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? 😇
Does anyone in the Chicago area have a therapist they like? Preferably female. Or, as my first GCD would say, “Preferably a Lady-Doctor.”
Dealing with “mean girls” at work. Like, return my smiles with dirty looks, exclude me and a couple other women, pretend I don’t exist type of mean girls. Do I keep trying or...
I have never negotiated a salary before. I’ve always just accepted what was offered because I have a fear that if I make the situation too difficult, they’ll decide I’m not worth the trouble (cont.)
Going to be starting off in the industry soon as a Jr Strategist. I'm looking for a mentor, any advice?
I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. 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.
As a single woman with chronic illnesses, I’m starting to find working in our industry increasingly hard to sustain. Long days, no one to share the “running life" load with, and recently (cont)

Does anyone have advice about how to focus on work during intense relationship conflict? My boyfriend and I are in the middle of a heavy, emotional fight but I have a few things that absolutely have to get done today. I’m struggling to focus so would love any tips.
How do you ask for a raise? I know I have the case for it— I was promoted about a year ago but received a pay increase that is on the very low end of the spectrum for my market. I’ve grown into a lot more responsibility since then, manage someone under me now, and on top of that my direct boss just put in her 2 weeks and I’ve already been told I’ll have to stretch even more than I already am. Would appreciate any advice on wording the conversation!
Seeking AD ACD partner. Must enjoy multiple rebriefs, long journeys, danger, darkness, and stale chips. Jk it’s pretty chill. Decent clients. Good opportunities and creative leadership. Great gossip. DM for more info.
I'm working on a project for which we need a whole bunch of different illustrators. A good part of my recommendations are female, then my boss comes in and shows only work from dudes 🤦🏻♀️
Just started a new job with a new partner. Very strange dynamic. We get along great when we’re just chatting/concepting one on one but anytime we’re on a call with the rest of the team it’s like he somehow makes me take a backseat. Presents all of that work, very politely talks over me/for me “...I think she’d agree with me that the idea is____”. And is having regular one on ones with our boss without me. Just not really sure what to make of it or how to handle....continued
Can anyone recommend some quality activewear brands (that ideally sell their pieces as sets)?
Can 👏🏼 Not 👏🏼 Stand 👏🏼 my partner on this extra thing I’m working on. I have constant thoughts of dropping the project, but it’s for an award show. I guess I’ll just suck it up for the next few months. But it’s doing terrible things for my well-being.
