Hi, my husband was diagnosed Covid on Monday. I told a few partners I worked for (and made clear that I have to take him to hospital for treatment and follow up checks) and pretty much got no sympathy. Every email started with hope he feels better but when your get a second, could you do this? Could you do that? So today I am confirmed Covid (and I’m pregnant), haven’t told work about Covid or pregnancy. What should I do? What’s the expectation of time off if you get Covid at a law firm?
Sadly pulling an all-nighter just to meet some annoying deadlines. Let’s play a game of “ask me anything.” Will try and answer the best way that I can. Hope everyone is having a damn well good night 💤

I am trying to move from my farming role back to an outbound prospecting position. I have a couple screening calls for some pretty awesome companies and I would love some pointers on how to beat the objection that I have only been in my farming role since June. How would you sell the fact you want to go back to SDR, I am sick and tired of non revenue generating activity and miss having a list to attack.
