Successfully wrapping up a tough client engagement and the partner wants to know how you hung in there

How far into implementation and execution do you get as a strategist (and what's your specialty). I notice social strategist tend to get way more into the executional portion, even writing copy etc. whereas brand strategy tends to roll off once the briefing process is done.

To those divorced / divorcing... is it bad not to finish a divorce without a lawyer especially if you are a male in NYC? I have been drained and I cannot afford anymore. The lawyer is happy to see the other side dragging the case and does not raise the issue with the judge when I tell him to.

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.
