Have you ever or would you consider using a Life or Career Coach service? In what circumstances/why?

A life coach (broadly) and/or a career coach (in particular) counsel clients and encourages them on matters having to do with a wide variety of personal or career challenges. They listen and identify problems and set up tools and techniques and a step by step process for solving those, independent of industry if the issue is career related. For example, the one my friend is doing has four phases for her (Awareness, Analysis, Action, Achievements/Metrics) and under those there are activities to do, tools to use, and outcomes to track. This is very high level

It's one of a few career switches I'm considering. Curious to hear thoughts and experiences from others. My friend has been working from home + been a stay at home Mom for about 10 years and just signed up for 3 months of sessions, wants to re-enter workforce and get her situation at home organized, doesn't know where to start...

Have a friend who is one. People go for a variety of reasons but I think similar to a therapist it's a helpful sounding board. Sometimes it necessary to talk to someone to understand what you want.

@72 Is you coach friend doing it full time? Are they making "enough" money from it as a sole income source? I'm also looking into various certification programs for coaching, but don't know anyone who's used the service before

Sounds appropriate for your friend too

They'd have to be pretty intimately familiar with my industry for me to want to work with them... but I'd consider it. I'd look at it more as having a mentor I guess, that's really appealing. What does a life coach do if they don't know your industry? Just compare salary offers and give organizational tips?

Any suggestions on the appropriate way to leave private practice (litigation, if it matters) to go in-house without burning the bridge back to your old firm down the road? I’ve been told it’s difficult to do—particularly at my current firm.

I know there has been discussions about wedding gifts before. But here are some specifics. My cousin’s wedding, my husband and I are both attending. We gave a $150 registry gift for their wedding shower. It’s black tie wedding and will probably be the nicest wedding we’ve ever attended. Is $400 an adequate wedding gift? Too low, too high? We are also traveling from out of town.

Loved that last thread on what traits you'd look for in a partner.

I think what I want most in a wife is for us to be a power couple. I'd define this as having each other's backs (me & you facing the world), being financially independent / saving aggressively, and having a shared approach to raising our kids.

What traits do you characterize power couples by?

Hello! Any CST/CSFAs on here? I'm curious about your salary and location! My small community hospital was recently bought by a very large hospital system. They gave large raises to 95% of our employees across all specialties (some called what they got "life changing") but our group was overlooked or disregarded with no explanation! Now we are losing employees (4 have put in notices in the last 3 weeks and pretty much everyone is looking). Any suggestions on getting someone to reassess our wage?
