I really don't like that question...but if you have to answer it, I usually talk about the work they do (how it's what you want to be doing) and the ways in which the company's values align with your own, and how the position is what you're looking for in the next steps of your career

Has anyone successfully negotiated a title? I was looking for Senior Manager positions but applied for some Mgr positions too. I’m up for promo next year at my current job as well. The current industry offer meets my comp expectation but planning to see if they would bring me in as a senior manager. There isn’t a set hierarchy for the team as of right now as they are building the team and I’d be reporting to a senior executive. Any talking points/tips that might help me negotiate?

Time to declutter! Getting rid of stuff you don't need is proven to help reduce anxiety. Where do you start? Grab a box or trash sack and designate one for donation and one for trash. Do this at the beginning of the week and commit to filling both up by the end of the week. Post a before and after pick. This challenge is worth 5 points total.

How hard is it to get a tech cofounder? I want to change the way the world lends when crypto is used as collateral. MVP involves building out api end points, building a portal and decision engine. No front end apps or web portals. I have a deck and have had meaningful conversations with money but it’s too expensive to buy everything from scratch to get started. Perhaps an outside team commercializing and scaling a prototype will be much more economical. Feedback?

I need some help navigating a conversation with my boss. I have been with our brand for 7 years (been with the same boss) but just came up on my 1 year anniversary with our corporate office last week. I had my review and received 4 out of 5 points. I received zero salary increase because I got a $2,000 bump earlier this year after they terminated an employee and I took on some additional tasks. Is it wrong of me to still think I should have received an additional bump?
