Clearwater is the best beach I’ve been to in Florida

Growing up in NC, my favorites were Jekyll island, Hilton head, Wrightsville

Florida 🐠 so a bit bias: Siesta Beach in Sarasota Florida, and Clearwater Beach in Clearwater Florida are both great. There is also a great state park/beach near Kennedy Space Center called Playalinda Beach.

Destin Beach, FL. I would Recommend searching air BNB. I'm actually going at the end of July for a week and it was much cheaper booking a place through air BNB than a hotel or rental agency.

Another vote for the Florida Gulf coast beaches! Clearwater is a bit bigger, more touristy. Consider Siesta Key, Longboat or Anna Maria for a quieter, more laid back experience. Sarasota is not Gulf front so you could stay there but you’d have to drive out to the islands to reach the beach. You can also consider the Outer Banks which is much more wild and natural than most beach destinations in Massachusetts, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland. I like Corolla and Duck.

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.

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?

Anyone else guilty of poisoning new hires viewpoints?? Some of em just asked me so many questions and I wanna be honest with them. Like sorry Timmy pls don’t ask me “what happens when ‘politics’ come up in the work place” on a call of 30 other new hires next time so I don’t have to say that “we basically let our bosses say that we don’t talk about politics then he proceeds to talk about politics and then we talk about politics”. (The hiring committee person literally cut me off after this 🤣)

Livid & need to vent. Had a call with a client, I am the attorney that manages their cases. A male attorney was on the call with me as well. I try to explain something to client multiple times and he keeps cutting me off to explain his question again (even though I am answering the question but for the interruptions). Male attorney jumps in and explains exactly same of what I am saying, male client listens intently, no interruptions, then essentially ignores me the rest of the call. Raaaaage 🤬

BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
