Studying FAR with a 3 month old at the moment, and believe me it’s such a grind where I lose motivation and hope for the exam, and on top of it all, I keep on forgetting stuff that I learnt earlier in the modules.

Let’s hope we both get this beast of the exam out of our way soon. :/

It’s not easy. Wake up early, get some time in. Study over lunch. Pick a weekend day and get up early and get a good chunk of time in. It’ll be worth it when it’s over and you never have to do it again!

I work for a tech company that pays 100k tc plus 50,000 stock options. I have great work life balance, work 4 days per week on a 32 hour schedule plus it’s remote. Lately, I’ve been feeling like the compensation is on the lower end and just wanted to see if it’s in line with industry standards

About to begin the recruitment process for BCG and am coming in from EY where I’m currently a manager. I have pretty good work life balance: 8 am to 7 pm and on fridays, I can sign off at 3 pm. People are great at EY but I know the work could be more interesting at BCG and also greater pay. Currently making $150k. Should I just stay put? What are the big draws of moving to BCG? I hear it’s crazy hours too…

Here’s how to withdraw your funds from FTX

Hedge Withdrawals

Open a position on FTX and an opposing position on another exchange (perhaps Binance for the irony) for the same financial exposure. If the position on FTX profits, keep trading. As the position on FTX experiences losses, the opposing position on the other exchange profits. Keep it up until you’ve depleted the funds on account at FTX the close your opposing position. You’ve successfully withdrawn funds using a hedge. You’re welcome.
