In your experience, who gets the better job, project, and opportunity? The introverted genius creative or the mediocre creative that can really sell.

Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)

3 months into a 6 month internal project. I proactively scheduled a feedback session with the “big boss”/key stakeholder tomorrow (I have weekly check-ins with my day to day lead weekly), and I am terrified. They are highly critical and can come off as abrasive, and any ad-hoc feedback I receive makes me feel like I’m never good enough. I’m expecting to have darts thrown at me and want to curl up in a ball and cry after... any advice? Just didn’t want to be blindsided at the end of the project.

What does everyone think about companies using crowdsourcing to raise equity? Specifically asking because I saw an ad that Winc the wine subscription company is raising a round starting at a min investment of about $1k. I also know fundrise and others have used this route. Is this worth investing in? A gimmick that won't give the investor any better of a return that stocks?

How to care less? I left my last position because I wore myself out. I cared too much about the work, was putting in crazy hours, and was usually angry because I felt surrounded by people who didn’t care enough. At a new role now, several months in, and I can see this happening all over again. Covid doesn’t help. Can’t have much of a life outside of work so I throw myself into work. I need help. I want less stress, I want to like my work and colleagues. What do I do?

I one hundred percent believe Juneteenth should be a national holiday, and thankfully my agency is observing it today. Is there anyone else out there feeing just slightly salty about the fact that I still have to use PTO for my religious holidays? And above that, it often falls within a pitch and I just end up working regardless. I know the two aren’t mutually exclusive and I’m also aware it’s not the right time to bring it up with HR. Just battling some bitterness I guess?
