Sales

Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)

Sorry you’re experiencing that! So far all of my existing clients have been very gracious about delivery dates and development roadblocks... It’s the potential clients that are killing me honestly. Coming to us with very serious, “ASAP” problems so we shift gears provide all the support and guidance we can, then they ghost. On to another fire with not so much as a heads up.

Oh my gosh! That is the worst. I think they are just price shopping/ bidding out with multiple companies but it’s still so frustrating!!! It’s like we get so excited to break through to a prospect & all of a sudden they vanish into thin air without a trace

My dad who lives in Asia just announced that he had a medical issue. I’m starting to enter the age where I’m going to take care of him financially. It’s a $2,000 hospital bill which in the US is nothing compared to what it represents there (which he can’t afford). He’s going to be fine! Just wanted to share with this group as many of you can understand what it feels like to support your parents when they’re old, not the other way around. I feel so blessed I can help him. 🙏🏽

Would appreciate any help. I'm alone and need to cook for a sick family. I work ridiculously long hours so I'll have to wake up at 6 to cook. I'm hopeless in the kitchen. Can anyone point me to some quick recipes that don't take too much time? Is getting a crock pot worth it? Thank you in advance.

How do you manage meals/snacks while on the road? What are your favorite products to pack for the trip? Would love links. Food from restaurants makes me sick, fat, and gives me brain fog

Question: What is the very first memory you have of the police or personally interacting with the police? I’ll go first. My first memory of the police was of having my rights violated and being denied medical care after a traumatic brain injury. I was 12. My husband’s was the police putting a gun in his mom’s face. Details in first comment.

My boy is just over 1yo. He likes me way more than his mom, excited to see me, upset when I leave, clings more to me when sick or hurt, even knows what to call me but doesn't say mama. Anyone similar?

Does anyone have advice for switching to a competing (boutique) firm without causing animosity? I’m a first year, and my current firm took me in like a stray cat and nurtured me, but now their direct competitor (and better) firm is trying to poach me. I’m caught between loyalty for my current firm and a better career trajectory at firm B (partnership track, more $, rockstar senior attorneys, better cases). I just feel HEAVY guilt and would want to reduce any ill feelings if I do leave. Possible?

Started a job at a tech company. People, culture, hours, benefits/pay is great. However, the role is not what I was expecting. It’s junior & administrative/sales oriented. I thought it would be more analytics & strategy based. Just got another offer for a corporate strategy role. Culture isn’t great, pay/benefits aren’t as good but decent, but I’d learn so much more in the role & it’s a manager title . What do I do? I’m early in my career. I’m happy rn but the role isn’t good career wise
