First Time Firing Someone - I need some pointers

This person is very sensitive and sweet. She definitely has been excited to be a part of the team but she just doesn't have the sense of urgency required and the team is consistently having to do extra to pull her weight. I've been avoiding letting her go for some time now, giving her various "easier" tasks and trying to find a place to utilize her. Her manager has been trying to work with her to no avail and we've decided it's time to let her go. I want to be very gentle and encouraging but I really don't know how to handle this. She's definitely going to cry and I'm an empathetic cryer...oh boy. I also feel terrible about it because these are tough times and jobs are scarce. Y'all got any thoughts, words of wisdom and/or experiences that might help me feel empowered to do this and do it well? Also, she does not have a scheduled shift this week. Do I call her in to talk? Or schedule her for a shift and then drop the bomb?

💸📉 In June, bloombergopinion's Stephen Roach predicted a 35% decline in the value of the dollar by the end of 2021. Six months later, and the dollar is down about 10% to 12% relative to America’s major trading partners, dropping to its weakest levels since early 2018. There were three main reasons why he argued the dollar would fall: 1) a sharp widening in the U.S. current-account deficit, 2) the rise of the euro, and 3) a Federal Reserve that would do little in response to any weakness in the greenback. On each of these counts, Roach now has greater conviction on the weak-dollar call today than he did over the summer. Tap the link in our bio to read why he is convinced that there is more dollar pain to come. 📷 Michael Raines/Getty Images

help!: name my handywoman business

I’ve got plenty of tools and skills and i’d like to start providing minor home repair services to my community. However, I’m having trouble naming my new business. Give me your best name for a local one woman handywoman service. Unique and creative submissions very welcome! While safety is a small concern, it is important to me advertise my gender up front. Stats say more than 70% of all home repair and renovation projects are initiated by the woman of the house. I’m excited about the idea of female empowerment and visibility in this male dominated industry. any crosspost suggestions also welcome

I realized for sure Entrepreneurship will be my future.

I’m 17 and I own a Shopify store I opened that sells clothing and stuff for meditation. I also have a Job at Walmart. Today at around 9:50ish, right before I was about to clock out, I got a sale on my store. That notification saying I’ve made a sale motivated me and made me happy much more than I ever felt working at Walmart. I can’t continue to slave away at this job. I NEED entrepreneurship to search for the next business venture. I desire freedom and I can’t get it here. But I have to stay for now. That’s okay.

Should I get a CFA to learn more about investing?

I’m have a degree in accountancy, 5 years exp in finance as an analyst. I quit to run my own business for 6 years and recently exited due to COVID. Started investing a few months ago. I know most people get CFA for professional reasons. However, I have no intention of going back to full time employment in the foreseeable future. It will purely be for the purpose of getting more in depth knowledge how markets work and reviewing/adding to what I have learned in uni and work. I’m hoping that it can help me analyse the market and companies more thoroughly and make better investment decisions. Well and maybe getting a , CFA Charter Holder beside my name would be pretty spiffy. Is pursuing a CFA a way to get all the knowledge I need in an organised way? Or should I just watch some investment courses on udemy and call it a day?
