2/2 being promoted to manager, I just feel like there’s so much more stress and headache that comes with that then I really don’t want. I guess my question is, how did you figure out what you wanted to do in your career when it came to professional and personal development? And what do you do if you feel like you’re in a space where your content but people are asking you to figure out what else you want to do in the next 2 to 3 years?

I mean… I think if you don’t go up for manager they’ll give you those responsibilities anyway but without the pay and title lol

This part.

I think you should go for it, you’ll get back to this spot you’re currently in where you can coast and clock out. You’ll have maybe 25% more responsibility, but you’ll learn to optimize those new processes and get back to your working style.

I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly.

My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?
