To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

I need to learn a new way to speak about process improvement and efficiencies. I’ve learned I have a knack for this but it seems like such common sense to me that I struggle articulating this to people who just don’t get it. I have no certifications and have no interest in getting one… Also, can you actually teach process improvement to people who don’t get it or is this just a DNA thing. Help? :)
Best (worst) mistake you've seen? Q&A during quarterly earnings call in ER, intern doesn't know how to mute so puts tape on mic. Loud ass crinkling during questions. Sr analyst curses out intern

When based in a city like NYC with multiple hubs, how do you think about the airline to chase loyalty on?
My three year old now doesn’t go to bed until around 9 pm (and gets up around 7/730 am which we prefer… don’t want to move that schedule). I used to squeeze in extra work from 8-930/10 but it’s no longer feasible. How do you manage? I see my options as… 1) find a job that is more 9-5 2) start waking up early to work in the morning (not a fan as I think sleep is very important) 3) trade nights with husband where every other night I work vs him while the other hangs with the kid after 8
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
I’ve been dealing with a lot in a few aspects of life - family, breakup, and work pushing me into an undesirable role…it has started to exhibit in physical symptoms like depression, insomnia, and fainting spells.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!

Anyone else feeling like picking money over creative and craft? Might be a career killer but how bad is it to chase the money and go in house?
