Investor relations??

I was hoping some of the more-experienced CRE people here could shed some light for me. I currently work on the CRE debt side for a bank (2 years) and have realized that my strengths may lie more towards transacting with people and developing relationships versus, say the technical analysis/underwriting/evaluating that goes along with commercial real estate. I realize banks have roles which encompass these personality skills (loan originators) but I think I would be able to really maximize my value in other areas.

Coffee Is For Closers

Mod Note (Andy): this post originally went up on 10/21/13.

You think I'm f*cking with you? I am not f*cking with you. I have been noticing a very cancerous trend in this country. A trend that has even leaked onto WSO in many aspects, which is arguably filled with very ambitious and hardworking individuals, as we begin to see a lot of younger people entering the workforce or get a year or two of work experience under their belt.

That trend, of course, is that everyone is special. Everyone deserves to go to college, everyone deserves a good job, everyone simply deserves. It's total bullshit and it is a horrible trend that our parents' terrible generation has instilled in kids born in the 80s and 90s - the same generation that is now running this very country straight into the ground.

For those of you unaware, CFIC is from the movie Glengarry Glen Ross - a movie about sales guys. The truth bomb gets dropped during Alec Baldwin's eight minute speech in the movie and it has been one of the sayings I have strived to abide by since I was old enough to understand what it means. In its original context, it essentially meant you are not allowed to drink the company's coffee and waste its money if you aren't bringing in revenue. Translated further to everyday life, if you aren't adding value or cannot add value, nothing should be handed to you for free. So this brings me full circle to my original point: you don't deserve anything.

This Summer's McKinsey Women's Leadership Summit

Hello there,

I was accepted into the McKinsey's Women's Leadership Summit program. I was wondering how hopeful this should be interpreted as in terms of getting a job in the future, how competitive it is, and how useful it actually was. I can't find much information online. Anyone know anything about it?

Worth taking a paycut to move to Venture Capital?

I have an offer from a tech venture capital fund. But I might have to take a paycut (about 10-15%) to join them.

Here's my pros and cons list

Current IB job:

Pros:

- #1 bank in this sector in my country. Undisputed leader by far.
- Unparalleled deal flow and deal closure: closed 4 deals in my first year.
- Record breaking bonuses.


BULL MARKET UNIVERSITY

Mod Note (Andy): WSO readers qualify for a $100 discount to Jared's Daily Dirtnap daily market newsletter...just email [email protected] and mention "WSO Monkey Discount" You can follow Jared on twitter at @dailydirtnap

In my to-read pile has been some stuff on Singularity University, the Ray Kurzweil/Peter Diamandis thing, Kurzweil being the guy who wants to live forever and Diamandis being the guy who wants to mine asteroids and become a trillionaire. It's a school for billionaires and futurists and maybe writers like me. But I doubt it.

It's not an accredited university, but people really want to go there, because they have the most famous thinkers in the world teaching stuff on neurology and artificial intelligence and stuff like that. Your main homework assignment is to come up with an idea that will help a billion people. That's an easy one. Re-elect Narendra Modi.

But as you can see, that's just the way I think, like, I think if I got accepted to Singularity University (which costs $25K for a couple of weeks) I would have a pretty different perspective. It's funny, in my reading on SU, all I heard about was Moore's Law this and Moore's Law that, about how computing power will always grow at an exponential rate. Maybe not. This is an easy one. Has banking innovation grown at an exponential rate? No. Has utility innovation grown at an exponential rate? No. Computers have grown at an exponential rate because the government gnomes have left them alone. If you leave something alone, it will grow at an exponential rate.


Southern California WSO Real Estate Networking/Meetup Group

**Update** - plans are being made for a meetup, see inside the thread for details
