    can't make out two words

    Hello,

    I am making an educational video for my students. But there are two words in the video I have failed to make out:

    'Congratulations! You've finally got(ten) that coveted title of manager. Awesome! Now, here is ....
    Along with some perks, come potentially ... problems.
    So, come on, managers! Let's talk about tips for newly-promoted managers!'

    I think the second word might be stressful.
    Here is a link:

    You

    Thank you for the time and help.
    P.S. I hope I am not breaking the rules of the forum I respect so much.

    The skinny means the (true) information, the real situation, or "the 4-1-1" as some people might say (although I'm not one fo them).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thanks for that. I had never met the expression '4-1-1' before I read your post - we Brits lead sheltered lives. I followed it up here: 411 (disambiguation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
