Hello please can I find Victoria’s boot camp I keep hearing about this being great to study for shrm exam but I can’t find it anywhere thank you
I am an associate attorney for a solo and the only one. We work with individual clients, not corporations. So I started to do intake and client consults and got 6 retainers in 6 weeks. I am eligible for a bonus based on my billables, but I brought in about $10,000 for the firm just due to some sales skills I never knew I had lol. So I asked about fee splitting these sales and the boss said no, it will go to my billables and to a sizable bonus. Still, should I push for fee splitting or let it go?

After a full day of mediation or deposition I am not only wiped but I often then feel like taking the next day (or at least morning) easy. I’m not sure if I’m just beginning to feel burned out or if I have a bigger issue with “professional stamina.” Does anyone else feel this way?
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
Anyone have any insight into VC/Emerging Growth work? Particularly as it relates to day to day work, exit options, and work life balance?

Are there any CA family law firms looking to contract out work (legal research, drafting briefs, disclosures, forms, discovery, etc.)? I have over 6 years of experience and am well-versed in family code and case law. (My attorney is on family leave so we don't have the workload I'm used to right now, and my husband might be switching jobs with a pay cut, so it wouldn't hurt to earn some extra money.) Thanks!
Do seasoned attorneys still have “nightmares” about law school? Last night I dreamt that I was two weeks late to turn in a final paper and wouldn’t graduate unless I could convince my professor to accept it after the due date. This scenario never actually happened, but still some residual angst and insecurity must have fueled it. I graduated from Columbia Law School in 2008, over a decade ago- how does it still haunt me?

Has anyone ever dealt with a situation within their family where children (nieces or nephews) may be experiencing neglect on some level? How have you navigated conversations with the parent?

Women married to non-consulting partners: How do you manage expectations with your partner and your own guilt while working on client engagements? I got married recently and am feeling guilty about spending less time with my partner after starting on a new engagement.

Their job doesn’t involve weekend work and I feel bad about ditching weekend and vacation plans for work!
