Does anyone else find that they get way more nervous for zoom client meetings than they ever did for in person meetings? And how do you combat this? I just got feedback from the lead on my project that I didn’t seem confident when presenting my work in a client meeting last week. I have never gotten this kind of feedback before, I am normally good at presenting work. But I find I get more nervous for client meetings over zoom than when they were in person or even over zoom in the office.

Today, I got up, made coffee, changed and fed the baby, prepped a presentation, forgot my 6yo’s Zoom class, got her up and on the Zoom class, presented ugly news to my MD, did a school drive-by parade, fed the kids lunch, met with my directs, prepped the follow ups from the MD presentation, taught 4 homeschool lessons, said goodbye to my mentor, prepped for a pitch, cooked dinner, made my weekend to-do list, gave two baths, and scooped poop out of one bath. It was a slow day.
