@ OP - of course. If it's a red-eye from west coast to east coast, maybe I'll travel in yoga clothes, then change at the airport, but if short morning flight, I'm in work clothes ready to go to the first meeting. Once, I forgot work shoes entirely from a red-eye, so called a friend in town and borrowed shoes from her for the week, another time I forgot shoes I bought new shoes at the airport! :-)

Recently had some recruiters reach out to me about copywriter roles. I’m still pretty new to the industry, 2 yrs in, but I figured I’ll ask for a bit higher than what I’m used to.

I don’t want to switch jobs unless I get an adequate bump in my salary, but also don’t wanna reach too high and get passed over for someone else. Thoughts? 😫

I have a direct report that needs an INCREDIBLE amount validation. On our team Slack, they even feel the need to announce that they were first in uncovering a tiny bit of information - “@boss I found this first!” - and they work to make sure they are acknowledged for such. We’ve had multiple conversations about the behavior - there is no need for it. They can be a team player, but can also be very quick to take all the credit. Any suggestions for how to get this person to a more confident place?
