Definitely helped with planning my wedding 😉 I think I had 5 or 6 tabs in a workbook


I’m planning my wedding using Trello and assigning shit to my fiancé


I am super organized at work. So, naturally my personal life is a mess.

Not enough brain power for both.


Christmas cards and gift lists cross referenced with budget, status, and addresses. Vacation google maps with layers for restaurants, attractions, etc, by day. And that’s just for starters... 🤓


Google Spreadsheets are my life for everything.


Absolutely but I love it

Yes, my friends make fun of my spreadsheets...but it's helped out on big camping trips!

I feel like I’m the only one who ever thinks about RISK amongst my friends. They hate me for it.

I'm currently a Client Relations Manager in a role that is more like a product manager role with 2 years experience managing a significantly large client list. I'm not loving being a CRM but it's provided me great experience. Previously I have 10 years of media planning and video production experience. I would like to study for a project manager certification to be able to apply for in-house marketing project manager roles. Any recommendations on part time courses? I'm based in the Bay area.

Talk to me about schedules, please. I recently moved back into an IC role and am once again responsible for developing project plans. I absolutely loathe building schedules but I can’t seem to pin point why. Maybe because building a good one with dependencies takes forever or because no one looks at them or because they seem outdated. Why can’t prioritization do the work for us? How do you all approach schedules? Thoughts? Ideas?

Anyone looking for a head of PM?


I'm struggling with burnout vs boredom. I left my last PM role due to crippling burnout. My current job was a godsend. Less responsibility and a better support team. Initially, I hung in the background to recoop mentally, but as my burnout faded, I realized my workload was too lite. I asked for more responsibility and received it, but I'm breezing through without challenge. Simply put, I'm bored. Should I look for a new role with more complex projects or stay and take the no burnout win?


Anyone from CT know if any senior level PM openings?
