Charge it to room and pay with Amex to double up on points. You'll get Marriott points for spend on the bill and credit card points for paying with the card.

Whatever Pariveda is, the response was spot on.

Yup, do it with the SPG Amex and get even more value. You get two SPG points per dollar at Marriott with the SPG Amex.

Everyone has heard the excuse “I’m underperforming because my territory sucks”. What if you can prove that you are objectively being screwed by the territory you inherited? There’s only so much “find a way” you can manage in barren land and it’s quite tiresome to see your peers succeed off of less than half the effort. The conversation with management has been had and, while empathetic to a degree, no solution has been offered.

I’m confident in my sales ability. Where do I go from here?

I just started this job a month ago with an IT startup. And it’s not going as I had hoped. Both founding partners have different implementation approach, this one says one thing, the other says another thing. The only constant thing is the guy who brought me in. I feel like I’m drowning in this role and nothing I do seems to be “their way” of doing things. I get tense at the thought of clocking in for work. How soon is too soon to switch jobs. I AM NOT OKAY

Is it naïve of me to not be intimidated whatsoever by job titles, ie. Executive or otherwise?? I feel that, at the end of the day, we all go home to our families, our children, our issues, our joys, and that we are all mortal, living human beings on the same playing field. I’m not scared or intimidated, and view those who try to coerce as feeling insecure or lacking within themselves.
