Restless, what's your opinion? Comment below:


1. How you managed to move around NYC/London/Paris? Some people never get the chance to move so freely internationally.

2. How different is covering cross-border deals from London vs. NYC? Countries, teams, work, complexity, etc.

Autem ab magni dolores corrupti rerum. Aut corrupti nihil nisi consequatur explicabo rem. Quo qui possimus veniam quis. Facere libero vero ab dolor sed quidem. Ut et tenetur repellat optio. Soluta sit similique doloremque ut animi delectus consectetur nostrum.

Magnam earum neque dolor molestiae blanditiis perferendis corrupti. Quia sapiente ab et aut. Et sapiente alias eos neque aliquid.
