Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
Has anyone tried out the Branch Furniture ergonomic desk chair? If so, would you recommend it? If not, which chair would you recommend?
Recommended home office color printers? Does not need to be all in one. Looking to print the occasional deck etc.
How difficult it is to change home office location? Don’t want to wait for the financial year to end. What permissions are needed and how much time it takes to get those approvals?

Best office chair for short people? I am 5’1, work on avg 10 hours a day. I have moderate scoliosis and my back just can’t take this cheap chair I have now :/
Does rotating among 3-4 clients for no more than a month each requires LCA? Some in the same city as my home office and some are not.
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Had a minor back injury (should heal on its own) but I don’t think sitting in an office chair all day is helping. Any ideas to make it more bearable?
Has anyone ever slept in their home office/ their firm's office in another city? (for the entire night not just 10 minutes)
Let’s talk office set ups. I am looking at a Uplift standing desk as my big splurge because I have back issues, and the room I work in has horrible lighting so I’m considering some sort of selfie light ring type thing that I can clip to my monitor. Anyone have feedback on either the desk or a light they like, or any other ergo friendly home office hacks you’ve found helpful?
Has anyone sponsored a child through Compassion International (or other charity)? What was your experience? I’ve always wanted to sponsor a child but want to make sure that donation is being used for right place/making direct impact to child’s life

Tips on planning lessons that could be delivered over any medium: online, in person, flipped, etc?
Would you ever ask an interviewer “what do you consider my weaknesses as a potential candidate?” Or something of that nature? I’ve been advised to ask it before and am curious. Of course this will be an opportunity to “defend” yourself or highlight your strengths, or propose what you’re doing to improve in those areas. Interested in some other perspective as I have a final interview later this week
Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company? The division I’m currently in seems like there are no good opportunities, and I have the funds available to finish my undergraduate full time (Canada). I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.

As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends. But last weekend, I didn’t bring a gift to my friend’s kid’s 8th birthday party. Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)
Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
Every Covid ad is the same. To the creatives that are lucky enough to have a job, please stop making these stupid ads. To the brands that think making this kind of comm is a good idea, think again. https://youtu.be/vM3J9jDoaTA

Advice needed! I was laid off in Jan and since then I’ve been building my own practice (which I started last year and was doing on the side). Since Covid happened, work has been a lot slower so I started applying for jobs. I got two job offers in these past couple weeks, but the problem is that neither is in the area I want to practice, though the experience from one of them would be probably useful in the future. Ultimately I want to have my own practice, but my dilemma is that as a 3rd (cont.)
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
