Does agency life ever get less stressful? I feel like I'm losing years off my life with my daily workload. I feel crazy and haven't been getting enough sleep or eating because there's just so much to do in a day. It's been 9 months and idk if I just can't handle it or if I'm just constantly bad at time management or what. I hear in-house is more stable but I feel like I need more all-around agency experience before transitioning.

I have an opportunity to be a Food and Beverage manager for a hotel I have been for 6 years. Currently I am overseeing all operations but want to focus more on the F&B world. Would anyone know how much salary I should be asking for this role?
Recently, I’ve been working with a new team and couldn’t be happier with the work environment we’ve created even being short staffed. I can’t help but reflect on my past team structures I’ve had at past agencies.. I never felt I could relate to anyone (usually white f/m) and seems like we only ever bonded over happy hours & publisher outings with tons of booze. Point being, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to lead a diverse team of strong thinkers and hard workers with similar experiences.
Currently 22w and headed up to nyc in three weeks to see friends. We were going to make a weekend out of it and get a hotel/go out to restaurants but now monkeypox has me worried. Would you cancel the trip or just try to be careful?

So I went out with my buddy whose in wealth management and wants to be a financial advisor. He wears a vest and tells everyone he’s a finance bro in banking.

Looking for recommendations on financial modeling courses (paid) that I can take for 3 statements/operating model, valuations, M&A, & LBO.
