Can you share one example of when you’re angry with someone, how do you quickly and respectfully tell them why? I tend to put off issues to make peace with others and hope things will improve by magic

Try to not get angry, but keep it to the facts and impact. Also, separate the relationship from the feedback. The relationship should stay good even when feedback is ‘constructive’. That’s why it should not be place for anger - anger impacts the relationship while facts and impact will feel more ‘external’ to the person.


I tell them 🤣

There is a partner in our office that routinely discusses associate performance with other associates. For example, she will tell Associate A that Associate B isn’t performing and/or hitting hours, etc. Recently, I learned that she has been discussing “issues” she had with my work product two years ago (I no longer do any work for her). Is this something I should bring up? It bothers me that she is talking about me to others.


How do I switch gears from family law (3 YOE fam law litigation in northeast PA) to literally anything else? It feels like family law is in its own field but I don't see myself being able to make as much moving forward in fam law.. I would love to go corporate or even just to another state but I am constantly seeing ads looking for fam law paralegals with experience in that state.

For context I have a bachelors as well as a paralegal certificate- just finished the latter in May.

Any thoughts on food delivery tech as an exit? 160k, 10% bonus, 15% equity (average annual after considering 4 year vesting), 30k signon. Overall 10% cut excluding signon. Not people manager role


Interested in an exit to FAANG and would love to connect with and learn from those who have made a successful exit. See a ton of new opportunities popping up in NYC!

Thanks in advance and hope to chat w a few of you soon.


Woo… Dana Commandatore, Deutsch LA’s Head of Creative Talent and Operations went to the far-right publication Daily Wire to work with her buddy Brett Craig, who as you might remember got fired for saying some racist sh*t. How many of these people were, and are still, in the position of power at Deutsch LA?!?! 🤦‍♂️

How do you deal with in laws (and some of their extended family) being more culturally and religiously traditional than what you’re comfortable with? I respect that this is who they are, but being engaged, this has become much more apparent than I anticipated (especially as we plan the wedding). My partner does not see it in the same way I do since he grew up with it, so trying to figure out the best way to approach this without making anyone feel offended


Friendly late 20s woman fish here who hasn’t been feeling good enough to be in consulting or run a business. I don’t know what’s going on but even with all of my accomplishments I feel worthless. I’m in therapy so I’m sure there’s a rainbow somewhere but I’m wondering if anyone else has felt like this and what you’ve done to get past it? I’ve thought of reading more books on my craft and doing affirmations but I’m like internally smh at everything.


I am on the only female in my practise leadership team. The amount of mansplaining and talking over me is unbelievable. Any tips?


So I’m late to the Indian Matchmaking series. Is it the guy who has to be wealthy and the women who need to come from wealth? There doesn’t seem to be a lot of emphasis on what the women do for a living, but the men all seem either well-off or getting called losers. Is that what people look for in real life too? So there’s no place for women on the come up to be with someone above their own social class?


Classic story that most of you have heard. Part venting part asking for advice. My bil applied for a job that matches less than 20% of his skill. With coaching from my husband and strong referrals he got the job(185k as manager in consulting ). Here I am in Consulting for last 6 years barely making 100k. I made a snarky comment that help only gets him this much and he will struggle at the job. My husband , rightly pointed out that I am being jealous, and most folks are fake it till you make it

My boyfriend of 4+ years and I recently broke up. It was really surprising to me. The first couple weeks I felt distracted and anxious all the time, but I expected that once those feelings passed,


I’m finally watching Indian matchmaking - and honestly I think this style of introducing people based on families, matchmaker should be way more common. So many people make terrible partner choices. More Sima Aunties!


What percentage of parents do you think had kids even though they didn't really want them? And do you think this rate is higher for men or women?


Does “Fake it till you make it” breed the Imposter Syndrome? 🤔


How do you know if you really aren’t a good fit with Accenture or you just have a toxic boss ?


I have a bit of an ethics question. I’ve accepted a job and start in a couple of weeks, but then my dream job at my dream company came available. Would you entertain interviewing with the dream job or would you hold off until you’ve been at the other company for 6mos-yr? I’m not one to burn bridges, but the other company/title/leveling is my ultimate longtime goal, whereas the accepted position is at a startup with growth opportunity (title is ok, pay/growth are stellar). Thoughts?


Just finished Indian Matchmaking. Has anyone else watched it? What are your thoughts?


I’m 25 and have a masters degree and am a consultant at a good firm in the public sector. I make great money and think I’m going to get promoted this year, but I don’t feel satisfied. I’m thinking of going to law school to do more satisfying work. Is that crazy?


Ladies I leave you with this. You are talented.
You are qualified.
You are deserving.

It’s time to change your thinking and adjust your words.

Shift your mindset.
Change your life
