Avoid investing in coins looking at online post by random guys. If they are shilling constantly then most likely they bought it at very cheap price and ready to sell once innocent followers buy in. STAY AWAY from SHILLERS and high circulating supply coins. Do your own research and hold onto those if you believe in the project Not everyone makes money catching green candles.

6 months in at a new firm. 4th year attorney. Completely new practice area from what I did previously. The partner often sends the random potential client call ins my way. Many times, they have questions related to things I’ve never done and he only provides guidance if I can pull him away from something else to ask. I’m super low on hours but feel that it would be ethically wrong to take on a case involving an issue Im totally unfamiliar with and not confident handling. Wrong approach?

Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too

I put in my resignation earlier this week and the district just told me, it will only be approved once someone else hired. I feel like that is silly especially because as of contracting Covid I’m definitely not okay with being back in the classroom. That could be two weeks or three months. I want to cry right now. I can’t stand the education system. Is there a way around this?

Hey y’all. Third year associate at a boutique PI firm. I am the only female and only associate of a firm of four other male partners. I am finding that time and time again, I am outcast and put into the staff category ie (partners ask me to schedule depositions, do not ask me to be involved in case strategy meetings). We’ve also recently gotten a new young female firm manager who they treat like gold. Is paid only $10k less than me without a law or college degree, twenty days off a year, . . .

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
