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.

How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.

How far into implementation and execution do you get as a strategist (and what's your specialty).

New mom here currently on my maternity leave! Both my spouse and I are working from home because of covid. I go “back” to work in January when baby will be 3 months old.

Would that be manageable? And at what age did you put baby in childcare (nanny? daycare?)?
