Funny experience - I was in the line at a craft store and started chatting with the people around me. Person in front of me was annoyed about having to craft valentines for her kid's class. Person behind me was getting a late start on his kid's science project. They asked me what I was in for. Me: oh I don't have kids, so I'm picking up a new hobby (watercoloring). Them: oh. You must have a lot of free time and money huh. Me: yeah it's pretty great 😃👍

This happens to me with more than one client on more than one occasions. Are my emails invisible? Am I invisible? Please help.

If you get in a “yelling” match with you’re boss or your own personal client, do you usually back down? Lmao Just wondering cause I just got into it with one of my clients’ points of contact (I’m a freelancer), and I’m not sure if she expected me to back down🤣 she was clearly in the wrong, and I embarrassed her, and made sure the client knew it when I sent a video in our slack channel
This might sound like a crazy question but never having worked in public before: Billable hours - if you’re very efficient at your job, do you stretch out the time and work slower to get to your billable hours or do you safe the client the money.

Hi all, I am really trying to pivot into PM, but I am running into hurdles with my history. I do have several years of project management experience, but no formal certifications. My current employer utilizes Kanban, but we don’t use WIP boards (we basically have to memorize where all our projects are at). We only use a CRM to manage our projects. I’m trying to get a Google project management certificate, as this counts towards the PMP, but I’m too burnt out. Any recs for courses/carts?

My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
My peer doesn’t do their work that i need so i end up doing mine & theirs. Really unsure how to handle.
