How are you all managing? Wfh or still in the office? I'm wfh with my husband in a 1-bedroom apartment. Slowly losing my mind. But I am being more diligent about working out.

Took advantage of my self-isolation to fully marie-kondo my apartment. Now I need to take a giant pile of stuff to Goodwill. I guess it will sit in my closet until this coronavirus situation clears up

I've never been so bullish on remote work and entertainment apps. I'm watching about 300% more Netlix. Anyone else?

Very frustrated that a lot of papers aren't lifting their online paywalls on coronavirus coverage. I know I've passed my limit of free articles SF Chronicle but this is a quasi national emergency!

Did your firms do anything you found meaningful for IWD? I fear it's becoming for women what Valentine's Day is to true love...commercial, self-congratulatory. I may be overly-cynical

Some schools near me (Seattle) are closing due to coronavirus. I don't know what to do if my kids will be home- I can wfh but will need a sitter. Who can I ask to sit in this situation? Any advice?

Anyone here think Harvey Weinstein will actually serve jail time or will he spend most of his remaining life in hospitals? I doubt his white collar jail cell will be that bad even at Rikers

PSA: vote411.org has good info on local races including judges etc., you can search by geography. They include info candidates sent in about themselves but don’t edit and have fairly thorough coverage

How are you all addressing clients' stresses about the markets given the coronavirus situation? Aside from investment advice- on a personal/emotional level.

One of my biggest fears is having the first or second day of my period on the same day as an important meeting. Mine is irregular so I can’t reliably plan around it and pain is debilitating—continued-

As a woman, how do you stay in touch with prospects and build rapport? I’ve tried doing regular lunches/coffees and it just results in the prospect eventually asking me out and it’s REALLY frus

For all the moms, how do you manage this job with a newborn? Some days are easier than others for sure, but most days I just feel guilty

What do you all do to unwind from a busy work week? Feel like I haven't really made time for myself lately and looking to do something nice for myself!

Has anyone here attended any conferences related to our field? Looking to attend one and think it can be a networking opportunity but afraid it'll just be a boys club the entire time I'm there
