Has anyone successfully used a fidget object or device to stay on task during the day? I put my phone in a drawer when I don't need it for work, and my desk is pretty clutter free but I'm still getting distracted by minor sh*t. Unmedicated currently.

Hello. Hoping that you could help me as I’m new to the early stage start up compensation world.
I’m currently interviewing for a director level position at a seed stage company.
They offering base at 180k ish to 0.5-0.6% equity. Is that good? I don’t have a gauge of what percentages are typically like as I’m a newbie.
Would love someone’s thoughts #equity #startup #tc
I’m sending an email to female partner in a leadership position (never met) to set up a meeting to introduce myself. My plan is to send her a short email, giving some background about myself and let her know I want to connect to introduce myself. During the meeting, I plan to discuss my key projects, ask about her vision and how I can help her/which initiatives could participate. I’m up for Sr Mgr promotion and making a good impression is critical. Any tips? anything else I should prep?
I work at a firm that is predominantly white. We live in an area that's predominantly Hispanic, but they don't speak Spanish. I do and I'm always used as a translator. It's very annoying because I don't even get brought it on the case. They only want me to translate or talk to witnesses and that's it. It takes me away from my real work. I'm considering removing that I am fluent in Spanish from my resume to not deal with this in the future. Anyone dealt with this before?

Lately, I’ve had several stretches where I’ve been sleeping over ten hours each day. These episodes last 1 to 3 days. I don’t understand why I feel such incredible fatigue.

Irritated I have to fight through 80,000 Cannes posts on LinkedIn, to find relevant information towards finding work. Guess I could be the guy who follows the trophies around like Stanley Cup.

Dreading going back to the office tomorrow. The holiday break made me realize it’s not working, been there less than a year. How soon do you fold in the towel? Fake it until the right opportunity?
Worked at C-list agencies all my career but because I know a senior leader I got into an “A-list” agency. Have imposter syndrome but keep telling myself they hired me because they see something....

Every morning I see a very beautiful someone I wish I could have. I can tell she notices me too. Is there a way to spark little convo without it feeling forced at that time in the morning?
Disgusted that the former partner of commonground will be speaking at an ad age event. What’s he going to say? Fire everyone over email, change your agency name and pretend like it never happened...

First week, my boss says he wants me to get all the HubSpot E-Academy certifications (Social Media, Inbound Marketing, etc. ) like he did. Guess my degree and prior experience doesn't count for much?

I feel like I haven’t made great client work in 2 years. Every client either Frankenstein’s a good idea to death or doesnt want to pay for good work.
I’ve jumped around a few times in the last few years and I feel like jumping ship again isn’t a good look. Or does it legit not matter based on how things are going with the great resignation and all?
