Yup! I’m told that I, “do too much,” so I always reply that “I’d rather do too much than not enough,” and then let it roll off of my shoulders. People are always going to talk.

LOVE THAT REPLYYYY

I'm sure the way I look at them and tell them my thoughts on what they just said would make them say something like, "I'm just joking with you!" and then I carry on about my business.

I don’t say anything anymore. I know I am there for the kids and that’s all that matters. Everyone prepares differently. We differentiate our lessons why can’t our planning and work ethic be differentiated too. What’s right for you and your kiddos is why you went down your path. No one else’s business.

How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
