Planning to quarantine w my SO in a cabin for a bit, but it doesn’t have internet and they want to charge us an obscene amount to install it. Does anyone have any portable internet solutions that can handle zoom calls, etc?

Phone hotspot? I also think you can add dedicated hotspot devices to your phone plans for like $30/mo (very unsure on the price, call your provider!)

A cabin isn’t home and that doesn’t sound like essential travel.

Do you have a work phone that comes with a hotspot? If not, maybe look into the costs of adding to your personal plan?

Mifi from the office?

Clear and Verizon use to sell hotspots. You would each need one.

Can you rent a pocketwifi?

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.

Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.

It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.

Pro tip: finding it hard to disconnect while working from home? At the end of the day, actually power down your laptop and pack it away in your bag with your power cords,mouse, etc. same you would if you were leaving the office or traveling. Need to take it a step further? Also disable your email/Skype notifications on your phone so your not tempted to check them immediately. Happy Memorial Day weekend FB!

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
