Best thing I’ve gotten, my in-law did a search for a cool local shop in my town and had a gift basket sent over. It’s win for shop local and felt really special. Still considered on-line. Also, this is a great way to get a better custom flower arrangement vs. standard FTD fare. Call a local florist.

Chukar Cherries! I received a box of their chocolate coated cherries from a client a couple of years ago and they were so great, I’ve been buying them for myself since. Top quality chocolate and excellent cherries.

Not always a store, sometimes from a certain distillery or vineyard. Depends on their taste.

send them something from a small maker or business. candles, baked goods, dog treats, whatever. always feels more special and supports someone’s livelihood.

At Deloitte now. laid off last year while on medical leave. Landed a new job with the help of a senior mentor and vouched for me not knowing my medical limitations. I just had to take sick leave again on the first project out of the gate. Dr is recommending 40 hours a week which will not fit the requirements of my director role. I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?

Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants.
