I confess that I have no idea what I'm doing and 99.99% of what I say is complete BS.

Don't worry. Most account people (and strategists) seem to have no idea either - they just hide it well.

Ladies, I read someone else’s post about love bombing below and I can’t get it out of my head. I’m in a ~1 year relationship, my SO continues to be very affectionate + surprise me with things, but I’m seeing his impulsive reactions to small issues or fights and can’t help but think there’s a bigger issue... any advice on how to proceed / decipher my situation unemotionally?

Hi all,
I graduated during Covid with a double major in business administration and business management with a minor in marketing and magically ended up in sales because I needed a job. I’m about to take a data analytics course to make an attempt to break into that field. I’m currently looking for a mentor to help guide me during this time. Also, if anyone is willing to look over my resume and give me tips on how to make it more presentable for recruiters in DA that would be very helpful. Thanks

If I’m not fighting with someone at work, I’m fighting with my wife. I know I am the problem but I just can’t point out what is wrong with me. Why do I feel so miserable and so combative lately?

Just watched the “social dilemma” on Netflix. While some of the findings are troubling, I do find it oddly strange that not a single finger was ever pointed at Netflix themselves. After all, it operates under a similar business model of data, remembering your tendencies, algorithms and tests to get you watching more and hooked on their platform. Wonder if there’s a hidden ploy to get you logged off your social media accounts so you can spend more time on Netflix. 🤔

I usually don't post serious stuff here on LinkedIn, but wanted to share a struggle I've faced, and hidden, for a long time. A stigma that might cause me to lose my job, or at least my colleagues' respect, now that I'm admitting it here in public. But I courageously share in the hopes that it might help even one person find the strength to face and admit it themselves, and maybe de-stigmatize it moving forward.

I secretly like Coldplay.
