It sounds like it will give YOU confidence. HOWEVER, how many of your clients will be able to tell you what that designation actually means? NONE. IMO, make Jones pay for it in a few months. Keep DKing until then and carry on. It can wait 4 fucking months and save you $800 in the meantime. You're welcome...


I don't have the AAMS and I'm 7 yrs in and it hasn't mattered. I plan to do the CFP within a year


Nobody knows or cares if you are an AAMS pro. The only designation generally recognized by the public is the CFP. Do some more prospecting with that money. Have some seminars. Buy a list. Buy some nice new shoes. If you want to do it now, call someone at home office and see if you can get an exception to take it early. You never know, they might do it.

My doctor recommends I try therapy, but I don’t know what therapy will realistically accomplish. There are probably also more efficient ways to deal with mental health. Am I wrong? Is therapy more than laying on a couch, spilling your guts out to a PhD who charges by the hour?

How concerned are you about inflation? We have 70% savings rate and 50% of our expenses are housing / utilities of which the largest part is rent which is a fixed contract (no CPI escalation, no automatic increases, paying same rent for 4 years). No car as we are living in a large city. So if I look at the components of CPI and what’s rising I am feeling pretty „good“ about it. The one thing I am „worried“ is asset inflation but obviously that benefits me directly. What am I missing?


What are some of your favorite interview questions you have been asked or that you like to ask?


Was interviewing with a firm and soon after receiving an offer, learned of bad culture/toxic partners in the practice group from a couple of associates who recently lateraled from the firm. I turned the offer down. A partner that I clicked with while interviewing reached out asking me why I turned down the offer. Should I be honest and relay what I heard?

Hi consultants! I’m starting very soon in a boutique consultancy in their benchmarking practice. I will be in a very small team because I’m joining a new office location of the firm. From recruiting, I could tell that they have a lot of work in their pipeline and that I will have my hands full right off the bat. Would you have any advice for a newbie? This will be my first full-time role ever and most of my relevant experiences or knowledge comes from my masters or bachelors I would say. Thanks!


Serious question: Anyone work in or know of companies that do not have a overtly leftist culture?


Anybody else permanently work from home, prior to covid (and will be post covid) I’ve worked from home for the last 5 years, and don’t see myself ever stepping foot in anyone’s office ever again. I wouldn’t take a new job unless they would let me stay 100% remote


Los Angeles folks who are not allowed to WFH, given the recent “safer at home” order, is anyone going into the office tomorrow?
