Many companies make you run your side company by them. If its competition it is a no go. You may be allowed as a board member. If you trust someone to go in as a partnership you work for free on it and quit to make the switch. Also no work on the company time or computer or they own it

I'm done getting paid 1/3 of the class teacher pay and expected to teach the lessons. The other Paras in the class seem to think this is normal. I certainly don't get the same respect as the teacher. Am I alone here?

Becuz I’m old school I like excel. Just wanted to share (I know I do okay - 27 yo). I record leases as debt on my balance sheet since it’s an obligation I’ll need to pay (and therefore the recurring dips year after year). I guess lesson learned is that it definitely snowballs (16k to 100k took 2 years while 100 to 190k took 1 year).

Very off-law question: Since having my child I haven’t really worked out hard. Before, after a hard work-out, I noticed my sweat smelled really good.

I’m a recent grad & began my first career as a marketing coordinator. It’s been quite frustrating to say the least.

On the other hand, my manager assigns me lots of copy projects to do & either doesn’t give me informational feedback or completely disregards my work. Before I was hired, she knew exactly how my writing style was like but doesn’t use it. Help! :(
