Good day all! I am seeking successful female attorneys ~ those who've paved their own paths ~ to tell their stories, of what’s possible, to inspire other females ~ those who want to bail on big law, grow their own law practices, focus on a family, or even seek something... well... totally different for her career...for my podcast. The podcast is conversational, not formal interview style. DM if you have a story to tell, or if you know someone who does!

To my post-MBA fishes: currently studying for business school and plan to apply for MBA. Hearing a ton about how the true value of an MBA is in networking (AKA happy hours, drinking, etc). I’ve struggled a bit with weight and self image issues in the past. I’ve made great fitness progress and don’t want to give that up. But I am concerned that i won’t vibe well with MBA culture because of this and I won’t get the most out of it. Can anyone relate or provide a bit of their own wisdom? Thanks!

Anyone know how product managers are positioned at Apple? I haven’t heard too much about PMs there compared to at other FAANG. Is it “true” product management, agile, or more like project managers?
