Someone who tends to make sexist remarks (without realizing that they are sexist) used an analogy in a client meeting - statistics are like a mini skirt. They reveal a lot but hide the crucial things. Hopefully anyone reading this knows why this is problematic. I’m keen on raising an objection but unsure how. I want to come from a place of building awareness. Any tips?

Two of my really good friends at work have had their work dry up in the past few months (because of the Rona).

How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?

I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.

Pondering. How many creatives struggle with the imposter syndrome.
