Thought I'd share this for inspiration. I was eating right and working out for the past few weeks and my weight on the scale was not budging which in turn was demotivating me. Yesterday was my first rest day and cheat day. I also slept a full 8 hrs. This morning I stepped on the scale and voila! Down 6 lbs. This has motivated me to keep pushing. Another 15 lbs to my target. lesson learned - Trust the process!
Got an email “reminder” that weekly lesson plans are due Monday morning. I’m tired. I want to reply “no” because I don’t have time to make detailed lesson plans on their template...for lessons that I won’t follow...for a curriculum they haven’t given me yet....But I should probably just ignore it until I’m less tired so I don’t let my mouth get me in trouble. Do y’all turn in lesson plans?
What is the expense policy for meals while traveling? This is what I see online but it doesnt seem to provide anything besides “reasonable”. Is the policy really that lax?
Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

I’m a CPA/FA and want to sit for the CFP exam. When I took the CPA I used CPAExcel and I loved it bc it broke down the material into “bite sized” lessons. Anything like that for CFP? Continued..
I'm 25 weeks pregnant and have been looking for work for the past month and half after getting laid off. I've had several interviews, but so far nothing has panned out. Baby is due mid-September. Is it too late at this point? Should I just stop looking and wait until after the baby is born? This has been such a stressful time.
I have to admit: I have more fun making it rain at a shitty restaurant than I do trying to squeeze a nice restaurant under my expense ceiling. “Why yes, I did spend $74 at an airport pizza cafe"
Folks what’s the salary range at google for engagement manager in GCP let’s say L6. If someone can provide the breakdown of TC that would be great
My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree

Anyone else feeling like picking money over creative and craft? Might be a career killer but how bad is it to chase the money and go in house? Some in-house is pretty sweet (Spotify, Square space, FB) while others are blah. Is it okay to ditch agency life as a mid-level when you decide the portfolio isn’t worth it?

I think it might be stressing my wife out, but there’s not much in life that I want anymore. I have everything I need. The only thing I wanted for Father’s Day is to stay in bed for an hour with a cup of coffee.

Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Received a job offer for an industry senior job that would be a $20K pay bump plus nice bonus and really good benefits (a lot better then my current benefits) and much better work/life balance. However, I was pretty much guaranteed to be early promoted to manager this year (in August). I don’t really see myself staying until partner so I’m trying to weigh out the pros and cons to help me make a decision.
