Hahahaha.... on a meeting until 7PM because of a self important west coast client 🙄🙁

I mean it’s kind of justice for people on the West Coast who constantly have to cater to East Coast hours. I’d rather stay late then wake up early any day. 

This... every time I try to take off at 5:30 (which is like once every other month, mind you) my west coast clients just will. not. stop. I’ve even considered moving to California just to fix the time difference problem but I know that’s just putting a bandaid on it

I posted in this bowl earlier in the week asking for advice regarding obtaining mentorship/development! After getting feedback I went to my direct manager and asked for opportunities to gain more Project Management skills. She has authorized me to start leadership classes within my org in Jan 2022 and will speak with our director about possible job openings/tasks to assign me! Thank you to those who weighed in. It helped me take the plunge!
