Starting to see the writing on the walls, went ahead and got an offer else where but thinking I’ll decline. I don’t want to take the job and leave in a few months to a year. But feeling like I need to ply the game so I don’t go 1-6 months without a job. Thoughts advice.

So as someone who is making the most of the sales these days... What are you favorite places to buy suits?

I only like pant-suits (no skirt-suit recs please). I am hourglass-shaped, with big hips + 32DD bust and a small waist, overall a size 4-6. I tend to like skinny pants in a suit. Would love fun color pant-suits (like dark green, etc.)

Thanks for any tips!

Thoughts in continuing to rent in a small town just outside the city and staying remote vs moving to a bigger city and paying significantly more? Make 100k, paying 1k/mo in rent, maxing 401k, roth IRA, HSA, and extra in brokerage. No plans of buying a house (want to keep renting for flexibility as I invest the rest but obv can change down the line).

I began a new position 2 months ago and took on a managerial position where I oversee a team and a week ago, my manager and I was discussing a delay that happened and how she gave my team feedback and suddenly she said to me that she doesn’t mind restructuring the team and make it a team where everyone reports to her. She also said that the only reason she is “allowing” me to lead is to gain management experience. I was shocked because I got hired as an experienced manager. What would you do?

I was given a promotion 6mos ago & told that the position was a lateral move & a raise would be given at my 6 month mark. Throughout my time at time at this company I’ve realized that they call people in to give their raise on the exact date of milestones (i.e: 6 mos, 1yr, & so on). It’s now been one week since my 6 months in this new position. I’d like to reach out to my boss and set up a meeting to review my work & discuss a raise. Should I wait a bit longer or should I set this up now?


I am interested in getting an executive career coach to help me understand how to get from where I am at now to an executive one day. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on company or a person
