Ok I know some folks are heading back to the office. But for many we are still WFH. So question: how are you dressing for zooms? How has it changed over the last year if at all?

I typically wear a sweatshirt or sweater and just make sure my hair is brushed. If I have client meetings, I’ll wear a nicer sweater (like with a collar) and throw on some light makeup. For pitches honesty about the same. Have never seen a client or new biz teams look nicer - everyone always in t-shirts

truly nice sweater or top with leggings and brushed hair is a good day. I’ll wear tinted moisturizer, but I flat out don’t wear mascara anymore, won’t do it, can’t make me.

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??
