My favorite book is “Powerful” by Patty McCord. “Work rules” is ok too. I don’t like podcasts in general, but if I have to choose one, I would go with Adam Grant’s podcast

My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.

* Pretty stupid question but * Thinking of hiring a cleaning person for my place. I’m pretty young, I’ve never hired someone for something like this before. Do you think it would be an issue in the future if I wanted to go into a judgeship or into politics, if I had never checked her papers and she ended up being undocumented? Not sure how to ask someone off the bat for papers and I would rather not do it if I don’t have to.
