How bad is driving in the winter in Michigan? I’m looking to take on an 18 months project on the western side and considering staying at East Grand Rapids. My commute each way would be about an hour.

In that area you can get a lot of lake effect snow, so if you’re not already comfortable driving in the snow and ice I wouldn’t recommend it.

Yeah, it’s definitely specific to that region. The air picks up a bunch of extra moisture from the lakes, and can result in a lot of snow that is hard to predict because it isn’t dependent on the low-pressure systems that usually bring snowstorms.

If your commute with no snow is one hour then I’d definitely recommend locating to somewhere closer. I live in Detroit and the snow can get bad but Grand Rapids is even worse.

Get a rental with winter tires. It makes winter driving a lot better.

Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.

Prayers that I can keep my mouth shut at the office today ladies. Had an ambush meeting yesterday that completely blindsided me and my boss with feedback from my client. And of course, I'm scheduled to work with the client in person today. I'm still furious, but have a meeting this afternoon to verify the feedback since it was 4th hand. If it's true, I'm probably quitting because the client hasn't even indicated there's a problem and I can't do two-faced relationships.

My team has started ignoring my messages. I’m not sure what I did; I’ve been getting good feedback on my performance, I don’t message excessively often, and I don’t think I’ve done anything to cause social discomfort. The project is busy, but honestly workloads have been lighter than they used to be because we brought in additional resources, so that doesn’t explain the shift in communication styles. I used to feel like a useful team member but now I feel like an annoyance. What should I do?

Hey ladies, I need your help. I’m on a project with a new manager and they don’t really know what to do. I’m an SC and the subject of the project is new to me but I’m still trying to get things done. After a few meetings this week I think the client and our firm leadership are frustrated and I can’t help but take it personally because I feel like I’m the most experienced person on the engagement and my manager doesn’t seem to do much during the day. What should I do?

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.
