I have social anxiety disorder, which is pulling me down in every aspect. I'm working from home since last 2 years which gave me a comfort zone. Recently I got an opportunity to visit client location and I turned that down because of fear of meeting new people. Now I'm regretting. Should I take professional help to overcome this ? any suggestion is welcomed.

What do you do when ‘talent’ is sourced by the client and only they are allowed to talk to them and relay info you need from them?

We have to film them at their house, with their own supplied wardrobe and props for the shoot (for budget reasons). What have we not gotten yet a day and a half before the shoot? Location photos, approval to tech scout at location, wardrobe photo options, or props that they claim they have…. I’m just bracing myself for a shit show.

Hi,

The people at ariba are great. The nicest I have ever met, but if they hire you for a contract they will tell you in a year they will hire you. However, in PA they have strange laws and it is cheaper to just keep someone for almost a year then let them go. They bring new people in all the time to replace you and do not hire you after ayear and I feel I did a very good job for them. I was getting los of 5 star reviews. That doe not matter. IN a year they will not renew your ontract.

3. Let both A & B work an 8 hour work day.
4. In 8 hours, A can complete task X four times while B completes task X once.
5. Since consulting is billed hourly, both consultants get the same utilization and billable hours from the client.
