Las Vegas - my agency laid off three from my small team yesterday and I am crushed.

This is a tough one. I think the best thing you can do is stay informed, acknowledge people’s feelings including your own about the fear of the unknown. Provide the space for your team to be able to talk to u about anything. I’m trying to keep myself focused and remind myself that I cannot control the spread of the virus in my community but I can control my actions and reactions to it. So I’m on 🐠 more often because it helps relieve my anxiety. Hang in there.

After 2y of wfh & witnessing / overheating all of my husband's job, I've found myself losing respect and getting frustrated with his work.

He's a VP at a startup, and it seems like most of his day is just incredibly inefficient meetings and make work. Most of the people who work there - including the founders - have little job experience outside the startup, and while they're making some progress, it seems like they're all just flailing forward & wasting time having meetings to feel important.
