Bullish on The Muse…Dear Everyone: Let’s Ban “Working Mom” From Our Vocabulary

Bullish columns will now appear monthly on The Daily Muse. Additional articles from Jennifer are also appearing on DailyWorth, Medium, and here on GetBullish. There are some words I want to kill from the English language. First, “career woman.” This needs to go the way of “lady lawyer” and “coed.” Women are college students and [...]

Bullish Q&A: “You Always Say to Develop Quantitative Skills, But I’m an English Major”

I’m thinking of going to grad school for English. I know from reading archives of your advice that you highly recommend developing quantitative skills. However, Accountancy or a Computer Science conversion programme don’t appeal to me (I could do the work, but I wouldn’t enjoy that career path very much). Any advice? Yes. Why yes, [...]

Bullish Q&A: How to Maintain Your Gravitas in the Face of Street Harassment

Dear Jen, I’m moving back to the city after 6 years in the suburbs. Excited as I am I’m also anxious about reentering the world of catcalls & people following me home from the subway. I feel that by removing myself from that for so long, I’ve rebuilt a kind of dignity, and that I’m [...]

Bullish Q&A: How to Turn Down Guys Without Excuses, Apologies, or Dissimulation

Dear Jen, I’m a very outgoing girl who gets asked out by strangers a lot. I’m not interested in dating at all right now. I have way too many projects, I don’t have the time or patience for anyone else. I’m pretty assertive so total creeps are easy to flat out say no to, but [...]

Bullish Q&A: I’m Just Breaking Into My Field. It is OK to Ask for Free Stuff?

Dear Jen, This may help others even if your answer doesn’t come in time to help me, so I thought I’d ask. Is it possible or advisable to ask the sponsors of an event for free tickets if you’re passionate about the topic? It’s a conference in my case, and I know “passion” is airy [...]
