Looking to come out of "retirement" after staying home to raise my girls for the last 5 years. I've always worked in sales due to finding out it's something I am blessed at. I have a few questions, but will start with my strengths first. I've surpassed sales goals at previous positions that my superior regionals could not achieve. Very limited characters allowed, very sorry of that sounds conceded. I don't know where to apply or where I fit anymore. I don't have a degree.

I also reentered the workforce after staying home with my daughter and son for a few years. I would say that one thing you'll really want to do is brush up on industry news/best practices/etc. Even though sales don't evolve as quickly as other industries, you want to be "in the know" before heading into interviews.

Have you started looking at all?

I recently learned from 3 different employees that left (voluntarily) they were making 98-105k. They were outside candidates and were all hired within the last year and for the same position, and same regional territory. I have worked for the company 3+ years and went from a core position, to large loss. I was given a 10k raise putting me around 78k. Yes.... some of these individuals have Lardge Losss experience but does that really make a 20-25k difference? Any advise!?

Rumbling in the office is that we are paid the lowest of the entire Cleveland market. Plaintiff L&E. Small firm with huge growth. New hires are offered $55k, most of us here 3 yrs make $65k.

I think we are suffering growing pains, but peers say we are being taken advantage of. What are salaries in this market?

I have a mortgage that I would like to pay off ASAP ($250k @ 6% interest). My lender allows me to recast the mortgage if I am at least $5k ahead in my principal payments. I am about $10k ahead now. The mortgage recast fee is $250. If I recast now and continue paying the same amount, am I correct that it will help me pay off the loan faster than if I just keep making the same payments?

Respectfully, if you don't know the difference between a recast and a refi please don't respond 😅

Ever had an attorney randomly pull food that they somehow squished in their shoe during long court days. One day, it was taking forever in federal court due to the COVID backlog. An attorney was sitting at a table across from where I was sitting. Kept noticing him reaching down like he was scratching his foot then would bring his hand to his mouth. Very strange. Court concluded and I saw him by his car taking off his shoe and pulling a squished baggy with half a sandwich out of it.
