How are others handling moving office home when you are in your late 60s? I am re-Vising my practice from trial practice to probate and estate planning with some PI. No one wants to buy any of the textbooks or other trial books or medical books I have. For those of you who also are changing their practice, how dealing with the expense of practice stuff you bought but no one wants anymore? My binders were dropped off at eight at an elementary school. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
I was supposed to go out of town this weekend but I’ve been up most of the night because I’m sick 🙄🥺 Now I just feel sad and bored, so much for celebrating on being vaccinated 🥲
Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/

Looking to buy some disability insurance but since our 'duties' as advisors include sitting in a chair, looking at the computer screen, talking on the phone, how hard is it for us to qualify for DI?
Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about. However, within the first few weeks I suffered a major medical setback which led to a crippling bout of depression. I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
Costco is selling washable black fabric masks by 32 degrees (brand) that are far more comfortable to wear than those medical masks. Highly recommend especially if you are not at high risk.
Lol to the partner saying “no pressure on coming back to the office” but mentions it in every single team meeting, talks about how great it is for the client to see us there and even offers free lunch and drinks 😂 I mean thank you but do you really want to risk your whole team being out sick?

Gt does GT reimburse for cell phone bill?
So I’m one of 2 BA’s on a project where we’re not given much responsibility by our SC( He’s acting M). He owns almost everything from USI calls, calls with the clients (he leads/doesn’t include us), and only allows us to execute testing and when I ask to support in other activities he says “it’ll be easier if I just do it.” I understand that however how are we expected to develop, learn, and get ready for our next roles? I just feel as if he’s not very good at delegating.

Have a call on Friday with the CEO of an environmental entrepreneurship non-profit. It could lead to a professional opportunity and maybe even billable work I can refer to my firm down the line. I’m going in with an open mind but little concrete information on his entity and goals and ways I could get involved. What questions would you ask such a person?
