Both my roomates work in industry - FS. Both work maybe 9-5 with a generous lunch break, and generous time away from their work setup

I've always been uncomfortable presenting, now have 2yoe on the job yet I feel my nerves are getting worse, to the point where sometimes I wake up at night on the day of a presentation, that didn't use to be a problem. It's a really frustrating issue and it's holding me back... Has got worse since I just switched to a new firm, I feel I'm so far from presenting with the confidence my peers show. Anyone have the same problem or tips on how you overcame this fear of presenting?

Unpopular opinion- I love being a younger female attorney. I use it to my advantage with old school male OCs. I find that I get what I want for me and my clients when I go with the strategy of “help me” rather than the overly aggressive ,”have something to prove” approach I see from my older female attorney mentors. I don’t get any less respect and everyone wins. 🤷🏻♀️

So when is our industry going to get pass the “optics” game of staying until a certain time? It seems like there’s a stigma of leaving around 5 as having an easy day.
