I’m hoping to move to a coastal MD town in the next 1-3 years (from Philly). There don’t seem to be many job opportunities, if any. My plan B is to work remotely, but I’m worried that the available opportunities won’t allow for growth or promotion. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with working remotely in corporate law (outside of COVID of course). At the time I move I’ll have 3-5 years of experience at an Am Law 100 firm in M&A.

How do people balance living for today and being responsible enough to prepare for the future? I’m 40 and have been really concerned that I’m not living life enough. Just doing the things that make you happy whether it be experiences or material things. My biggest fear is retiring early or whenever and being too old to enjoy it or having less time to enjoy it. Just seems like so many people are getting sick or even worst dying much sooner than expected.
Before COVID, I signed a lease for a new apartment which is double what I currently pay in rent (bc no roommate). Been applying for a second job for additional spending money. Problem - I have an interview at a FroYo place but starting to feel guilty about taking a job away from someone else who may actually need it in the current environment. Am I overthinking?

Hello everyone I have 29 years as a dental professional in Texas. I started as a dental assistant back in 1993. As my career progressed as a RDA, I moved to the front office and eventually management. I even taught dental assistants and became the Program Director of a DA program. COVID opened up remote work for me, I manage eclaims, claims corrections and billing for two offices. $20 per hour, no bonuses or incentives, I know I am not getting paid enough! Any input would be appreciated.

Are there any other Project Managers who have ADHD ? What type of PM work do you do? Outside of it just not being what I want for a career path if I advance / I don’t find it rewarding anymore, I have greatly struggled as I’ve moved up and now with the simplest things. I’m turning in my notice this week because of how badly it affects my well being especially the last year and a half. I plan to take a long time off and look for something once I have resigned. Any insight is appreciated.
Hi 🐠 ! If I’m 100% new to casing (have a business degree but have been in audit for a year), how long do you recommend practicing case interviews to be strong at it? Is 6-8 weeks sufficient? Would likely be applying for analyst/associate roles. My friends in consulting keep reassuring me that it’s a learned skill but after watching my first case interview ngl I’m pretty intimidated 😅

Hi friends. For any of those that exclusively breastfed for first few weeks of newborn - any tips on how to get myself to sleep in between nursing sessions? Finding it really hard to sleep (cont)
Moms, what is your opinion on goat milk formula? I am hearing conflicting things. My baby’s pediatrician did not recommend it, because these formulas are new and not enough studies have been done on them (as opposed to Similac and Enfamil which have been around forever). But I’m also hearing from some people that it’s closer to breast milk and easier to digest for babies. Have any of you done any research on this and have a perspective to share? Many thanks!
Do your nannies generally follow your guidelines or do you have to accept their ways? Ex: I would prefer our toddler feed himself, but nanny continues to feed him with a spoon because it’s quicker

I may have had the littlest breakdown tonight. I’m 8 weeks post c section and I have the most wonderful little girl (I know that’s the important part). But I just did some research and it looks like the skin “shelf” above my incision may not go away. Tell me there are success stories out there?
I am a terrible wife! It’s my husbands birthday today (39th) and I did not even find time to get him a gift. We came out of state for an extended weekend with my young toddler as a kind of birthday treat, but I realize that I am just not making enough efforts. I just got him a slice of carrot cake and made a super simple breakfast. I had to put this down somewhere! I almost feel like all I am doing is running behind this little energy bunny all day all night. Sorry, vent over.
I can’t believe I’m asking, but I’m considering a breast lift after baby #2. Any other moms thought about it/done it? Pros/cons, considerations? Cost, recovery time?
Is anyone here a SAHM? My partner and I are 3ish years away from kids, but the plan is for me to stay at home. I am, for the most part, excited about this. One of the main things I’m concerned about is finding ways for my mind to stay sharp / engaged. Has anyone found a good routine that incorporates time for reading, or local mom’s groups that discuss things beyond kids? TIA.
My 13 MO is asthmatic and has been 18 pounds for the last 6 months. My pediatrician is concerned and suggests me to give him breast milk when he wakes up at night which is atleast 4 or 5 times. We couldn’t sleep train him due to his asthma attacks when he cries continuously and I am so done pumping and feeding through the night with a full time job. He eats way less during the day and compensates with breast milk at nights. I don’t know what I am looking for but any suggestions. I trust the ped.
How do contractions really feel? FTM and I’m starting to feel a little pain in the lower part of my belly. Given I usually have a high tolerance for pain(after a ton of sports injuries) not sure what is true labor/contraction pain. Trying to avoid a car baby or a lobby baby😅
P.S: I don’t have a lot of pain during my period (which is what my mum keeps saying it’ll feel like). So unfortunately that reference hasn’t helped! Any advice helps!!
