Hi Dance Teachers! What have been your favorite “get to know you activities” over zoom on the first few days of school?

My CEO is literally *always* on Slack. 5 am? Online. 11 pm? Online. Saturday, Sunday, holidays? Online. I know I’m not really expected to work around the clock (though I often do), but having him never, ever not be online is stressing me out. How do y’all deal with this? Just put it out of your mind?

Anyone else getting conflicting messages on whether it is permissible to use Zoom with federal agencies? Some are insisting on using it (MSPB), some are saying absolutely can't use it (DHS, USDA).

I’d like to start a female only network group. I’m thinking it can be virtual, maybe meet in a small group via zoom once a month so everyone is meeting with different people every month. Maybe a google doc with the type of work the person does and their contact info. No fees, just women lifting other women up. Any Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Thanks!! I’ve never joined a network group before, so I’m sure there are details I haven’t even thought of.

I just left my old firm and opened my own practice. I practice estate planning and elder law so it is not uncommon to meet clients at their homes or nursing facilities. Because we are in the middle of a pandemic and people are getting used to zoom conferences as well, I am considering foregoing a store front (at least until the pandemic is over). Has anyone opened their own firm and not opened a store front? If so, did that work? What were some things that helped you make it work? Thanks!
