If I would have charged an Uber to dinner, I charge mileage. I have to eat and I'm not paying for the luxory of driving to Chili's.

I charge the mileage between the client site/hotel each day as well as the mileage to/from the hotel/home... however, if I go to the gym or drive to grab dinner I don't charge mileage.

like

It's the difference - so if you drive 10 miles to the office and 8 to the client, you don't charge anything. If you drive 10 miles to your office and 30 to your client, you charge 20 miles.

I like the way you think, EY1.

Agreed with PwC 1. I actually had client request that I prove the mileage from my house. So I sent them the directions from Google maps.

Correct #3. I still charged the full amount though, hehe

PwC 2 is the mileage charged from your house or your local office?

I’m entry level (2020 grad). Used to work at an awesome startup before my current job in SaaS. I’ve been ramping at this co. though so I haven’t even gotten the experience yet I want on my resume. But I talked with the startup co-founder about rejoining. I was thinking part time to start, but he says there’s a high chance of a full time job for me there. Startup is 100% remote. My job at current company is client meetings and deliverables. How difficult would it be to work both at once?

Okay something kind of weird happened. Started a new project today with all new people. We met in person today and manager left for home after checkout around 5PM.

This girl screams at me in front of the whole floor “you are so fake!! you are not going to workout. you’re being fake.” I’m just standing there in shock like what? She’s like “what are you even going to do at the gym”…

I'm about $1000 PQP away from making it from United Gold to United Platinum for 2022. Is it worth it to upgrade my IAD-SFO RT flight to first class for $1000 RT to make it to the next tier?

I have just completed my first of 12 CIMA exams and I can’t seem to motivate myself to study at the expense of my side hustle when I don’t see myself in Consulting long term. I know I will gain some valuable lessons from CIMA for future ventures but it is a 3 year qualification alongside a demanding job with minimal downtime. Should I try and qualify or focus on saving money and my side hustles? Also, do I need to qualify to work as a consultant in Big 4 or can I opt not to sit exams?
