I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
Any recs for hotels and activities in Cancun and Tulum? I'm ambassador on Marriott, but cash seems to be way cheaper for hotels in Cancun and Tulum doesn't have Marriott properties.
What does your retirement budget look like? Assuming no debt. What is your expected basic minimum expenditures (core life)? And what are you budgeting for fun and luxury? My basic is around 10k a month for taxes and food and transport and utilities. Luxury and fun is another ten. Big expense in basic is property tax. Big expenditure in fun is travel. I think my basic budget is too high and I could bring it down and be very happy in a smaller home and less restaurants.

Hi! Looking for brands or agencies who recently audited the influencer agency space or awarded a “big” pieces of business to an agency to do influencer work.

Despite being personality pro-choice, I’m not disappointed the most recent bill was blocked by the Senate. Folks on the left side need to do something besides submit more-or-less the same bill as the one that was blocked in February. Where is the incentive for the blockers to change their votes?

WFH helped me hide so much about my social anxiety! I love consulting because I feel it works so well with my ADHD (I don't check the time at all). I am rocking my role like crazy and I enjoy every second of it. But social anxiety is killing me AF.
I don't want to use meds, but at the same time, social interactions can easily make me depressed! I am always scared to fail.

Need some advice. My fiancé and I are planning on getting married in July 2022. We had a discussion the other night about where we would live after getting married - she lives in Kansas City currently (originally from abroad), I’m from NYC, born & raised. The problem is I told her I’ll live in my apartment for a while after getting married (~2-3 months), while searching for a new location for both of us to live. She got pissed & twisted my words saying that I’d rather live in my NYC (continued)
