I have two contract offers: One is about Data Management/Quality project for 6 months, the pay is 5000£ per month, the other is product data scientist for an early stage startup based in San Francisco for 4 months, the pay is a lot lot less (less than 1000£ per month). Tbh, I am not a big fan of data management, and I totally see myself doing product analytics which is becoming a hot skill in DS field. Is it stupid to turn down the first offer and accept the second one? I would love some advice

I’m 30 years old and have been running my own (small) agency over the past two years, working with local businesses. I’ve got a solid book of client and spec work, with creative ad copy.

Now I’m looking to work at an ad agency as a copywriter. Honest question: is it a reach to pursue that? And, if it isn’t a reach, do I apply for entry-level?

I feel horrible - have been potty training my son since last Nov when he was 22 months. It’s been 8 months and he still doesn’t tell us he needs to go, but will go when prompted. Poops are better, at least he recognizes that feeling and will usually tell us but sometimes not early enough. My husband and I have been “trained” to prompt every 1.5-2 hours. Is it too late to reset on potty training??? I’m 38 weeks pregnant (tired!) and feeling guilty about the whole situation.
