“We don’t negotiate salaries” is a negotiation tactic.
Always. No, your company is not an exception.
I have seen this happen *extremely* rarely, mostly to women, and anyway is a giant red flag. It suggests you probably didn’t want to work there.
Instead, negotiate hard, use your privilege, and then go and share numbers with your underrepresented and underpaid colleagues. […]
Take your higher salary and the leverage that comes with it, and use it to make things more fair.
“But I don’t need more money!”
As if you could go to the company and tell them “you should pay me more, you see, I need more money”.
Don’t need the extra money? Great! Donate it, save it, escape debt, negotiate with more leverage, pick better jobs, retire early, whatever. It’s yours.
Higher comp if anything brings more organizational trust and respect, leading to less micro-management and wasted time, because you are more valued.

It doesn't happen because you made it happen.
It happens because you allow it to happen.

True for life, true for investing.
1. Self-Respect is paramount
Without self-respect, nothing else in life is possible. Discipline, integrity, work ethic, values: they're all made possible through self-respect. Guide your actions with the question “What would a self-respecting man do?” Then do that thing.
2. Everything must be earned
You are owed nothing. The world will rightly treat you as such. You must believe you are capable, and you must believe you WILL achieve your goals. But you must never rely on others to do the work for you. If you don't earn it, it isn't really yours.
3. People are ultimately self-interested
People will behave in whatever way is most expedient for them. It isn’t right or wrong, it’s just true. People want their problems solved, and they want to feel good. Give them those things and you’ll never be wanting.
4. Compounding powers the world
Success is the result of your daily actions. The effort you put in today, whatever the endeavor, will build on itself over time. Investment, strength, knowledge, the rules are the same: 1% of 100 is much less than 1% of 1,000,000.

[ QUICK THREAD ]
How do you feel when you see someone that looks angry?
It’s a downer
No one will want to interact with you if you look pissed all of the time, it’s just negative energy
Plus, smiling is a sign of confidence and boosts others moods
Don’t walk Into any social setting looking like the hunchback
It’s weak and makes you look low energy
Plus, you’re displaying low status with weak posture
Stand up straight with your chin up & chest out like a god
Walk like you’re proud of yourself
3- Strong eye contact
Ever shake someone’s hand & their eyes are either looking down or darting?
It’s weak & you probably won’t trust them
Or in conversation?
Eye contact while talking means you’re listening and paying *Attention*
Strong eye contact displays confidence
4-Fluid hand gestures
Use your hands to talk & express your points
Don’t stand there like a robot
Using the hands can make what you’re talking about exciting
It can also be used to emphasize
Exciting = positive emotion
Remember, making people FEEL is what’s important
And here at ACLU-MA, we know that justice is a labor of love. Here are some of our favorite moments of love and justice in the last year, to brighten your #ValentinesDay.
Almost exactly a year ago, our clients Hanz and Maudy were reunited after being separated by the cruel "Return to Mexico" policy.
Yesterday, a family of asylum seekers were reunited. Hanz & his son were subjected to #MPP, a cruel policy that forced them into dangerous cities in northern Mexico. We sued on their behalf, allowing them to rejoin their family in Massachusetts. pic.twitter.com/Kce6MTpS9C— ACLU Massachusetts (@ACLU_Mass) February 7, 2020
I won't name the person but it's related to someone I know digitally
I've been following him for a year or more
He owns a digital marketing agency and a sells some courses
He had tremendous growth rate on his social media
Everything was going good but today he's shutting down his agency
Started providing digital marketing services but
Instantly started running massive number of ad campaigns on his social media accounts
Used to pay around Rs 5-10 lakhs per month = rent in a posh area + employees
Shutting down today
He has a strong personal brand but at the cost of massive investments!
Be it on Ads or PR or some branding

For candidates: evaluate prospective employers accordingly.
For startups employing e.g. engineers: given that your candidates should evaluate you accordingly, be *extra special* careful to operate like professionals with regards to e.g. interviewing, offers, and negotiation.
"Can you be more explicit about 'abusive' here?"
Not without violating a confidence, but as someone who has been on hiring side of table and is a capitalist, there are *clearly* things you could do which would be "sharp operating, but we're all sharp operators" in some contexts.
Hiring employees is often not one of those contexts. The nature of the relationship, the asymmetry in power, and the social contract strongly counsel you to be a lot better there than you are minimally required by law / contract.
A thing which aesthetically frustrates me is that a lot of the things I've heard companies do here serve *no legitimate business purpose.* In some cases it's getting tens of dollars of advantage. TENS! On an engineering candidate!
Reliable source tells me Withdrawal Deal text contains
- No unilateral exit from backstop
- Large annexe on level playing field
.... after reporting this on @SkyNews I get a call from a different senior source that this is “spot on” and further that the Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has not pulled his punches in confirming in legal advice there is “no unilateral exit” from backstop ...
... furthermore I’m told (and this chimes with excellent Times splash this morning re Weyand) that the future partnership then takes its starting point as the activated backstop - ie UK-wide customs union-style arrangement and level playing field.
Understand that a ministerial briefing on the draft Withdrawal Agreement meant to drum up support from some trade organisations due tonight has now been postponed
I was in the process of booking a flight via @OneTravel. Trying to make me book ASAP, they claimed: "38 people are looking at this flight".
Whoa, 38 is a lot, I have to hurry up. But first I have to check how they came up with 38 >>
[2/4] Right click and a quick "inspect" on the number, I found out the element's class name is "view_notification_random".
Awesome variable naming guys.
So you're _randomly_ trying to freak me out. Alright >>
[3/4] So what's your sophisticated pseudo-random algorithm?
Apparently, OneTravel are choosing a number between 28 and 45.
Because as you all know, based on serious psychological research, these numbers tend to make people book their flights fast #sarcasm #not42 >>
[4/4] Here's a bonus graph.

• After launch, ROI declines consistently across every advertising channel
• Early metrics are misleading because traffic is front-loaded due to the way ad algos work
Digital ad metrics have decayed every year since the industry was created.
• CPMs on major ad networks are now increasing at ~40%/yr.
• In 1997, CTR on HotWired was 78%. In 2019, Facebook’s average CTR is about 0.9%.
Facebook/Google algorithms are so good at targeting people that paid acquisition traffic tends to be highly front-loaded.
Founders and investors are often shocked when numbers rapidly decay — because the ad population has been saturated.
So, what’s the answer for these startups? I think a few things:
1. Optimize ad spend as the userbase saturates
2. Build a distribution moat to re-target customers later
3. Focus the core business on things that spread organically
4. Explore emerging advertising channels quickly

- Join & start community initiatives to meet people
- Learn from these people about how special the Nordic tech scene is
- Share this with the world through The Nordic Web
- Realise the real value is in the data, particularly in building network
- Use network to raise a fund
3) In fact, it looks all very strategic, but the reality is anything but.
My lack of vision and goals during this 5 year period was _criminal_
Any movement from one step to the next was never pre-planned and was instinctive, or worse, accidental.
4) While I am embarrassed to think of my headless chicken self, there's also part of me that thinks that none of this would have turned out where it did if I had of been deliberate and strategic about this.
5) In fact, I think my genuine love for the Nordics and the ecosystem is the MAIN reason to explain how I raised my fund & managed to move from step to step.
My story is a good example of how passion can be more powerful than strategy in the early stage of an idea/company.
