I have had an opportunity presented to me to make a switch from the underwriting desk to the agency side as a producer. To my surprise the base pay is equal, however the producer obviously has new and renewal commissions. Am I nuts to leave my strict 40 hour weeks behind for a chance in the sales world? Anyone else make the switch for better or for worse?
Do I need to fill out any immigration form etc if I’m changing my home address while on H1B? Work location stays the same - just shifting to a different apartment complex in the area.

Has anyone here ever worked remote from a different country for a few months? How did your job react? I’m just a little nervous to ask, even though my job is super flex. I only go into the office once a week right now, with a lot of team members being fully remote. My husband and I are thinking of going to Costa Rica January to early March to escape the bleak winter. I have the means to fly home on a whim if I’m needed for like a shoot or anything, so hoping it won’t be an issue.

I'm considering pivoting to copywriting because that's the part of my role I'm best at -- a lot of the account management stuff is draining, but I can whip out social and marketing copy quickly & I enjoy it. Wondering if anyone has insight / leads on making the jump from accounts to the copy side when applying for jobs? 5 YOE, 3 in-agency with a mix of automotive and pharma + a side gig as a published author with muliple books (hoping that'll help on the creative / copy end?) Thank you!
Any one from Citizens project in LTI?

When I talk to my friends in other industries, it seems like they have a lot more invested in their retirement accounts. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong.
Why do I keep feeling like I have to prove to parents that I'm highly educated and an expert in teaching their children? It's so insulting!
