If I make my home look like a W hotel, will it be an easier transition between home and the road??? Lol
Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)

As an Indian visa worker in US, I feel Indian managers in ZS are very rude to me , one makes me work longer hours than white team members , never lets me present in workshops , and always criticizes. Last week I made a mistake in a internal report and he said that if I did that again he will book my flight to India. I have never faced this challenge with white managers. Is this a ZS thing or across all firms, I wish to leave because this treatment makes me feel like a lesser person

Currently 25 with 2 kids. The 1st one is 4yr old and the 2nd one is 8month old. Currently making a combined income of 285k with my wife. We have about 344k net worth. 401k & Megaback door Roth is max out. Not a fan of 529, because college can be free if you put in the work. Our only debt is our mortgage $1400monthly. We also have a brokerage account where we invest about 10k monthly in stocks. Looking to buy rentals, but we feel like stocks is the way to go for now.
I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
