What blogs/books/resources should I seek out if I want to make the transition from passive trading (index funds/buy and hold blue chips) to more active trading (options, speculation, spending a few hours a week researching, etc)? I’m looking to turn my investing into more of a side hustle

Anyone else required to put together completely unrealistic timelines?

Upper management's direction is to put together the most aggressive deadlines we can. If we think a project will take 16 months, make the plan for 10 months then there's a chance we may launch in 13 months.

I understand that time to market is important in consumer product goods, but being constantly behind schedule and rushing everything is terrible for the team's morale.

When do you stop interviewing after getting a verbal offer that you verbally accepted (it may not be the dream job but checks right boxes—comp, benefits, good company), but you haven’t received the formal offer letter? Two other companies want to move me forward in the interview process. I already told one that I’ve received an offer and they are trying to move up an interview with the hiring manager. The other knew I was expecting an offer and just asked if I can do a 2nd interview this week.

What do you think of this deal? Is this too expensive? Anything I should be aware of?
