How realistic is it to have two full time (40 hours a week) product design roles at the same time?

I held two PM roles for over 6 months. It depends on how demanding and meeting heavy each one is. It can be done, but it is mentally and emotionally draining. Also felt incredibly shitty to lie to co-workers that I cared about. I don’t regret it though. I learned a lot about how much I’m willing to put into any one company and paid off nearly $70k in loans/debt in that time 😬

Totally doable. Have plenty of friends doing it. My question to you is what is more important? Building your personal brand, or making double the money short term? Doing the 2 for 1 will require you to disappear from linkedin

I think you could do it for 3 to 6 months but will have to quit one. It’s not sustainable, and you’d be killing your brand all for the extra check. You could probably take on some flexible gigs and knock those out over the weekend if money is the issue. By gigs, I don’t mean Uber… there are some flexible gigs that don’t request the 40 hour work week

My company is notorious for not giving raises unless you ask. My direct report lacks boundaries and has said things like “I haven’t gotten one so…”. There is no report above her anymore as he recently left. Do I meet with the CEO? Or send and email with my request for an increase? I do not trust my direct report to have my back or even take it to the next level for approval.

Guys - Do you believe this is a good time to get into 3rd Party contracting? The benefits are - permanent residency sponsorships available, good rates, choose your projects, no hierachy BS, no politics. Cons - Loose an existing project and there could be a time lag of 2 to 3 months before you find a project, recession fear, no growth, limited medical benefits. immigration risk etc. What do you guys think?
