Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?

Do you have any stakeholder friends to ask the boss for you in the meetings for continuity?

If you don't want it anymore read next paragraph and got the experience you wanted. (Btw take credit for all of it in interviews as you did the hardest part.)
Next time, directly ask if you are being asked to lead throughout the project. If not, say although you have appreciated the opportunity to contribute to those that should have been running it and be a team player the project needs continuity of leadership throughout it's life cycle. He has said before it is not your primary job and you are listening. You don't want to overstep boundaries.

If you want it and more, try to have a career meeting. This works is you have a fair relationship. Thank him for these opportunities to get visibility and trusting you to get everything online so the team can hit the ball across the plate. Ask lots of questions about these opportunities and what results he is looking for you to accomplish. Ask lots of questions. You are trying to ask open ended questions to find the plan for you. What else does he want to put you on that is coming? Talk about where you want to go down the road. See if he will advocate for you. If you want to stay on in the next one, ask for it directly.

Venting… I had a PC reach out last week for services (commercial real estate) who proceeded to tell me that their project is going to make me the “gold standard” , so rich and etc. further they wanted me to send them a plan of everything needed for all the phases of development and an estimated cost. The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.

Married couples, is it normal to ask your spouse for permission when your single friend wants to make plans with them? I asked a friend to accompany me as my plus 1 to the firm’s holiday party. She was all for it and only wanted to make sure she didn't have to work that day. After she gets married, I remind her about it again and she tells me she has to ask her husband for permission (exact words).
Guess what, he says no so now she's telling me no. She gave me his reasons but l'm calling BS.
