I have an opportunity to join an investment sales team specializing in office and industrial in a tier 1 city. I would normally jump at this, but the uncertainty around everything coronavirus makes me nervous about going commission based. How are the IS brokers out there doing?

There’s definitely a salary component, but yes the brokerages are culling bonuses and freezing hiring so I’m surprised there is a role to begin with. I’d say the industrial tilt will mitigate some of that, but you an anticipate activity to pick back up rapidly over the next few years. If it’s a decent base pay and the direction you want to head in your career, I’d say go for it

Nice, that’s reassuring. Thank you!

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

In the past two weeks my work has picked up 10x what it was previously. Now I’m working 70+ hr weeks and often my projects are submitted nearly before deadline since I’m shuffling multiple at once. My team is understaffed and there’s no plan to hire people due to COVID-19. How do you manage to tackle the day instead of let it tackle you? I feel like no one knows how much I’m suffering since I’m WFH’ing and try to relay positive emotions over FaceTime or messages.

Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
