I'm already barred in a UBE jurisdiction, but because California is still full of gatekeeping jerks, I gotta take the bar exam again. I'll also have to do it working full time.

Have any of you done it? Any tips?

I am finding it much harder to multitask as I get older. I get frustrated and flustered. And I’m in my mid 40s. Anyone experiencing this? How do you manage?

Thank goodness there were no phone cameras or social media when we were young and stupid
Got a call from a former boss to join their boutique HNWI RIA. This was an industry I was interested in after my first career. Feel like there is limited growth in my current role. Should I leap?

40 y/o, been in the biz for nearly 20 years, and have watched all my peers make partner. Am I kidding myself that I’ll ever make partner and is it even worth it at this age?
Have been working my ass off to get to partner for a long time. Overcame a whole bunch of challenges (bias, personal tragedy etc.). Now that it seems in reach I feel numb and burnt out.

Parents of college kids... do your kids date? My son is a frosh and he says all the girls he's met so far are bat shit crazy. I'm taking his word for it as I have no other info. What have you heard?
Awww this is so cute.

Anyone ever use a career coach? I have felt off track in my career for the last few years. I’m in an executive role. I’m not sure what to change…the role, the company, the industry, or me. I’m a little leery of career coaches because it doesn’t appear they have any official training.
Hey, all you folks who started when I did and actually became execs while I still flounder, have you used professional résumé writers and exec recruiters?

Congratulations are on order regardless. However, if you need I know I great urologist who can help you take care of not expanding the family further
I mean first we have to figure out what the risks are and get all the testing done. But next we have to figure out how we are going to manage this! I’m 45. Was planning to retire in a few years when the kids go to college! Our place isn’t big enough for another kid. Our cars aren’t big enough for another kid. But I really couldn’t be more excited. Need to keep my hopes in check as the chance of miscarriage is like 50% I think
We all figure it out and make it work. You can't go OCD on the planning... you obviously didnt go OCD in "planning" not to get pregnant.
It will be absolutely fine... financially, physically, and parenting.
Life happens and we figure out how to deal with it
I had my first at 41 and second at 46. Wife is 6 years younger. Yes there are risks, but also rewards. Best of luck!
Congrats. Had my last at 41. Hubs was 49. We have a 10 year difference between oldest and youngest. It's worked out well for us so far.
If you’re going to dance, wear shoes.
This happened to friends of ours. They’re oldest two are in high school and the youngest is in 4th grade. Seems to have worked out fine with them. It’s crazy to have a 9 yo with a senior and sophomore
Yeah. When I would see that, I’d always think. How did that happen this day and age :)
Congratulations are definitely in order first. Best of luck!
Huge congrats... I wish I had one more!! :)
CONGRATULATIONS! Hope all will go well. In my mid-40s and just had a baby a few months ago and it’s so great!!!
And I’m thinking I may want another one...
Wow congrats and thanks for the congrats! All seems to be going well. We are having genetic testing next week. Did you all do that?
Yes, we did genetic testing for sure. You want to be prepared and know in case you have chromosomal abnormalities and decide where to go from there. Also be prepared to go to a high-risk doctor for regular check-ups. I enjoyed the many ultrasounds and opportunities to hear the heart beat a lot more frequently than just regular OB visits. Good luck and hope genetic testing will go well.
Congratulations. You will figure it out. All things happen for a reason. 😉
Isn’t it nice to have a choice though ?
What do you mean?
Just what I said. It’s obvious that you are going to keep the baby Congratulations!
