Attendees, action items, who assigned, who is responsible, due date, date for follow up meeting if any. Any items or links suggested to reference. These are a few that came to mind first.

Based on context of meeting focus on
- agenda
- outcomes
- who will deliver
- time lines
To start with. Prepare summary and follow up deadlines and send to everyone for feedback

In my past role I recorded board meetings and still jotted down what I took away which were key priorities. The recording really helped what I missed during the “ more than 4 people talking” that were not quite part of the agenda points.

My gf of a few months is sometimes impatient/ short w me. For example, she would sigh heavily if I ask her to repeat something she said earlier, or she would rudely state things like ‘isn’t that obvious?’. Whenever I bring it up that I would appreciate if she were kinder/ nicer to me, she says that’s just how she is. This makes me feel disrespected and slightly lacking of the warm and feminine affection I desire. Please advise.

Hi EA fishies! My mom is going through a divorce and has extensive experience being an EA/PA. But she would be re-entering the workforce after many years. She’s 57 and very energetic but I know that in this job market it might be tough for her to find something. I’ve already redesigned her resume and created a LinkedIn for her. Any advice on how else I can help her out? Thanks in advance!
