Blew mine at the Westin Whistler this year. Totally worth it. Westin Beaver Creek is also great if you want to stay in the US. Great areas even if you’re not into snow sports!

What are the ledger growth expectations (dollars or %) at your firm this year? I’m finishing the first year as a new tax partner (not B4).

Now there’s pressure to add 500k and grow to 3.2million by end of 2nd year. Feels like a big number for a second year tax partner.

Any tips on how to figure out what one *really* want to do for their career?

Any tips for introspection or how to navigate this weirdly defeating feeling are very welcomed :)
