Feeling pulled in many directions by firm leadership. I need to choose who to align with but anxious about burning bridges and fear of the unknown. Inaction is the worst possible move right now.

Whatever it is just make sure whatever you say is the truth. I’ve witnessed first-hand how lies have a way of taking on lives of their own...trying to save you headaches later


Approach the leader you want to work with. Get their support. Then tell the other leaders.


I would chose based on growth opportunity and people I work best with.


I need to firmly state my choice with evidence to back it up. But I really have no clue and worry that whatever choice I make will ultimately be the wrong one. Any advice on figuring this out?

How’s everyone’s marriages doing with all of this together time? Anyone considering divorce yet? I’m working up the nerve to discuss marriage counseling with my husband. I realized with all this time together how much we’ve grown apart. I thought we could be using this time to come together but that still isn’t happening. Anyone else going through this? Any thoughts or suggestions?

Note: no, don’t have a trust fund though i was raised in a middle to upper middle class household
