I desperately want to switch jobs but every time I sit down to prep or network, I have an anxiety attack or I distract myself with my phone or the television. I have pushed out some interviews so many times that I don't know if the companies will agree to one more change. Anyone have any recommendations for how they worked through their anxiety when prepping for interviews?
Starting your own company takes guts and a huge leap of faith but why don’t you give it a go? Have you ever wanted to launch a startup? What are some of the reasons that are holding you back?
Sorry if this isn't relevant to this bowl. I have PCOS and was on birth control pills for 3 years. I got off it and we started trying right away. It's been 50 days and I didn't have my period. I was certain we got lucky and this morning the pregnancy test was negative. I had my hopes up too much and this test result hurt me more than I expected. I started feeling guilty about my weight, prioritizing my career and felt really disappointed. I know it's early and we can still try but it hurts 😞

Stumbled across this bowl after building out an idea for a new company over the weekend. Not a whole lot to offer just yet other than to say and that I’m pretty excited about it.
It bothers me that society feels the need to prioritize Homeless “ppl” and Criminals with corona vaccines over regular law-abiding folks. So out of touch..

Thoughts on Bo Burnham's Inside? It's honestly depressing not only in content but also to see one person create something so amazing just on their own. Here I am struggling just to make an alright ad, meanwhile I should probably just forget ads and actually make something decent instead. Sigh.
How do I tell my creative partner that I feel that I'm pulling most of the weight in our team? I don't want to make her feel like shit but I also feel that I can't keep going like this.
Ever since I started in advertising I have been given polar opposite critiques on my work. Some say I’m great while others say this isn’t the job for you. How do you keep telling yourself that you are worth it when a current manager doesn’t believe in you? I can’t seek out a different team as this is a small agency with a team of 20 and one creative director. I know feedback is subjective but it can be hard when you have one boss and they think you have been missing it lately.
