Been getting huge waves of not wanting to work because I know I’m only in it for the money. Except that doesn’t even feel worth it anymore. Just started a new project that isn’t interesting, but is chargeable. Need some advice from fellow fishes. Oh, to add on, I had a vacation planned for Santorini earlier in April, but was cancelled due to COVID. 😭
I took PTO today (to my job) and worked today (to my family) and just sat in my home office on the internet
Has anyone bought a vacation rental in Orlando? Any tips? Looking at reunion, windsors, champions gate. It’s all a little overwhelming. I’d plan to rent it out part of the time on vrbo and stay there maybe a month a year.
Did Netflix set the House of Cards release for tomorrow to prevent us from binge watching over the holiday weekend?
I’m done trying to compensate for a broken system. I know it means that the kids will suffer from a substandard education, but as long as they think we will pick up the slack it will never change.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
It’s times like these... when I am dialing into a client call on a Saturday of a holiday weekend at my grandparent’s house...that quitting seems like the only option.
Are there any video conference tools which provide option for recording in the free version? E.g., zoom has the recording option but meetings can only be 40 minutes
Hi, everyone. I searched and didn’t see a relevant post. Is it best practice to have your video on during an entire 5-hour CLE on Zoom? Very much hoping not- if not, is there like a % that I should have it on?
Looking for inspiration: what’s the best virtual event you’ve seen so far? (Loving random slack groups and of course Fishbowl!)
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Reminder for any members of AIR or production company EPs/HOPs/Bidders, if you wanna join the Green the Bid presentation on zoom tomorrow morning please hit me up privately!
Thoughts on Google RTO office date? Will it be pushed back more than Jan 10 with the holiday season and all? Don’t want to relocate if we will be postponing RTO
Zoom meetings are a lot like dating after 30: soft light, flattering angles, and relying on personality can get you surprisingly far.

Anyone have thoughts on Hudson Advisors/Lone Star Funds if you’re in the dfw area? Know anything about working there? Don’t know much about them, if anything at all
Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices

Hey 🐠, what is your base salary vs. the price of your home when you bought it? I’ll start - I’m currently at a 115k base and paid $218k for my home. I live in Atlanta.
I’m currently on PIP b/c low utilization and “Performance trends” during my first pregnancy. I’m pregnant again, I was not promoted due to PIP, does that mean I won’t be eligible for paid mat. leave?
I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?
Working on building a website to assist with award bookings and provide credit card/points consultations. What would you like to see out of this type of service?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
