I didn’t know consulting was an industry till a year after I graduated and started googling what jobs fit what I wanted. The funny part was that I was a financial analyst managing sows for staff aug resources lol

Between the CFA, CFP, GMAT and bschool this stack for me is literally a few feet over my head

I would give a lot to read those books

All yours for $200k
