I think it comes with the territory. Just another part of life you have to work through. Stay the course, keep your word, focus on the bigger picture.

What do you mean with "trapped"? Like you can't do stuff for yourself, always have to do things together? I had such a period with my wife, she works a lot (we both do, but she even more) and when she wasn't working, it was sort of implied we'd then spend that time together. What helped was we talked about it and I actively helped her figure out what her hobbies could be. She picked up running (something we both enjoyed in the past and now do together sometimes as well) and bought a piano (also something when used to do in the past) and started playing again. It's super important that within a marriage (or long-term relationship) you have time alone and have the freedom to spend it the way you like

I have been unhappy about my current job for a bit now, been at the company for almost 10 years, and have started looking for a new job. I have a solid job offer on the table, but a newer PE group just reached out and are looking for a high level either VP or Director of retail sales (my specialty). I am more interested in this private equity group as I would get to build a whole team and really make a retail strategy but they are newer so I am unsure the stability. Thoughts on working for a PE?

Data strategy question: My Fintech organization has 2 banking products, both of which have similar features, but one caters to smaller banks and credit unions while the other focuses on the top 100 banks in the US. The product and engineering teams for both these products operate independently and rarely use any common technology vendors (except AWS, our common infra partner). Does it make sense to have a common data strategy and a single data lake across this products? What are the benefits?

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it?

I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
