Hello! Do you guys have any tips about working out the first thing in the morning at home? I used to go to the gym 6am pre-covid before work, but since quarantine started, I’ve been waking up like 30 mins before I need to start working/my earliest meeting 😅. It’s so hard to get out of bed when my new “gym” is right next to my bed.

Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔

I am in sixth year at a top firm in Toronto.

I have several law school classmates at this new firm so will obv ask them.
How many active channels are on your slack? I have around 50 separated by internal topics, discussions of particular account or specific project. I just had a discussion with someone who thinks it's too much and needs to be optimized more. I kind of like that I have a separate channel for separate topic. What do you think?

Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!
