Any quick fixes on burnouts? Have been working at least 200% since September last year. I have multiple big deadlines all due today, and I have been writing slides while crying for the last 2 hours – it’s just slow and painful.

Open to leaving the law for a compliance/HR/other type position. Am I even marketable for something like that? Am I being unrealistic?

I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
How much does a creative director in healthcare at large agency in New York City with lots of experience make?
