Wanna know how to win in the market?
Stop seeing HR and Finance as the company police.
The sooner you do it the faster you'll win:

When I started my corporate career, I knew nothing about P&L.
I was lucky enough to have great Finance partners by my side.
They demystified all those huge excel sheets that had scared me.
Same with HR.

The moment you realise that those 2 can be your allies, your life will change.

Yes but...

BE the change you want to see.
Be clear.
Manage expectations.
Make friends.

Win in the market.
