SPG dies a merciful death in late 2018.

Would the death of SPG mean the death of lifetime nights or would those transfer to Marriott?

@P1 End of nights toward lifetime, but they've confirmed that if you earned it they will honor it.

Merciful? Seriously tho, fahq Marriott.

I’ll be traveling around alone. Female.

As someone with ADHD, the impulsive side of me speaks up in meetings without fully processing the information. Then when corrected, I beat myself up for the rest of the day. What has ended up happening over time is that I have started to come off as an introvert (because of the fear of being wrong) and also with low confidence. This is not a good trait in client facing roles where we are constantly making recommendations and clients look up to us. Anyone else deal with this?
