I’m wondering if there are others who’ve been in the same boat. Open to any suggestions!

After John Oliver's statement on access to mental health services, I'm curious to see others' takes. Is our mental healthcare system broken? Is it inaccessible?

With Women’s History Month here and International Women’s Day next week, I’m seeing a lot of content about gender equality in the workplace on LinkedIn.

I wish we could call them all out. Is anyone else offended by these performative messages?
