Keep providing that support. Maintaining mental health is a continuous battle. They’ll win some days and lose some days but having people to bank on when you feel like you’re taking Ls means the most. Prayers up family 🤞🏽

Cont.. a “career” (has been an admin for 5 years). Trying to think of potential paths that would be doable for someone with limited professional working experience (but is smart). My thoughts: 1. Leverage admin experience to go into a coordinator/project admin/project assistant type role 2. Obtain technical skill (e.g., through coding boot camp or the like) and go from there. What are some routes that you think are doable? Thanks in advance.

Both are good ideas. Start with one that has lower stress and move up.

Appreciate the rec, but agree w C2, I don’t think a high stress job would be ideal. Also think consulting has a relatively high barrier to entry. Thanks!

Technical education that can get for free/on their own: salesforce - and then can do business analyst/implementation type of work - or PM for software who has salesforce platform.

Thanks all! Any other ideas?
