Can I ask a question! I’ve been with the same company for nearly 8 years. I’ve been offered another job with a company in the same line of work. Same money but hours better suited to my needs - my company refused to entertain the idea of flex working for me because 2 people already avil of it in a business with 7 people. Now the new business has 5 people and can accommodate. Is my employer being unfair and keeping from me what I’m worth??

If you didn’t come from a quant background, how did you get over analytics anxiety? What are ways for me to safely learn and practice my excel/modeling/quant communication skills? I’m always beating myself up (and making errors) when doing analytics on a time crunch.
I also worry about how I could be perpetuating gender stereotypes by being the girl on the team who is “more qualitative than quantitative.” For context, my background before consulting was nonprofits.

What do you call it when you buy a bunch of self-help books and are slow to read them (feel like I don’t have time, don’t know where to start because I have so much to fix), have a thousand self-help to-dos like meditating, exercising, stretching, pursuing various hobbies and struggle to stay consistent, and then shame yourself for not doing all of the above…what do you call that. Asking for me.

Does it bother you when someone you care about won't let you treat them (like on special occasions such as birthdays and stuff)? I don't know why it's upsetting me so much, and I'm trying to figure out what the root of my issue is. I'm getting overly emotional about it. It makes me feel like I'm making it about me vs. them, which is not what I want to do at all. On the contrary, I want them to enjoy whatever I treat them to, but this is all backfiring because I can't control my emotions.
