I've been freelancing for an independent agency for about 2-3 months and low balled myself by 50% less than I meant to ask. I didn't feel too confident about my abilities at the time and thought I could raise it later if they like my work. I was also more focused on building a better book. They're loving pretty much everything I've worked on for them and I feel more confident but I'm scared to ask for more even though I feel very underpaid and it's my fault. Any tips on how I should proceed?

Favorite work-appropriate fit and flare dresses? (Ideally something around or just above the knee.)

Context: Newer mom sitting ~15lbs higher than my usual and nothing in my closet fits. It’s been 8 months, and I think it’s time to bite the bullet… I’m a little extra curvy on bottom after pushing out a baby, so I’m feeling a little more confident with something less fitted on bottom these days! 😅

Just finished my second negotiation @ my fintech startup:

$110M valuation post series A, raising a $100M series B in the next 5 months @ $1Bn valuation.

Initial comp:
$85K equity + $10K bonus + $100K salary

New comp:
$175K equity (at same valuation - about 0.14%) + $140K salary

How does this compare with other companies at this level?

I’ve practiced litigation in DC for about 5+ years at a larger plaintiffs’ firm, and am considering a switch to a defense firm. Is there any insight to how many billable hours this would require, and how much time that would actually be? For reference, the firm has a 1900 billable hour requirement and the partner said I would have “no problem” fulfilling that based on the work they have.

Mens loafer sizing. Got a pair of ferragamo loafers and wanted to know how they break in. I was inbetween the 9 and 9.5. The 9.5 fit fine with some space but I was worried how they would break in and stretch over use and become loose. The 9 fit a tad too snug on the width end. Should I stick with the 9 or go 9.5?

PTO means time off.

Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".

It isn't a suggestion that they are unavailable. They are unavailable.

If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?

Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.

Whatever it is, it can wait.
