PSA. In today’s time, there really is no excuse to misspell a person’s name. Slow down. Pay attention. Treat every recipient of a communication as if they were a client. If I see or receive a communication where my name is not spelled incorrectly, I automatically judge your attention to detail.
Any stories of what happened AFTER you had to back out of some work because you were getting overwhelmed with what’s on your plate? I had to tell a partner I couldn’t help him with a training after initially agreeing because I was worn thin between two different deals. I’m fairly new to the firm so am a little concerned this is going to affect me reputationally, but figured it was better than blowing a client-related deadline. Fwiw he was nice about it and his training I think went fine.
“Let’s get this stuff straight. I’m not your normal MD, I have realistic expectations and want you to push back when we need to renegotiate timelines with the client”
The next day....

Last week was the first client visit of my career - had a team dinner on the last night and we bumped into the client at the entrance. I walked in and expected someone from my team to walk behind me, so without thinking I turned around and made a hand gesture that’s exactly like the picture below and in a low voice I screamed “FOOD!!!” Ofc it was my client behind me and we were both shocked and didn’t know how to react… I ended up kept on walking. What would you think if you were my client😂

When the IRS (e.g., a RO/AO/Examiner) calls or writes a letter… How do you verify that it’s really the IRS and not a scam? I’m new to tax law and I’m worried that I’m going to respond to/answer a scam and give away client info (or my own tax preparer info). I don’t think my worry is unfounded due to the tremendous amount of tax/IRS scam out there but it would be nice to hear from some of y’all so that I’m not so worried about it…

How does a sole engineer at a company go about getting management to actually care how production machines run? I’m the only mechanical engineer at my company dealing with a half dozen cranky production managers who think that I can “work my magic” on a machine. It’s not magic, just ignorance about the machine actually works. How to I get a manager to stop caring about the end product long enough for me to actually teach them about their own machine?

I’m a 35-year-old graphic designer (art director in my current role) I realized I’m not very happy in marketing, and I'm falling behind on the things I can offer as a designer. Most companies ask us to know web design, motion or video editing, and to have good presentation skills. I realized I rather pivot and do something else entirely. The problem is I’m only good at design and not sure what else to do with my life. :( I also don't like pitching ideas.

Anybody have side hustles that are completely different from what they do on their job?

The only thing I can think of would be freelancing on the side and doing sql/excel analysis for clients on like Upwork or something.
