Married fish… We both use our at home office frequently and desperately need a new chair…Sometimes my husband will say we spent too much money but then when we desperately need another office chair and I text him a cheap one he says well maybe we should get a nicer one since that we can keep for a couple years and that we actually like. See my confusion here? Does anyone else’s spouse do this?

I’m 31 and have good experience as an agency producer in global networks and small creative shops, but my last two roles have been at a director level and I’m finding it challenging to attract freelance work. they see me as “too senior” for producer work, and “too junior” to head departments. I’m really good at what I do, hands on but also a happy delegate, and really think I’ve got a unique network, but just can’t crack how to approach recruiters or agency colleagues to get work. Any advice? 😇

Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
