I’m just making sure I’m still doing things right for our industry. (I’m in advertising). Good friend runs a small manufacturing company. They are out visiting clients, shaking hands. Dropping off donuts and having dinners. This is nuts right? Please tell me it isn’t just me that is still only connecting via zoom. I’m worried because all of those things were a big part of my job before. But not now.

Let’s finish this up strong! What are your year-end self development plans?!
We have our last session of the year of our group/guest financial education cycles at our Downtown Toronto office this Saturday. We go through our first financial education session that we talk about basic to higher level of financial information; from saving, investing, risks and returns, registered accounts, etc. There is no cost and no obligation. If you are interested to attend in-person or via Zoom, let me know.

I am on my second project 6 months in and I am ready to leave. The toxic work habits is insane. I’ve tried everything to try to reduce recycle and redundancies. Tagging in teams, zoom working sessions. Regardless, we got in circles and work late hours simply because the SMs (yes 2) don’t give us their attention and change their minds constantly. Coming from industry to this the money was better but it’s starting to be less and less worth it

I just started dating someone (we've only had a few dates, taking it slow, haven't even kissed). Today is their birthday. Will be another week before we see each other again as both have kid responsibilities. Gift or no gift? I know where they work to have flowers sent, but is this necessary at this point (also, is it creepy at this stage)? I'm interested in the person, but obviously too soon to know whether I would want to date exclusively
