Hey guys! I filed an ACH chargeback (voyager) with my bank a while back and I recently got my money back. I called the bank today and they said it’s actually an ACH adjustment and the party that refunded me is Voyager, not the bank. I’ve been seeing posts of ppl getting letters from voyager saying that ach chargeback is fraud and they’d take action. I’m not sure whether that’s true or not and if I should be concerned. Esp given that voyager was the party that gave me back my money. Help!!
Hi!I’m a FTM working at a big 4 firm(SM). I’ll be returning to work when my LO will be 6 months old. I have found a FT nanny but just can’t get my head around the fact that I’ll barely be able to see my kid ( Mon-Fri) due to the crazy hours my job requires me to work.I’m wondering if I should explore an internal opportunity or switch to a smaller boutique consulting for WLB? Suggestion from moms that have gone thru this? Anyone that has been able to stick to core consulting & manage motherhood?
Every time I try to teach self-portraits, I have tears. I am trying to remind them to be kind to themselves, that the goal is to always be improving and never perfection. I draw simply for them in any demonstrations I do. But inevitable, someone is crying. 3rd-6th grade, mostly. Anyone else?

After busting my behind for years, I am finally in a position to retire and live modestly. Problem is, I dont know what I would do with myself. I get depressed if I dont have responsibility and tasks and my ego is tied to being sucessful at my job. I rack my brain asking 'what do you want to do' and come up with no answers. My partner would still work. I know, 1st world problems, but anyone else at this point in their life?

I looked down at my boobs yesterday and they were wrinkly and old and I’m only in my 30’s. It took my aging cleavage for me to realize that this is what the stress of advertising does to you...it sucks the life out of you, it ages you. And it robs you of so much more than an a nice pair of tits. It steals you away from your loved ones during the times that matter, your health, and your self-compassion. And this is when I realized I have to quit this Industry.
