You guys. I really struggle with cutting my own time. I know everyone says not to do it. But I get self-conscious and I also feel bad because sometimes I’m really good at concentrating and other times I check my phone, stare at the wall, lose my train of thought, get an interrupting email, etc. How do y’all handle recording your time when you know you were distracted for part of it?

Hey everyone,

I recently started a job as an outbound, enterprise BDR.

I have no previous experience with sales, but I did really well at first. In my first two months I was at the top of my sales team, and one of the top performers in the national sales org for dials/arr.

I hit a block, and now I can't seem to get passes at all. My effort hasn't changed. But I can't get meetings scheduled.

Has anyone experienced hitting a block like this? How do you overcome it?

Is there any easy way to bill for emails? At the end of each month I spend way too much time trying to collect the 0.1s from the month. I go day by day with my emails, sent then received. It’s so boring and time consuming but I have never known an easier way (aside from entering emails daily, but I find that doesn’t work either because if you get multiple emails on a case in a day, you’d have to keep editing the entry.)

Can anyone explain why a rainmaker would stay at a firm vs. strike out solo? I get the economies of scale of being in a large shop. However, there must be some point where it is worth it. Is it that the marginal profit increase isn't worth the administration? Or perhaps, is it the hedge against downside in the lean times. It seems that staying at a firm is beneficial to average Partners, but rainmakers seem to be disadvantaged to a degree.

There is a partner at my firm who literally makes it seem like it is beneath him to even have to talk to you while giving you an assignment. Like I apologize that my existence is so taxing for you but thanks for the work. It’s not even like we have personal issues, he just completely lacks the ability not to make you feel like your presence is beneath him.

I need advice: Starting big law in a few weeks and my hair looks similar to Gambino below, but a lil less beard. Serious thoughts on keeping it vs. cutting my hair down.??—For reference, when I summered I had a fade/waves. I’ve only been growing my hair since last fall & now don’t wanna cut it. I know it’s ultimately up to me but how would you make the decision?? Will I get less respect or work? Will they even recognize me? lol Thanks

Why won’t more employers offer the opportunity for international students to join them?

I just convinced my startup to sponsor me and I’ve been leading the process. All I had to do was register us on E-verify (FREE), and hired a law firm to help us with the H1B which will cost $7K. I still have two years of stem OPT on top of that. I thought the process was way more complicated. Not sure why some firms say they don’t accept international students when the process is so straight forward.

Remote workers— what’s your daily schedule like, how much are you at your desk all the time?

This law job is my first 9-5 ever, and it’s been disorienting trying to figure out boundaries and a schedule when there’s no one around to compare to? Sometimes I feel bad about taking a lunch or not being near my computer, even when the workload is light, which is wild. Frankly, I just don’t know how to take advantage of the flexibility of remote work because I’m so preoccupied with being available.
