Does anyone else try flipping on stockx? I got into it unintentionally when WFH started with my first purchase of a pair of Nike reacts (I didn't like them enough to wear them). Haven't gone too crazy, but bought and sold 3 pairs since March and profited about $200 after tax and commissions. Am I just getting lucky or is it this easy to make a profit?

Can make profits with the right eye and feel for value on stockx. Bigger profits if you can find ways to get hyped shoes at retail price. Rule of thumb strategy for me - hyped releases = fast flips for profit if I can get at retail price (sometimes I'll get at retail and hold for a year...gut feeling pretty much) value finds on stockx (or similar site) = buy and hold for 6months to 2years

Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.

I have adhd and struggle with anxiety and depression. This year has been relentless. WFH and dealing with stress has destroyed my cognitive functioning. Im not as productive, work quality has suffered, I don’t interact as effectively as I used to. My performance has taken a hit - which my manager has noticed - and I can’t get back on track. I’m really trying. The fact that I’m worried about my job makes things even worse. Any advice for how to overcome this? (Beyond therapy/meds - already doing)

What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.

How can I not be awkward at conferences where all my remote coworkers that I've never met will be there? I have an issue with awkward silence and not knowing what to say or how to act.

One perk of WFH is I can cry without having to hide in a bathroom. Maybe I’m PMSing but just feeling really unwanted rn. Don’t have friends or work colleagues that seem to care about/like me. Like is there something genetically about a person that can make them unlikeable? I just don’t understand what’s wrong with me as a person. I have an SO and family that love me very much but I need the external validation and I’ve never had that. Just gonna be in my feelings the rest of today.
